Any space is not complete without a comfy, stylish mid century modern lounge chair to snuggle in. Even if this era brought many design icons, not all of them were comfy. Since minimalism was in back then, furniture designers stripped items to their bare essentials. They flaunted their industrial origins instead of hiding their manufacturing ways.
Even if this gave us icons like the Bertoia Diamond Chair, many of them didn’t have a cozy look. Who would imagine snuggling in a chair made out of wire? Here are three comfy lounge chairs embodying mid century modern era:

It would be impossible to talk about mid century modern lounge chairs without mentioning the comfy Eames La Chaise. The contrast between the shiny fiberglass body, stainless steel legs and criss-cross wood base is simply timeless. The two outstretched sides doublings as armrests make for a truly unique sitting experience.
Eero Saarinen, mastermind behind the iconic Tulip Table, was inspired to design this enveloping lounge chair thanks to Florence Knoll’s need for informal seating. It was named Womb Chair due to the way users can curl up in it. The steel legs display its industrial origins, though its organic curves are highly inviting.
Danish designer Hans Wegner was known worldwide for his minimalist furnishings like the Shell Chair. This chair effortlessly merges the lightness and comfort of organic modernism. Its lightness is achieved with its signature curved back and wing-like seat created from upholstered Aniline leather. The result? Utmost comfort!
