Frequently Asked Questions

How do you define mid-century lounge furniture?

Mid-century living room furniture can be defined by a few main elements. Clean lines and open shapes define a lot of the pieces — chairs and sofas are especially simple in their designs. Mid-century style designers reduced ornate furniture back to their most basic forms, using natural wood and tapered silhouettes. Our collection of mid-century living room furniture features beech, oak, teak, rosewood and elm. In homewares, wood and glass combine to reflect and refract light, and natural forms display organic shapes and flowing forms. 

What kind of mid-century design living room furniture do you have?

In our mid-century lounge furniture collection, you’ll find a range of sofas, open side armchairs, ottomans, coffee tables, entertainment units, furnishings and more. Our range is sourced from a variety of Australian made and globally renowned international producers, all of whom specialise in elegant mid-century modern styles which work beautifully in light-filled Australian living and lounge rooms.

What are the typical features of a mid-century living room?

The beauty of mid-century modern is that the pieces of furniture are strong and speak for themselves, but are simple enough to suit a variety of personal styling preferences. The best mid-century inspired lounges lean into functionality and organic shapes, they look great in simple, bright surroundings and feel unpretentious. A great way to achieve a harmonious living room with a mid-century feel is to choose a few vibrant colours, embracing vibrant shades but keeping your palette restricted for a sophisticated yet cosy finish.
