Mid Century Modern combines straight lines with vibrant color palette and tones of rich wood. The mid century design movement took hold after World War II. The cleanliness and minimalism of the look is a core component. Architecturally homes with glass, lot of wood, sharp lines were the heart of this style.
Charles and Ray Eames were one of the icons in setting the foundation of the design style in the 20th century as they brought to the world iconic furniture pieces such as the Eames chair. As quoted in their biography, “they had an undeniable intuition for the rightness of particular forms, colors, and finishing details.”
Hairpin legs which were once common with mostly wooden mid century furniture have evolved to combine texture to bring mid century modern pieces to today’s homes. This chair combines a comfortable upholstered seat with the angled legs - purely mid century modern.
The legs and their streamlined looks in terms of tilt, angle, hairpin were a core of many mid century pieces.
