You don’t need a time machine to venture into the past. Travel from the Roaring ‘20s to the Mod ‘60s with some thoughtful choices in home décor. Take a look at these five chairs that have designs that were inspired by iconic looks throughout the decades.
1920s: The ‘20s gave birth to the Arts and Crafts style. A modern take on Americana, you would find furnishings like this in homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Back then our Marisol II Accent Chair would be considered a recliner. Its exposed wood frame has a rich merlot finish and provides a nice contrast to the earth-toned striped fabric of its deep-cushioned seat.
1930s. The curved and modern shape of the Callie Chair was inspired by the Art Deco style of the 1930s. The stunning lime green genuine leather seat appears to be floating in its chrome base. Made by Thread & Feather, you can easily choose another upholstery at no extra charge.
1940s. The elegant velvet slipper chair was a staple in chic homes during the 40s, which marked the beginning of Hollywood’s glamour years. Our Josephine Accent Chair from the HGTV Home Collection does the era proud, with its dramatic shape, button-tufted back and luxurious velvet upholstery.
1950s. During the ‘50s, classic furnishings took on modern details much like our Kingston Leather Chair. From Thread & Feather, the lines of this seat combine traditional wingback design with modern details such as curved lines, ivory genuine leather upholstery and nail-head trim. The affect is dramatic.
1960s. Finally, the ‘60s took the “mod” in Midcentury Modern even further. Lines were groovy and bold, such as with the Enrico Swivel Chair in black genuine leather. The chrome swivel base adds a contemporary element to the design of the piece, and this chair is ready to party.
