I never considered myself a mid-century furniture person till now. When my mom was in town for Little Miss’s birthday, we made a quick trip to our nearby Habitat Restore. For those of you who are local, I have the best luck at the one on Monroe. I was telling her I wanted to update the look in the corner of our living room. Our two lounge chairs (which I just realized I have not shared) are here, but the far corner was looking needy. The room has slowly been evolving, and I wanted to update that corner.
We had a fake leather chair in the corner which was nice, and it lasted a good five years. It was a purchase from Target, and I was surprised at how well it held up. It worked, but I was wanting something different. I thought I would go in another direction and get a Bergere style chair.
I like the look of a spindle chair and thought this one might add some personality to the corner.
But then we came across a fun mid-century modern chair at the Restore, and it was in like-new condition. It was a bold color, and my rug was filled with lots of fun bold colors, including this green shade. I measured the chair, quickly went home and measured our corner space. I realized we could add some fun to the corner with this modern style chair.
The moment I put her in the corner, I knew it was a match. I LOVED it and LOVED the fun it added to the room. It still leaves room to get to the dresser behind it, but yet its color gives it a lot of presence. This is now my favorite room in the house.
It works great with the rug and the other decor, and it adds the wow factor. I definitely came out of my comfort zone on this purchase but am so glad I did. Actually, I have to thank Mom for the push to go for it! Our sofa is a conservative navy, the other chairs are gray, and this chair just works with the rug and pulls it all together.
I found this similar one on Wayfair in a fun color in case you are thinking about adding some mid-century to your decor.
Not only does this chair look good, but it is very comfortable. I can sit for a few minutes during nap time for a little read and beverage. Gracie likes to play it up and look sad since she is not getting all the attention!!
