Sell on Houzz – Learn MoreHow many midcentury dining chairs should I buy for my space?The number of dining room chairs you purchase is largely determined by the size of your table. A small table often includes four chairs, while a larger one will require six to eight seats. If you’re starting from scratch and buying an entirely new dining room chair set, consider how many pieces you’ll actually use (do you throw a lot of parties or are you more of an intimate dinner type?), and how many your space will comfortably allow. It’s also helpful to buy a few extra seats and keep them in storage in case you need to squeeze in a few extra people during a larger event. What kind of midcentury kitchen chairs should I get?Once you’ve figured out how many chairs you need to purchase, consider material. This is a relatively easy choice as you really just need to go with your family’s requirements. Plastic is great for kids since it’s a softer material and easier to clean; upholstered dining chairs and slipcovered seats always add a lovely element of both color and class, but are less forgiving when it comes to spills and dirt. Wood is often the go-to option, though a wood piece without a seat cushion is often uncomfortable for long periods of time, and seat cushions can collect dirt and debris relatively fast (this is also true for metal chairs). In the end, style is important but comfort is crucial, so when browsing dining chairs, consider pieces that blend flair with functionality.

In its hey-day Mid-Century Modern furniture was not one to play it demure color-wise. Upholstery in shades of saffron, cobalt, and poppy was commonplace. Updated for a new millennium, however; we’re inclined to favor shade-dwelling colors a bit more than the full-sun showstoppers. Mid-Century shapes look divine when cloaked in emerald, navy, and oxblood velvets. With tables and case goods, opt for pieces with slightly darker finishes and brass or turquoise hardware or inlays. Unexpected metallic or stone will make for a room that reads more ambiguous (and glam) than the usual, brisk Scandinavian look.

For those who dream in shades of cool California fruit trees (think sunburst orange and creamy avocado), like their teak-oiled arms accented with a bit of bright brass, and crush on anything Eames: meet Mid-Century Modern. A term used to classify furniture constructed between 1945 to 1970, Mid-Century Modern style encompasses everything from sparse Scandinavian pieces to exotic Brazilian masterpieces decked out in pillow-padded frames and butter-like hides. It’s a care-free, effortless style that brinks on boho, but thanks to integrated elements of Danish Modernism, never veers into overly layered or how-exactly-do-I-clean-that? territory.

New materials like bent plywood, fiberglass, and acrylic made it easy for designers to forge into previously uncharted territory. For the first time, they were able to produce furniture that wasn’t hammered and nailed together so much as it was sculpted. Additionally, manufactures like Knoll and Herman Miller provided designers with large-scale platforms on which to promote and distribute their designs. These manufacturers helped Mid-Century Modernism permeate the cultural consciousness, which in large part, has led to its enduring appeal.
