Focus on Great Design
An unusual coffee table makes for a showstopping focal point in the living room and can help unify multiple styles of furniture, such as a sleek white sofa and vintage-style stools and chairs. Try a distinctive shape like this one, or pick a table with a sculptural bottom—such as splay legs or an architectural base—for a more subtly retro style.
Try Distinctive Shapes
Pieces with unexpected silhouettes add instant mod flavor to a room. We like retro-style wing chairs, which are as comfortable for lounging as they are great-looking. You can pair a curvy armchair with side tables in similarly groovy, amoebalike shapes.
Think Function and Form
Whether your bedroom is small or spacious, a midcentury-style sideboard is worth the real estate: It provides extra storage and a display surface for art and objects, and its streamlined good looks immediately beckon the eye. Choose a sideboard in polished walnut or teak for a gorgeous grainy look and extra cozy appeal.
