We are big fans of the look of Younger Furniture’s Avenue 62 line of mid century style sofas, sectionals and chairs. According to Meredith Younger Spell, the Avenue 62 line has been doing well, now, the company has introduced the second generation of the line. The new generation of the line still has a mid century feel — but Meredith explained that they are going a bit more modern. Even with their somewhat more contemporary feel — these pieces could feel at home in a mid century living room.
Above: The Nico sofa in a soft buttery yellow… with clean lines, soft curves and tapered legs that feel very mid century.
Above: The Simon chair has a Hans Wegner “Papa Bear” chair vibe, for sure.
The Nelson sofa, above, has unusually placed arms. “Hmmmm,” says Pam, “looks kinda tippy to me. I’m not sure about this one.”
Above: Another look at the Nelson and it’s green color. That’s emerald green – Pantone’s current color of the year. This is a lovely color — a very versatile green that would work well in a room with warm wood paneling — or even knotty pine.
Above: Nelson sofa in cream. The upholstery seems very classic, a great neutral.Above: Nelson sofa in grey with metal legs — giving it a more modern look — although even “tippier” looking in this version. Hmmmm.
Above: The Velvet sectional. I’m not sure this is actually made of velvet — but it is a very nice modern sofa sectional that could be upholstered to suit in a mod 1960s or 1970s living room.
Mega thanks to Meredith Younger Spell for keeping us in the loop and sharing photos of the great new designs in the second generation of Avenue 62 and shots of their showroom at the Highpoint Furniture Market.
