Style inspiration: Make a decor statement with one of these mid-century modern armchair styles!

With clean lines and gentle curves, the minimalistic — and oh-so-fuctional — mid-century modern armchair will never go out of style.

To that end, if you’d like to incorporate a mid-century modern armchair (or several!) into your home decor, you’ll find you have no end of gorgeous options. In fact, once you start browsing the possibilities, it can be tempting to just go full-on MCM throughout your home!

However, unless your goal is to create an atomic age time-capsule (which, honestly, is an endeavor we here can fully support!), many interior designers suggest incorporating mid-century modern furniture and other pieces artfully into an overall modern aesthetic.

To help you make your selections, we looked through hundreds of chairs, and assembled a collection of iconic mid-century modern armchairs we count among our favorites.

Whether you’re hoping to find the perfect chair for your living room, family room or bedroom, here’s a buying guide with our recommendations for seating that reflects an elegant and timeless retro vibe. -BB
