If you’re looking to begin collecting Mid Century Modern Design, it all starts with the chair. Whether it’s the iconic Eames Loungers or shell chairs, an Eero Saarinen piece, Arne Jacobsen’s sculptural Ant Chair or groups of chairs from luminaries like Thonet, chairs are your best bet to make a statement.
As the Mid Century Modern school ascended after World War II, a lack of materials led to the extensive use of shaped plywood, which would be molded by heating and steaming the material into a certain shape. This process became popular and led to the boom in Denmark, Germany and the United States. Chair designs by Wegner, Jalk, Mogensen, Kjaerhorn and Gammelgaard came to the fore and incorporated polished metal and plastic.
