Whether you are on the hunt for the perfect armchair to make an impact in your living room, or you’d like to curate a collection of mismatched retro seats in the dining room, shop Vinterior’s extensive range of 1950s chairs now.

Why buy 1950s chairs?

If you are thinking of embracing the mid-century look in your home, seating should be a key consideration. Furniture from the 1950s was both functional and sophisticated, favouring cleaner lines and less ornate detailing than had been seen in earlier periods such as the Art Deco era.

An increasing number of homeowners meant a higher demand for furniture, inspiring designers to create avant-garde seating in materials like steel, wood and leather. Nowadays, you can pick up an imitation 50s chair in virtually any high street furniture store, but there really is no comparison between these cheap imitations and vintage mid-century pieces built using solid woods.

During the 1950s, designers endeavoured to bring style and comfort to the home. Chairs with tapered legs, geometric forms and clean edges were popular, and often gave a futuristic feel to a room – Eames, Saarinen and Bertoia are classic examples of designers who showcased this particular approach. On the other hand, the exposed woods, plush velvets and soft wools of Scandinavian mid-century design have also proven themselves to be icons of the era, and bring a much-needed touch of warmth to the contemporary home.

Vintage 1950’s Dining Chairs

Don’t forget that mixing and matching eras in a room is also a great way of adding lively interest and perhaps a bit of wry wit to your interior decoration. Why not try accessorising your brand new kitchen table with some vintage chairs? Mixing a couple of 1950s dining chairs into a modern setting adds immediate character to any dining space.

At Vinterior, we stock 1950s chairs in all shapes and sizes, so whether you require a velvet cocktail chair or a set of six teak dining chairs, we’ve got something that will suit your needs.
