1950s Furniture

The 1950s was the age of the consumer. The post-war boom brought huge changes in the home; out with the old and in with the new. The 50s saw the introduction of open-plan living spaces, the fitted kitchen and, of course, more attention to detail. In fact, mid-century modern pieces have left a lasting mark on the way we design and furnish our interiors today. Take a look at the broad range of 1950s furniture here on Vinterior and discover why this classic furniture has such a lasting appeal. Whether it’s a statement chair or an accessory to add a pop of colour to your room, there’s an item to suit everyone’s home.

Why choose 1950s furniture?

The trend for mid-century furniture is not going away any time soon. The classic lines and comfortable shapes of 1950s retro furniture make them a stylish and functional addition to any room in any home. The furniture from this period is among the most iconic in the world: uncluttered, uncomplicated designs that are as practical as they are timeless. It is no surprise that modern manufacturers have sought to imitate the shapes and styles of the 1950s. But at Vinterior we believe that there is nothing quite like the real thing.

Ranging from traditional furniture to space age, futuristic shaped pieces this decade had it all. Laminated plywood furniture with clean lines (made famous by designer Charles Eames) dominated living rooms, home bars were introduced and became an important staple to any open plan living space now that emphasis was placed on entertaining in the home. The secret of interior design in the 50s was its ability to easily lighten up any room with good humour: shapes, materials, colours, all contributing to creating a peaceful and warm environment where you can feel at ease in maximum comfort.

One of the advantages of mid-century furniture from the 1950s lies in its flexibility. Equally as at home in an edgy, industrial living room as in a calm, Scandinavian-inspired setting, mid-century modern pieces add just the right amount of character and charm. Whether it is a set of mismatched dining chairs, a low-slung coffee table or even something as subtle as a foot stool, a vintage addition from the 1950s can help you to hit the right note in your home.

Investing in a 1950s piece means investing in a piece of history. The impact of introducing a piece of high quality mid-century furniture should never be underestimated as it can completely change the feel of your room. If you are new to the idea of vintage furniture Vinterior is a great place to start.
