A Close Look at Mid-Century Modern Furniture

Organically shaped, clean-lined and elegantly simple are three terms that well describe vintage mid-century modern American furniture. The style, which emerged primarily in the years following World War II, is characterized by pieces that were conceived and made in an energetic, optimistic spirit by creators who believed that good design was an essential part of good living.

Postwar American architects and designers were animated by new ideas and new technology. The lean, functionalist “International Style” architecture of Le Corbusier and Bauhaus eminences such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius had been promoted in the United States during the ’30s by Philip Johnson and others. New building techniques, such as “post-and-beam” construction, allowed the International-style schemes to be realized on a small scale, in open-plan houses with long walls of glass.

Materials developed for wartime use became available for domestic goods and were incorporated into mid-century modern furniture designs. Charles and Ray Eames and Eero Saarinen, who had experimented extensively with molded plywood, eagerly embraced fiberglass for, respectively, pieces such as the La Chaise and the Womb chair. George Nelson and his design team created Bubble lamp shades using a new translucent polymer skin. Harry Bertoia and Isamu Noguchi devised chairs and tables built of wire mesh and wire struts. Materials were re-purposed: the Danish-born designer Jens Risom created a line of chairs that used surplus parachute straps for webbed seats and backrests. The Risom lounge chair was among the first pieces of furniture commissioned and produced by legendary manufacturer Knoll, a chief influence in the rise of modern design in the United States thanks to the work of Florence Knoll, the pioneering architect and designer who made the firm a leader in its field.

As the demand for casual, uncluttered furnishings grew, more mid-century designers caught the spirit.

Classically-oriented creators such as Edward Wormley, house designer for Dunbar Inc., offered such pieces as the sinuous Listen to Me chaise; the British expatriate T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings switched gears, creating items such as the tiered, biomorphic Mesa table. There were Young Turks such as Paul McCobb — who designed holistic groups of sleek, blonde-wood furniture — and Milo Baughman, who espoused a West Coast aesthetic in lushly upholstered chairs and sofas with angular steel frames.

As the collection of vintage mid-century modern chairs, dressers, coffee tables and other furniture on 1stDibs demonstrates, this period saw one of the most delightful and dramatic flowerings of creativity in design history.

Finding the Right Slipper Chairs for You

Antique and vintage slipper chairs are popular fixtures in modern interiors due to their armless, compact designs with high backs and short legs making them perfect for even the tightest of spaces.

Slipper chairs originated in the 18th century. They were used in private dressing rooms and bedrooms for upper-class women to easily slide into their shoes, often assisted by a maid, when corsets and heavy petticoats made dressing a cumbersome task. Since this emergence in the boudoir, slipper chairs have become an essential piece of furniture in modern homes.

In the 1950s, American interior designer Billy Baldwinwhose clients included Jackie Onassis and Bunny Mellon — placed slipper chairs in the living room for the first time. He saw them as the ideal chairs for entertaining. Their low seats and tall, curved backs invite guests to sit; the lack of arms, however, places a limit on comfort.

Slipper chairs can be found in various styles, from the classic mid-centuy modern with unadorned legs to 1930s French Art Deco with a shorter back. Edward Wormley designed some of the most iconic mid-century modern slipper chairs with tapered legs, a round wood base, button tufting and a tall back.

Today, slipper chairs are among the chairs you should know. They can be used to frame a coffee table or contribute to a sense of balance in a space. A slipper chair can fit next to a bookshelf or be tucked into a corner along with a small side table to create a charming reading nook. In entryways, a slipper chair can be used while you put on your shoes. It is also an elegant addition to the bedroom or home office, where its soft shape adds a casual contrast to more rigid furniture.

You can find slipper chairs in materials such as fabric, wood and upholstery on 1stDibs. Browse a wide selection of styles, including mid-century modern, Hollywood Regency and Art Deco.
