Interiors Modern living room by Mineheart Modern



The Arne Jacobsen Egg chair has long been a favourite of designers worldwide. The timeless yet iconic design is perfect for any stylish domestic space, and surprisingly, can work extremely well in a range of different interiors. This chair is a leather version of the original design and comes replete with a gorgeous pumpkin hue. Pair with an interesting wallpaper, fur throw, and sleek fireplace, for a gorgeous and comfortable home.

Choose this mid-century modern chair if you love to make a statement, but still want to ensure you have an age-defiant and classic seat. 

6. Rustic ranch regality

There is nothing quite like having your own armchair. A place that suits you, fits you, and always greets you with a welcoming and comfortable embrace. Whether it's your particular corner of the room, or within a cosy study or bedroom, an armchair often feels like an inviting and sumptuous place to rest. Here in this example from Hugh Jefferson Rudolph Architects, the rustic ranch ambience of this armchair is ultra-welcoming. 

Pick this style of chair if you want a vintage touch, along with a worn and well-loved seat that will age gracefully and offer a comfy place to sit, read, or rest. 

7. The recliner

Who says an armchair has to be upright? Here in this example we take a look at a different kind of comfortable seat: the recliner. A recliner offers so much more than simply a place to sit. It is a resting spot, a nap location, as well as a stylish and often statement furniture item within your home. Recliners needn't be those dowdy and dull monolithic chairs your grandparents owned, these days there are countless stylish options that can add trend and elegance to your dwelling. 

This mid-century modern chair is an ideal choice if you would like to keep your interior looking sleek and trendy, while providing a sumptuous and relaxing place to unwind.
