So, you’re an adult now. You have a job, you earn your own income, you sleep whenever you want to sleep, and you get up whenever you want to get up (but preferably before 8 a.m., so you can get to work).
You also make your own furniture and design choices, but sometimes you don’t know where to start. Finding a particular style can be very hard for people who are just beginning to create their own living spaces.
Sometimes “adulting” takes most of your time, and that little window of leisure is occupied by other important tasks, so buying furniture is not something that’s on your mind.
How can the mid-century style help to improve your home life? Well, for starters, the mid-century modernist furniture movement is very broad, and has something for everyone.
Secondly, most of its key designers produced their creations with the future in mind, looking to make them timeless, and they succeeded. Take the Hans Wegner Papa Bear chair, for example.
This is one of the perks of being an adult. You should remember that it is not only about having individual and financial freedom, but also about being able to modify your space to your own needs (and kind of becoming a cool grandpa to your future grandchildren).
Much like the Eames Lounge chair or the Saarinen Womb chair, the Papa Bear is playing directly towards a feeling of maturity and grownup-ness. The classic upholstery reminds people of the chair their grandparents used to read the newspaper in the morning, or just relax after a long day at work. Getting yourself a quality mid-century furniture replica.
However, the classic feel of the Papa Bear is offset by its modernist inclinations, represented on the huge, extending sides, complete with the almost-flattened ottoman with handles.
This is a great chair for a young adult, full of responsibilities and joie de vivre. But if that’s just too intense a description for you, just think of this chair as a way to get your parents to think you’re a responsible person whenever they drop by for a visit.
There are many replicas you can get today, but Manhattan Home Design is offering some of the best, quality-wise. This one is selling for $1,486, and though that might look expensive, you might feel differently after looking at the “original” prices.
