Mid-century Living Room Furniture


Midcentury living is more than a design style, it's a lifestyle. Those who enjoy this modern approach to decor, appreciate the form and function found in our Mid-century Living Room Furniture Collection. Born in Europe circa 1930s, midcentury modern design remains one of the most popular interior design styles. Our selection of Mid-century Living Room Furniture at west elm has everything you need to create a space for classic modern living.


Whether you're inspired by a 1960s sitcom or vintage music album cover, the key to creating the perfect midcentury living space is to capture the essence of retro sleek. The goal is to evoke nostalgia while remaining firmly in today. Start with a sofa. Get customizable flexibility with in-stock convenience. Our sofas and sectionals come with an array of upholstery, legs and pillow options. Sectionals are available in L-shape or with optional chaise. Select seating to fit your taste and comfort level. Consider the type of cushion you prefer as well as the upholstery. Velvet, twill, leather and basket weave are among the fabric selections. You also have the option of choosing tapered, coned, straight, metal or block legs. Additional details, such as button-tufted back pillows or pecan-stained wood legs, are available options. Sizes range from studio-ready love seats to large sectionals suitable for the most elegant living rooms.


Complement the sofa with occasional chairs. Depending on your space, you could position two armchairs opposite the sofa. Recliners, library and wing chairs in leather could offer a contrast to a bright-colored fabric on a sofa. Wood chairs with distinctive Danish influence work well anywhere in a midcentury-inspired living room. If you'd like additional seating but lack space, consider a midcentury dining chair. Side chairs are available in many of the same finishes and fabrics as the sofas.


Bring warmth and a sense of midcentury architecture with wood tables. Ovals and rectangular coffee tables provide a linear look to a living room. Large square tables may appear to anchor a space and bring a sense of cohesion to several upholstered pieces. Nesting tables, clover and pop-up tables add a more casual mood to a room. Place a similarly styled and finished console table in an entrance visible from the living room. Long consoles or media storage tables or credenzas can serve as storage or room dividers in large open floor plans. Although many of these consoles look like a throwback to a bygone era, they can accommodate all the technology available in the digital age. That's the beauty of our Mid-century Living Room Furniture. You get yesteryear-style ambience with modern-day accouterments.
