For Mid-century Modern era enthusiasts, chairs are kind of a big deal. Freed up from the restrictions of large scale furniture or architectural demands, chair design is where the trailblazers of early mid-century furniture really got a chance to shine. From Arne Jacobsen’s iconic egg chair and Eero Aarnio’s whimsical ball chair to the sculptural appeal of a simple Hans Wegner wishbone chair or a Charles and Ray Eames ultra-comfortable lounger, true retrophiles tend to go gaga over the sight of these revolutionary creations. That’s precisely why we created a line of mid-century inspired seating options – from accent, dining and occasional chairs to recliners, ottomans and benches – that would look right at home amongst these classics.
Featuring all the linear angles and organic curves you love, our selection of mid-century modern seating allows you to inject a substantial amount of retro personality into your living space, without sacrificing an ounce of comfort. Create an inviting place for conversation by bookending your sofa with a pair of complementary armchairs or liven up the corner of your living room with a strategically placed accent chair. Make a statement around your dining room table by assembling the perfect lineup of eye-catching Atomic era style dining chairs. Available in a wide array of upholstery options, wood finishes and mixed materials, how you combine styles, shapes and colors is entirely up to you.
One of the best reasons to choose seating that’s a nod to design’s golden era is you never have to worry about it going out of fashion. Built by hand to ensure they hold up to years of happy sitting, your custom created Joybird mid-century modern chair is not only durable, it nails it in the style department as well. Hand-carved iconic tapered legs, polished woodgrain frames, tailored button tufting, clean lines and classic mid-century silhouettes allow our chairs to effortlessly elevate the look of any room for a lifetime.
Made with the same commitment to sustainability and comfortability as our sofas
, our mid-century chairs feature hardwood frames and plush, premium cushioning that’s free of flame retardants and harsh chemicals. Our craftsmen and women saw, screw, nail, glue, stitch and stain every inch of your custom creation the old-fashioned way to make sure it’s perfect from top to bottom. A Joybird chair
may come across as an unbelievable vintage find because of the quality of craftsmanship, but take a seat and you’ll know you’re sitting in the lap of modern day comfort.
Whether your home is a homage to the best of mid-century modern era design or you prefer a more traditional or contemporary look, you can bet any of our MCM seating options will blend seamlessly into any room’s décor. So go on. Take a spin in a swivel seat, relax and unwind in a recliner or kick back with an ottoman. Like Goldilocks, whatever mid-century modern chair you choose, it’s bound to be the best seat in the house.
