Why choose mid-century velvet chairs?

Although we can trace the mid-century design trend back to the last century, its effect and popularity is still very much present in the homes of today. In the wake of more ornate and decorative design movements such as the Victorian, Georgian and Art Deco trends, mid-century furniture turned things on their head by focusing on simple, practical designs that celebrated quality and quiet sophistication. A focus on durability, attention to detail, immaculate finishes and clean lines have all helped mid-century furniture maintain a large and dedicated fanbase across the decades, bringing nostalgia and modernity together seamlessly.

Velvet is a fantastic example of these mid-century principles, offering luxury and practicality in equal measure. Velvet is surprisingly versatile, transcending trends and styles, and is easy to upkeep and clean. These made it a popular choice for mid-century furniture designers looking to bring a touch of elegance to their creations.

Introducing a mid-century velvet chair into your home

Danish and Scandinavian design are hugely influential to the mid-century modern movement, and many of the most quintessentially mid-century chair designs are brought about due to the efforts of Danish and Scandinavian designers like Vodder and Madsen. The use of geometric, straight edge upholstery against Danish oak makes a great addition to even the most modern sitting area or living room.

Alternatively, the more luxurious and ornate mid-century velvet chairs have Italian or French origins. Using tones such as deep crimson, these seats encompass all the luxury that springs to mind when you think of velvet as a material. These make a great addition to a more intimate setting, such as in the bedroom.
