Midcentury modern took the design and decor world by storm a couple of years ago before it found a more permanent place in the upper echelon of the trends chart. From TV shows like Mad Men to innovative decor that brought midcentury vibe alive with modern flair, the last few years have definitely seen the classics from the 60‚s being revived to their past glory. But not all of us can afford to bring home an original creation of Eames, George Nelson or Isamu Noguchi. Then there is the question of preferred aesthetics. If you are looking for something that is both glamorous and midcentury in style, then the latest decor collection from Essential Home is a ‚can‚t miss‚!
Combine a coupled of dashing floor lamps along with a small, round bedside table (which can also be used as an end table in the living room when needed) to move away from the more traditional design approach. Low-slung beds coupled with equally modest bedside tables are a great choice in bedrooms with low ceiling and in attic spaces. From nesting tables that never fail to bedframes that come with cool, attached nightstands there are innumerable innovative options to choose from.
Much like the bibliophiles who needs plenty of space next to their bed (and then some more), there are many of us who simply cannot work with a tiny bedside table that offers limited surface space. The classic nightstand with a couple of drawers is still as cool as ever and many fabulous designs like the MEMO Night table from Baxter also bring along with them a dash of sculptural beauty. Be it the round nightstand, a mirrored beauty with plenty of glam, one that is draped in golden glitz or mismatched nightstands for the couple who have different needs – the bedside table you pick is determined as much by the style of the bedroom as it is by functionality.
Modular storage units are always useful to have around the house and with space-savvy decor making big waves in the last few years, adaptable cabinets on wheels are undoubtedly a must-have in the modern home office. Apart from giving you a convenient place to tuck away all those files and additional office supplies, cabinets on wheels can be easily moved around to create additional space when needed. Simply tuck them away underneath the work table after a long day and draw out the Murphy bed and your small home office is turned into a comfortable bedroom or guest room!
Dining chairs come in all manner of shapes and sizes, styles and shades. New chair designs, from a multitude of brands, appear on a regular basis: the choice is literally overwhelming. If you‚re in the market for new chairs, this writer‚s advice is to think long-term: invest in designs that will last for many years; buy chairs that you will cherish and care for. In the Theodor dining chair by OEO Studio for Brdr. Krüger, Danish modern meets modern-day design. Classic woodturning techniques combine with high-tech manufacturing to create a bold and beautiful seat. Brdr. Krüger is a Danish family-owned company founded in 1886 by brothers Theodor and Ferdinand Krüger: hence the name of the Theodor dining chair. And Theodor‚s sibling is the Ferdinand lounge chair, also designed by OEO Studio.
Looking beyond functionality and focusing on aesthetics, we start off our journey by delving into a world of sofas with a distinct red hue. The many shades of red and the finish of the sofa allow the bold and conspicuous red couch to be a part of many different living rooms. A dashing sofa in wine red and clad in leather looks as much at home in modern and eclectic living rooms as it does in traditional living spaces. Modern couches in lither tones of red, pastel pink and even burnt orange are increasingly becoming part of smart homes where neutral backdrops demand a splash of uplifting brightness.
