Mid-Century Modern

A Marin County mid-century family home was a favorite project of 2019. With an open plan, this home has many seating, work and eating areas to decorate with the goal to create one uniform palette and living area. This layout was a  perfect space to integrate our custom sofas, new furniture with some stunning vintage pieces to achieve our rustic modern style for a Marin casual lifestyle.

Harrington Galleries would love to help you design anything from the perfect sofa to the best color palette for your home. Check out our sofa consultation blog for tips on how to get the best fit sofa for your home!

Bertoia Chairs  | Live Edge Coffee Table

The history of American mid-century modern furniture aligns with one remarkable date in  history, World War II.  So many designers were immigrants and refugees  from Europe and Eastern Europe who came to the United States due to the trauma of war.  They bought with  them amazing knowledge of  furniture and architecture history and the skills to build a new modern aesthetic to create Mid Century Modernism as we know it today.


The Bertoia chairs above are a prime example of this gift from the Italian Immigrant, Harry Bertoia. These chairs are still reproduced buy Knoll today and will always be called Bertoia Diamond chairs. Sculptor, furniture and jewelry designer, graphic artist and metalsmith, Harry Bertoia was one of the great cross-disciplinarians of 20th-century art and design and a central figure in American modernism. Among furniture aficionados he is known for the wire-lattice “Diamond” chair (and its variants such as the tall-backed “Bird” chair) designed for Knoll Inc. and first released in 1952.

Florence Knoll Table + Photo on Canvas

As a company that produced many of the most famous and iconic furniture designs of the 20th century, Knoll was a chief influence in the rise of modern design in the United States. Led by Florence Knoll, the firm would draw stellar talents such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen into its compass. Their work would help change the face of the American home and office.

Alemany 10/90 Down Sectional with Chaise 1/2

The Alemany Sectional Sofa with Chaise 1/2 in 10/90 Down

119″L x 30″H x 38″D Chaise is 65″ L
We used the Alemany sofa with a chaise 1/2 which is about 119″ long to give a very relaxed media room.  This sofa is a contemporary style but the textured mid century fabric gives it a retro vibe. Our exquisite mid century danish rug really sets the tone of the room and provides out color palette inspiration through our the house:  slate blue nave and golden brown undertones.  The Alemany is a low cocktail style sofa with wide arms and a defined structured base. This sofa is great for family room and we recommend the 10/90 down wrap upgrade for extra comfort and luxury for family TV nights.

Tip- chaise and 1/2 is about 8″ deeper than the standard chaise but gives an space for an extra person

Kitchen + Bar Stools

We spruced up the kitchen cabinets with a Benjamin Moore Hale Navy  to give it a modern look.  It flows with our browns, navy, coral color palette and the stainless steel and walnut finishes. A timeless classic, this deeply saturated shade of navy blue evokes rich maritime traditions and storied exploits at sea.

Our Pablo bar stools are from our Gingko Furniture popup.  These are the bar height 31″ height as opposed to the 26″ counter height.  Pablo Counter Stool is extremely comfortable–its substantial, padded seat feels much more like a dining chair than stool.  Decorative baseball stitching and black steel base complete the look and sold in pairs(2). We have many additional bar and counter stools options on our site and store

Tip – Make sure you measure your height to determine of you need bar  31″ or counter  26 ”  stool size!
