Today, we are tackling the five essential steps that go towards putting together the mid-century living room you have always dreamed of. We will give you a few suggestions of our own, but don’t forget that, in the end, you should always go with what makes you happy and what will make your feel the most at home.
1. Get a proper mid-century sofa
When choosing your mid-century furniture, look for its most iconic aspects: clean lines, brass and wooden details, sleek legs. A great mid-century sofa should be upholstered in a comfortable fabric, and feature wooden or brass tapered legs. Our suggestion is Marco, by Essential Home, that can be upholstered in any fabric of our choosing!
2. Choose the right accent chair to go with it
An essential in every mid-century living room is an armchair. But it shouldn’t just be any chair… The first half of the 20th century was marked by the conception of iconic chairs that are still being manufactured today, which means mid-century armchairs are somewhat of a big deal.
3. Make it cozy
We believe any room should have a mandatory feature: coziness. Every room of your home should be comfortable and able to invite you in on its own, and a rug is halfway through achieving that look!
4. Let there be light
If we chose a mid-century chandelier for your dining room, this time we had to go with a floor lamp. Scofield, by DelightFULL is a mid-century floor lamp also inspired by some of the most iconic lighting designs of the 20th century, and it would serve perfectly as a reading lamp!
5. Bring in the coffee
Embrace Winter while it’s here, and grab a cup of coffee before cuddling up on your new mid-century sofa.
