Many of the iconic original Mid-Century Modern furniture pieces that interior designers and enthusiasts covet are now valuable collectibles, with some even appearing in prestigious museum collections. The scarcity of these pieces combined with high ticket prices make it difficult for everyday design enthusiasts to bring original Mid-Century Modern pieces into their own homes. The good news? There are several high-quality furniture companies that produce remarkable Mid-Mod reproductions – at more attainable price points. What’s more, these brands often feature a broad variety of styles, patterns, and colors to choose from making it easier to assimilate a Mid-Mod piece or two into your home without requiring a complete home makeover.


The online retailer Modterior is a wonderful place to start when looking for those instantly recognizable Mid-Century Modern showstoppers. From statement lounge chairs to sculpture-like lighting, their selection is immense.

The wildly popular “Egg Chairs” many people first think of when it comes to the style of the ‘60s and ‘70s are available at Modterior. (Many instantly recognize these chairs from one of the early scenes of the first Men in Black film!) A bit on the more eccentric side of Mid-Century Modern design, they were first introduced in 1958 by designer Arne Jacobsen and eight years later they were more literally reimagined by Eero Aarnio. Jacobsen’s Egg Chair had an eye-catching ergonomic shape that flared at the top, reminiscent of past-era wing-back chairs, but with more of a modern spin.

Modterior offers these chairs in a range of different colors, along with material options to suit your preference – from wool to leather and much more in between.

Joybird is a great retailer for those looking for larger furniture pieces with the Mid-Century Modern aesthetic. They have a large selection of sofas and sectionals to choose from that are great alternatives for the Mid-Mod look of the post-war era. To make Mid-Mod furniture shopping easier, the Joybird website has a convenient furniture “sort” feature where one can select to show only Mid-Century Modern pieces.

If you are a fan of the low-sitting modular couches, Joybird has many different styles to choose from and most are easily customized to fit your style, taste and space. The angular, yet comfortable, Adrian Pearsall couches seen in many Mid-Century Modern home photos are not easy to find, but Joybird has many choices inspired by that specific look to choose from. The Eastwood sofa (pictured below) is a beautiful choice – and is available in over 70 different color and material choices.

Along with Joybird’s large selection of couches, they also carry a nice selection of Mid-Century Modern dressers, bed frames, desks, dining sets, and even bar carts. The wide variety of available pieces provides plenty of options for designing your space exactly to your taste.

Modholic is another amazing option for iconic pieces inspired by famous Mid-Mod designers. And, if you’re a fan of the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair, Modholic has you covered. Their version of the Barcelona Chair does not stray far from the classic – complete with black or white Italian leather and supported by chrome-like stainless steel. Other Modholic chair options include the Womb Chair and Ottoman, designed by Eero Saarinen; the Shell Chair by Hans Wegner;  solid and wire Bertoia-style chairs – and even a nice collection of Egg Chairs.

Another signature piece at Modholic is the classic triangular glass and polished wood coffee table, first designed by Isamu Noguchi and introduced to the public in 1947 by Herman Miller. These classic Mid-Century Modern coffee tables effortlessly pair two contrasting materials together resulting in what appears very much as an organic, natural shape. The function-meets-sculpture appearance of these coffee tables made them wildly popular when they were first released – and they still remain highly popular today!
