Mid Century Modern

For the past two decades I've had a penchant for mid-century modern furniture.
I'm attracted to the sleek lines and classic, iconic designs.

Last week I saw this image on the blog, Apartment Therapy.  Certainly the view outdoors is stunning but the Barcelona chairs and stools, hardwood floors and Oriental rugs immediately caught my eye. Barcelona chairs are classic mid-century modern.  They are often seen in hotel lobbies and museums as well as homes.  

My first purchase of mid-century modern was this versatile Nelson Bench.  This bench is at home at the foot of a bed, in an entry way or working as a coffee table.  In a guest room it can double as a place to perch an open suitcase or in a family room as a spot for a TV.  Oh, and of course with a few cushions, a place to sit.  My bench has held all these positions at one time or another.

My favorite piece of all time is this Le Corbusier table.  This was my dining room table in my house prior to my move to this condo.  I still own it but it is in storage, waiting for an opportunity to be used again.

There are some great pieces I'd love to own.  

Ghost Chair 
based on Philippe Starck's interpretation of Louis XVI furniture Regency Shop

These Lucite chairs would be wonderful seating in a small dining room as they are transparent and would not appear to take up room.  I think it would make a fabulous desk chair with a bright pattern cushion.  

Modern Coffee Glass Table based on design by Noguchi  Regency Shop
This would be my first choice for a coffee table.  

Comfy Chair based on Womb-chair by Eero Saarinen Regency Shop
I would love to curl up in one of these chairs for a good read or a nap.
