What are the hallmarks of mid-century chairs?

Explore our online marketplace and you’ll discover a host of mid-century dining chairs, cocktail chairs, fireside chairs and occasional chairs for each room in your home and every occasion. Broadly speaking, the mid-century was a restrained period of time for furniture design, with brands favouring clean lines, curves an altogether smoother surfaces. While this period of time certainly wouldn’t be characterised as minimalist, there was certainly a movement towards space, allowing each piece of furniture in a room to breathe.

Tapered legs, slender wooden frames and bold upholstery were common during this period, perhaps because each carefully selected item in a home had to make a statement in its own right. While solid woods were certainly popular at the time, new materials such as fibreglass and plastics became common in seating – as can be found in Eames stacking chairs.

At the other end of the spectrum, G Plan were producing deeply comfortable sofas and lounge chairs during the mid 20th century, utilising padded leather cushions, and winged backs.

Why buy an authentic mid-century chair?

Collections of chairs represent the people that sit on them and we understand how important your living spaces are – across your lounge, dining room and kitchen. This is the time when family and friends socialise and eat together; it represents the heart of the home, that special place where you are with your loved ones or invited guests. It is your ‘down time’ when you relax and unwind in that safe and special place.

Choosing an authentic mid-century chair can elevate a room in your home to a different level, making it feel more magical and giving it a sense of identity. The stylings of mid-century furniture make it easy to incorporate them into a whole range of different interiors - from rustic to shabby chic, minimalist to ultra-modern. While a cheap, flat-pack set of chairs will certainly support the weight of you, your family and your guests, they can’t come close to creating the ambience that a genuine vintage chair can.
