The mid-century modern style is amongst Millennial’s favorite interior design styles, and it is fairly easy to understand why. Mid-century interior designs make us travel to sunny Palm Springs, where the feeling is that of a blissed nostalgia.

And there are at least 7 mid-century armchairs that can bring that Palm Springs feeling into your home right away. Want to get to know them?
Inspired by the seductive movements of the iconic movie star Marilyn Monroe, this crescent accent chair is an elegant and retro chic piece of furniture inspired by the 60’s design legacy.

Named after Dorothy Dandridge, the first African-American actress to be nominated for an Oscar, this armchair uses the same name and grandeur it exudes, having two accent armrests that pay hommage to her career uprising.
