With the New Year now in full swing, many people will be making their resolutions and setting out their goals for the year. If it’s your intention to rejuvenate the look and feel of your home in 2013 then you’re in luck because there are some fantastic pieces of designer furniture which will be perfect for the job.

This year is set to be big for contemporary furniture based on the designs of iconic names in interior design such as Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen and Arne Jacobsen. These are all powerhouses in the world of furniture design and despite many of their pieces being designed over half a century ago, they are still just as relevant for today’s interior design enthusiasts.

Let’s take a look at some inspirational pieces of designer furniture that will help bring your property to life in 2013:


There are many iconic pieces of Charles Eames furniture but there are few as eye-catching and luxurious as the stunning lounge chair and ottoman pictured above. If you’re looking for a stylish piece of furniture for a living room or study and want something that looks like its stepped straight off the set of Mad Men, then you’ll be ticking all the right boxes with this fantastically crafted and superbly comfortable Charles Eames lounge chair and ottoman.

Mies Van Der Rohe Furniture:

Another huge name in the world of furniture design is that of Mies Van Der Rohe who was responsible for some truly timeless pieces such as the simplistic yet striking Barcelona sofa above. This great piece of designer furniture is perfectly suited to contemporary apartments and homes and will look fantastic in loft style properties with exposed brickwork. There were various different pieces with Mies Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona collection of furniture including day beds and benches.

Hans Wegner Furniture:

Hans Wegner

When it comes to modern furniture for your home, Hans Wegner is a name that should be on the tip of your tongue because he designed some unusually contemporary pieces of designer furniture such as the breath taking Hans Wegner Shell Chair pictured. He was one of a select group of designers operating in the 20th Century who truly revolutionised the industry and his pieces are timeless classics that defined the way that many designers approach their furniture creations today.

In many ways, interior design today is a case of going back to the future because so many of the designers who we choose to decorate our homes, like Eames, Wegner, Saarinen, were at their pomp in the mid-20th Century and it is testament to the quality of their design and the impression vision of the furniture designers that these pieces are still the pieces that we gravitate towards when it comes to kitting out contemporary homes.
