About Mid-Century

What style of accent armchairs will work for me?

Consider the room’s current design scheme as well as your personal preferences when making this decision. Do you want something that can double as a focal point? If so, find something with exposed wood and less padding, or a piece upholstered in a unique materials, such as a vibrant velvet. Do you want to sink into your new seat with a glass of wine at the end of a long day? If relaxation is your main goal, you’ll want a design where comfort is key — think thick cushions, wide armchairs, or even a giant papasan chair. Consider the following types of chairs for your home:

Armchairs: Just like the name says, these feature two arms, and are synonymous with comfy living room chairs. They come in many styles, but the most common are the soft and inviting oversized chairs that sport substantial armrests. These are perfect for curling up in, and can be super conducive to getting lost in a good book. Smaller models, like barrel or club armchairs, can be a great way to incorporate that same cozy feeling in a slightly more formal way.

Egg Chairs: The modern futuristic look of this iconic style, created by Arne Jacobsen in 1958, is sure to be a showstopper. It’s been said the design of the egg chair was inspired by the popular womb chair; both styles feature womb-like shapes and round, modern curves. Its cousin, the swan armchair, is a smaller, less encompassing version, but will bring an equally modern and fun look to any room.

How big should my armchair be?

This depends on where you plan to put it. Determining the size is all about understanding scale — if it’s going in a spacious living room, a larger armchair will work, but if it’s going into a tight guest bedroom or a corner, consider one of smaller stature, such as a slipper chair or a corner chair. In addition, keep in mind the other furnishings in the room so that the size of your new piece works with them, not against them.

What upholstery material should I consider for armchairs?

In many cases, upholstered chairs tend to be accent pieces, so it may be fun to use a patterned fabric or bold color to make a statement. Cotton and polyester designs usually come in the widest variety of colors and patterns, but might not be the winners if you’re looking for fabrics that are easy to clean. If your style is more easy-going and classic, consider leather or microfiber; both are fairly easy to clean and will withstand wear-and-tear over time. Always take your climate into account as well when choosing an upholstered chair — for example, leather chairs may not be the best choice for hot sticky climates.

Should I pair my living room chair with an ottoman?

Ottomans and footstools are great for kicking back and relaxing, and work well if your armchair falls in line with a more casual, lounging style. Think along the lines of a leather chair and ottoman tucked in the corner by a cozy fireplace. If it’s too formal, a footrest may seem out of place. You’ll always need to consider space: Will there still be sufficient room for pathways and access to the chair itself? If so, your next step will be to make sure to get the height and width right. To maximize comfort, both pieces should be of similar width, with the footstool being as high as or slightly lower than the seat height. Ideally, you should try to coordinate the pieces by matching color, material or pattern.
