Carlo Mid-Century Collection

Like other modern style furniture, the Carlo Mid-Century Collection pieces feature the unmistakable form of modernist living room seating, such as streamlined profiles, strong geometric angles and visually light yet stylish design. What makes the Carlo Mid-Century Collection distinctive from our other modern upholstered seating offerings is its Italian-inspired contour, angled arms and backrests with a slight pitch. Despite its sleek profile, this collection may also surprise you with its plush cushions that give you the same sink-right-in comfort of its bulkier contemporary upholstered seating counterpart. These cushions, however, sit snugly within its modern frame, which means that as it delivers plush comfort, it does so without the accompanying bulk. The Carlo Mid-Century Collection can either provide you with inspiration for your next redesign project to build upon or complement your existing modern theme.


In line with the minimalist principles of modern furniture, the Carlo Mid-Century Collection pieces possess sleek profiles that make your living room appear roomier. This makes this upholstered seating collection an ideal for you if you want to make your living room area appear to have more space and not feel cramped while enjoying luxurious seating at the same time. You can achieve this look and accompanying comfort even if you have limited living room space with sofas or maintain the balance if you have a larger living room with the Carlo Mid-Century Collection sectionals. The chairs in this collection also come in handy, both as functional seats as well as accent furniture not only for your living room but also in other rooms, such as your study, game room or bedroom.


As with other west elm sofas, this type of upholstered seating in the Carlo Mid-Century Collection is among the easiest to work with when planning your layout for your living room. Sofas are at home in small living room areas and more than just make the room appear cozier, the collection also brings stylish elegance to the room. The versatility of sofas also allows you to have it as one of your centerpieces even if you have an average or large-sized living room if you pair with other upholstered seating, such as ottomans and chairs, and with chaises to fill up larger spaces. Having several upholstered seating in your living room not only serves to accommodate more persons but it also creates more separation to your layout, thus giving you more visual texture in your overall decor.


However, sectionals are ideally your first choice if you have a large living room floor area. These types of large upholstered seating are a terrific choice for a large family who loves to lounge about and for entertaining guests. If you plan on purchasing a sectional, it is best to familiarize yourself with a few simple terminologies that go with every piece. Sectionals come in several configurations including L-shaped, U-shaped and symmetrical. All of these determine the amount of space that the sectional will take up, as well as the layout of your living room seating.


Before making the purchase, regardless of which of the Carlo Mid-Century pieces you wish to purchase, it best to take measurements of the space where you plan on setting up the furniture. Make sure to account for the amount of free space that you need around the furniture that you require. Once you have these measurements, check the dimensions of the pieces to ensure that they fit into the space just the way you want them to. The Carlo Mid-Century Collection pieces also come with a host of different choices for upholstery fabric color and weave. This enables you to modify the look of your choice to complement your existing decor better.
