Amplify your Interior Spaces with Modern Accent and Lounge Chairs

Of all Mid-Century furniture types, the accent chair is by far the most widely known and sought out. Its widespread appeal is due in large part to the vast range of distinctive chairs produced by the masters of modern design. Though each held their own particular philosophy regarding utility and artistic intent, what unites these creatives is their shared belief that furniture could be made better.

Some imagined novel functions, as with Eero Aarnio’s iconic Ball Chair, designed to be a private “room within a room,” Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Chair, made to eliminate the “slum of legs” cluttering homes around the world, and the Le Corbusier Lounge Chair, envisioned as a supremely ergonomic “extension of our limbs.” Others, like the Eames Plastic Shell Chair and the Parsons Chair, aimed to fuse high art with industrial manufacture in order to imbue everyday objects with artistic value.

Pieces like the Harry Bertoia’s Diamond Lounge Chair and Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair expanded the conceptual and functional limits of construction materials, introducing elements like bent metal tubing and thin steel rods as viable design materials. Finally, the movement saw the purely ostentatious artistry of pieces like Arne Jacobson’s Egg Chair, made exclusively for the world’s first design hotel, the Radison SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
