Mid Century Bug

I have it- the mid century bug- that is!  I am usually into vintage and antique just a bit older than MCM style, but lately I have been crazy for some of the furniture styles.  I’d like to think that I am a good enough stylist to incorporate a bit of many styles to make an eclectic, yet cohesive home.  A few things that I am loving:

The Marcel Bruer Wassily leather lounge chairs are calling my name!

This Barwa lounger would be so comfy on a patio or in the backyard, even better if it wasn’t purple!

This guy would be perfect painted black and sitting next to my new-old patio set in the backyard.  Then I would have a place to lounge in the sun!  (I am actually really thinking about this one!)

This is my all time favorite couch.  I want one someday so bad I can smell the leather!  😉

I love these Platner style outdoor chairs.  Actually, I like anything wire mesh or Bertoia-esque. 

An a bit of an older note- I am still on a hurried hunt for a couple of these old style metal lawn chairs.  Ebay is a bit too pricey, so if anyone out there knows of any for sale…keep me posted!

Any style, any color, as long as they are similar to eachother, because I am going to paint them red anyway!

Also, do you notice a trend with me and chairs?  And currently with me and outdoor furniture?  I really need to expand what I look at! 😉

    Very cool finds! Of course, I already love this style, so it’s no big jump for me. I do need some cool MCM outdoor furniture….someday 🙂

    I know it’s been a couple of years since you posted the photo, but do you still have the barwa and if so, would you like to sell it? I grew up using one on my parents deck (’58-
    ’69) and found it to be very comfortable. Thanks, Mara

      There are links under the photos to show where they came from. I think that one was on ebay. Thanks for stopping in!
