Mid Century Modern Furnishings and Design

Turning up more and more frequently in my finds are mid century modern selections with slender steel legs sometimes referred to as hairpin legs.  From lamps to tables to chairs to stools, I’ve seen the style show up in almost everything modern.  Well known furniture designers like Paul McCobb, Frederic Weinberg, Arthur Umanoff, and Knoll, to name a few, included this design element in some of their work but so did the  not so famous furniture manufacturing companies such as Daystrum Manufacturing, Wrought Iron Chair Corporation, Chromecraft and yes, Pier One.  What is similar to all of the pieces that these different designers and manufacturers produced is their minimalist feel.  And speaking for myself I believe that what the public shared from this modern styling of the time was the fun, the pop, and the cool of it all.
