Interiors Trend: 5 Mid-Century Modern Style Statement Chairs

Looking for that perfect piece to complete your living room? It’s all about the statement chair, and here are five of the hottest pieces right now, from elegant cocktails chairs to warehouse-chic industrial pieces

Mid-century style has long been a popular interior design trend and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere just yet. While some may opt for vintage pieces, it’s modern furniture that is big right now, particularly statement chairs.

Mixing bold detailing, plush fabrics and, of course, functionality is key. Not only is it about creating a centrepiece for a living room, bedroom or even an office, but it’s important to create a space in which you can relax, too..

Looking good and feeling just as great, these five mid-century chairs are equally as opulent in their look, but their styles couldn’t be more diverse.
