As you all may know – I’ve been fiending over the Mad Men series.. loving the mid-century designs. I’m a 60’s child and growing up around some of those items I didn’t pay too much attention but I clearly remember seeing them. Now that I’m much older I realize the beauty of those pieces. Makes me want to re-design my home, and since I want to stay alive (the hubby would kill me – lol) .. I’ll just create a dream board.. (until I finally make up my mind – that is). I don’t have an full office so I decided to start with a seating area. I imagine having this space with floor to ceiling windows and a great view.
Everything you see here is from a website called Chairish. I love this site because it offers so many different items to choose from. It’s truly their motto – “Where Design Lovers Buy & Sell” I had so much fun putting this look together that I believe I’ll be doing more. I love playing around with different looks, textures, styles and designs. With the plethora of items Chairish offers, you could really go design-happy-crazy. I even incorporated a couple of items sold through our Pieces of Time Shop. To view more of their items, click here to their Mid-Century Modern Collection. This collection features clean design, beautiful woods like teak, and graphic patterns all combine to make Mid-Century Modern pieces forever classics. With iconic makers such as Adrian Pearsall, Herman Miller and Milo Baughman, fans of this style can easily find vintage couches, used lounge chairs and pre-loved artwork to enhance their interiors.
Let’s look at the items I chose.. I chose this chair because I love the shape and two-tone fabric. It looks so comfy, makes me want to plop down in them and cross a leg.
Who doesn’t remember the tension rod lighting… Isn’t this a sweetie with bit of a bohemian flair. This item is currently listed in Pieces of Time through Chairish.
Next is the credenza.. The sleekness of this piece has a timeless style of appeal. Perfect for a flat stand TV or
Hang a vintage painting, like this hand painted bridge, over it. Also, sold by Pieces of Time through Chairish
What home seating area wouldn’t be complete without a bar area. I truly like how this can double as space for your bar set and yet you can hide either books, papers (or the good stuff – lol), etc… in the other compartment
And of course you have to have a complete bar set.. !
A stylish space also has to have a stylish clock.. And these are making a great comeback (I clearly remember my parents had one of these in their bedroom.. ugggghhhh where is it!!???)
A sleek coffee table with a few accessories
Even the ashtrays were stylish back then..I don’t smoke but I’d sure have one just for show. And with all that light, I’d have to have a few plants and this planter is the perfect one
I know I probably chose the another decorative piece for the credenza, but being a GoT’er (Game of Thrones) I wanted to throw in the dragons.. (love their fierceness)
So with all these simple pieces – I created an eclectic seating area for myself.
I hope you enjoyed my imaginary design I created through Chairish. Hop over to the site, create one and share it with me.. I’d love to see what you create. Have fun, go forth and create.. Smooches!
