Having two recliners in the room is challenging. With this layout the one recliner was too close and angled away from being able to see the tv so it really didn't work all that well. The behemoth tv. hard to make it look good. I set some decorating books and book boxes down below. The round things are speakers and the sub-woofer is at the bottom. I have skinny stands for the speakers which really gives it an ultra modern look. We used to have huge speakers on the sides but I got hubby to remove them a couple of years ago. One of these days we may change the tv stand to an all wood one with doors at the bottom. This glass/metal one was a special order and works real well but It does give off a pretty modern vibe that doesn't go all that well with the room. I love those mirrors by the grandfather's clock. I love how you play the items you have to achieve the look you want. I can't remember when I've seen your entire Living Room, dear friend. I adore how you've blended in the recliners with your couch and swivel rocker. Your TV looks fine. as I battle with the large stereo speakers in our living room.

And much to my surprise I was able to find some images of Mid-Century Modern interiors that I actually like. Don't get me wrong, there are some really bad Mid-Century interiors out there but that is true of all styles. Mid-century modern furniture is best demonstrated by the iconic pieces that showcase beautiful lines, such as this white Eames Lounger. I can see myself doing something like this in an 18th century French home with beautiful white carved paneling. I like the element of the clean lines of Mid-Century Modern meets heavy ornamentation. The chair and its modern lines and was often considered "space age" because of its futuristic use of curves and artificial materials. There are good reproductions on the market but if you must have an original Mid-Century Modern Saarinen Tulip chair be sure to look for the Knoll logo on the.
