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.

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.

    We are very excited about the new Avenue 62 line from Younger Furniture. It fits our own personal style as well as our vintage store Lee Alex in Denver. Floor models should be in shortly.

    We purchased a Younger sofa at the beginning of this year and we LOVE it. It is extremely well made and very comfortable. We ended up going with a Customer’s Own Materials construction and providing a fabric we loved, but they do offer a lot of great fabric choices (we just had something specific in mind).

    We bought a Younger sectional at Somnia in Philly about 12 years ago. It was our first “adult” purchase (it was $1200). The Smith sectional on the website looks a lot like our current one, so I am guessing it is that one. Back then it was difficult to find any furniture that wasn’t huge and overstuffed. The sectional was a nice, reasonable size, efficient, and had tufted detail. It has now been 12 years and the darn thing has survived three young boys jumping on it incessantly, and a big dog. It has one long sitting cushion for each sectional component, and they are both more comfortable than our bed. In the time we have had our sectional we have had friends go through three ikea sofa sectionals. We also bought a Macy’s sofa about ten years ago, and the Younger has held up much better–the Macy’s has an indent in the center so you kind of slide to the center when you sit down. We are just now starting to look for a replacement, and have been so happy to see that others have “discovered” Younger. It is strange—we live two miles from the Room and Board outlet and various room and board stores but I couldn’t care less–we want another Younger. Hoping to find a retailer in the Minneapolis area or I may be traveling to Madison with a uhaul….
