Mid century modern sofas, sectionals and chairs — Made in the U.S.A. by Younger Furniture

mid-century-style-sofa-and-loveseat-younger-furnitureIn yesterday’s story about Dave and Kristin’s fabulous mid-century living room, we got our first peek at some mid-century modern style sofa and chairs from Younger Furniture. Dave also mentioned this furniture was made in the U.S. — a big “want” of many readers. So, I jumped online to take a look at the whole line of furniture — and it looks great. Above: The ala Dick van Dyke line, just recently introduced.  tufted-single-back-sofa-younger-furniture

There is a good selection of mid-century modern styles — with a variety of backs, arms and seat cushion variations to choose from. Importantly: The scale appears to be right! Look at the measurements for each piece — they are not oversized… no 40″ seats or backs. They are long and low and compact — just like our mid century jewel box houses.

There are sectionals.

The “lounge” seems to be a de rigeur design feature, these days.

And chairs. Lots to choose from, actually.

small upholstered barrel chairI really quite like little upholstered pieces like this. Reminds me of my orange chairs:

1960s orange chairs

club chair

I especially really like this cute little club chair, with rolled arms, pleated skirt and soft cushion back. It’s waaaay mid-century – modest — not modern!

And upholstered headboards.

The Younger Furniture website describes the company, saying: “After working in the furniture industry for 20 years, Mike Younger founded Younger Furniture in 1989. Since the day Mike opened the doors, Younger has been commited to making high quality custom furniture from start to finish in North Carolina. Younger is dedicated to creating style, quality and comfort in the form of furniture.” No prices are listed online — but there is good navigation that gets you right to retailers in your area.

    Yes they are comfortably firm, you sit on them rather than in them. Just was introduced to Younger today and was very impressed with their style, comfort, and value.

    I am currently trying to find a specific Younger sofa to sit on and try out, but the only place in my state that carries that brand, only has 1 style in stock. One I don’t like. I’m considering ordering one without having first tried it, but am terrified to do so.

    Is there anyone here who can give their testimonial as to the quality and comfort (this being key) to their Younger sofa? Like…maybe months or a year after purchasing?

    Including the model # you bought would be helpful as well. 🙂

    I ordered the “Miller” sectional from Younger last week. It is the 4th sofa from the top. Can’t wait to get it. We tried out the “apartment” version, which is the Haviland, and we were really impressed. I’ve tried and tried to find stuff but there really is nothing like it for the same price. Not to mention the fact that it’s made here in the US. Can’t beat that!

    I *think* I’ve got a Younger couch and chair, the Michael collection, that I bought from Design Within Reach maybe 6(+) years ago when there was more money. The cushion on my couch isn’t quite as puffy as the pics, but the chair cushion is well lofted. I absolutely love the chair and sofa, but I’m admittedly gentle with my furniture and I don’t let my boys jump on them. I know Macy’s has a line very similar to the Michael collection.

    Re: the Milano sectional from Macy’s – we bought ours in 2010, and the cushions started breaking down after a year of regular use. My partner and I are not “big” guys, but the cheap polyfoam cushions cannot take regular use. Worse, they can’t be removed or flipped over (or replaced), giving the whole couch a much shorter lifespan than what I would have wanted for the $1800 we spent on it.

    The next couch we get will be made in America & have removable cushions.
