Sneak preview: Younger Furniture Avenue 62 furniture and upholstery


We recently featured an exclusive sneak peek of the new sketches of Avenue 62 line from Younger Furniture. Now, Meredith Younger Spell, President of Younger Furniture, has sent us these latest sneak-preview shots featuring some of the actual designs including some of the fun patterns and solid upholstery choices that will be available in stores later this year.


From what I’ve seen so far, there will be a fun array of color choices as well as some sensible neutrals and bold patterns — this line has a little something for everyone. The shade of green fabric on the Harris sofa above is very similar to the original upholstery on my retro side chairs. Green is a very versatile color — in reality, a neutral — and this color looks to blend avocado with chartreuse. This color — like the very design of the Harris — could bridge any interior channeling the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Great color!




I’m really digging that yellow chair — it is so nice to have some bright upholstery options. Neutral pieces are always a smart choice, but the right colorful piece of furniture can really add the wow factor to your space — and this yellow Trudy chair wows me — big time.

The matching Lewis chair is also lovely — it would be fun to get the couch in a neutral color and put a punchy pattern or bright color on the matching chair.


Above: What a curvaceous grouping of furniture this is! The Edie chairs and curved bench look so inviting — I’d love to kick back and have a cocktail in one of those.




If you like smaller doses of fabric or color, the upholstery configuration on the Harper armless sofa shown above might be just the thing you’ve been searching for. Mostly neutral with contrasting funky patterned pillows — the perfect mix of mod and contemporary.

Meredith has promised to keep Pam and me updated with new pictures of the actual upholstered pieces from the Avenue 62 line as they become available — and we can’t wait to see what other fun patterns, textures and colors of upholstery fabric will be offered. We’ll keep you in the loop.

Until then, feel free to check out the Younger Furniture website.

      Made in the U.S.A., extremely high quality, super comfy, and absolutely gorgeous. While $1500 for a sofa is not chump change, compared to so many of the made-in-China-fall-apart-in-two-years sofas out there that are nearly as much, it’s a good deal. We view our Younger as an investment in American labor and the economy, as well as our home. My brother-in-law bought an $800 Corona from Macy’s and will likely need to replace it very soon (or live with a now uncomfortable sofa).

      In short: you get what you pay for.

    What’s wrong with me? I’m not digging these. In general, evocative of MCM, however they feel like a contempo compromise — soft, tufted, curves on the Harris, complete with the detailing on the front. If you replaced the legs on these items you might find something similiar in any Lazy Boy showroom. I just wish someone would make MCM furniture with conviction and set it at an affordable price.

    Alright, I’ll take my negative energy elsewhere 🙂

    I’m very much hoping that the second-to-last sofa isn’t the only style in this line that is NOT a pillow-back, which, in our experience, does not hold up well at all.

  3. Lauryn says:

    Oh my, I love that Edie chair. Our decor leans more to the 1940s, so not sure it would work, but might be able to put it up in our attic studio. They just look so fabulous and comfy!!

  4. Hi Everyone and thank you for all the love!! Please put in the nearest major city on our dealer locator. We have lots of great partners in Chicago listed! Also, prices for sofas will range from about $1299-1799… depending on fabric choice. Can’t wait for Avenue 62 to hit stores!! Thank you Pam for your support!!

    1. Lynne says:

      Oh, wow! Those prices are totally do-able! Meredith, do you only do upholstered pieces? Will we see tables, and case goods to go with?

    2. MikeD says:

      Price points on the chairs?

      Have a chair purchase I have been wanting to make for a while. When I saw the first round of info come across retrorenovation.com on this Avenue 62 line I decided to wait and check these out before I purchased

    3. Lauryn says:

      Meredith, just want to personally thank you for making such wonderful furniture. Found out about you through Pam, bought a Mikel sofa (sight unseen) and couldn’t be happier with it! So unbelievably well built, absolutely gorgeous, and incredibly comfy. And made in the USA! We are SO happy with our purchase and look forward to buying more some day!
