InteriorsYou may already know this about me but I love Mid-Century interiors. It's been a love affair that has been growing for years, ever since I moved to London and got my own place. The one thing about our flat that I'm not 100% happy with is our seating. We have one sofa, it's charcoal grey and quite stylish but it doesn't add that much to the room. If our flat was a little bigger I would love to invest in a few armchairs for Simon and I, perfect for reading in and relaxing.
Mid-Century Living Rooms
I was recently introduced to the Norwegian brand Ekornes who make Mid-Century inspired sofa's and chairs and I've spotted a few that I really love. It's like Ekornes have managed to read my mind as their Metro chairs tick all the style and comfort boxes. I think that's why I love Modernist design so much, it just works. As Joe Sparano correctly said “Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.”
I wanted to share some amazing vintage images that have really been inspiring me to re-think our living space recently. Hopefully one day soon we'll move into a bigger place so I can re-shuffle a bit and purchace the armchair of my dreams.
Flickr is a goldmine if you're looking for vintage magazine clippings or images. I could spend hours browsing through those retro interior shots. Anyway on to the chairs. Here are my picks from Ekornes that I think would be perfect for a Mid-Century Modern scheme.
That teal one. Yum.
Do you have a comfortable armchair that you love? (If so I am very jealous!)
