Mid-Century Modern design has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity in recent years, and one collection that captures the essence of this beloved aesthetic is the Wallace Collection from Couch Potatoes furniture store. With its retro charm, elegant arms, and individually-crafted wooden tapered legs, the Wallace Collection is a Mid-Century lover's dream.
As Aisha Sultan writes in her blog about the resurgence of mid-century modern furniture, "Its sleek, minimalist, clean and curved lines give it an enduring beauty, while its layered identities speak to the ethos of the era. It reflects a design style that carries across architecture, furniture and art." The Wallace Collection, above all else, is timeless, and carries across different interior design styles. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at this mid-century modern collection, its history, and why it remains a favorite among furniture lovers today.
How the Wallace Got Its Name
The story of how the Wallace got its name is about as simple as its shape. While most of our collections are named after locations in Austin, Texas, the Wallace predates our naming patterns. Originally, co-owner of Couch Potatoes, Dan, made the collection for a friend and wanted to name it after him. He accidentally named the file for the Wallace Collection after his friend's last name rather than his first name. The last name stuck, so everyone agreed to keep it as is.
Hand-sewn Tufted Buttons
The Wallace Collection is defined by its hand-sewn tufted buttons, which radiate a retro charm that echoes off the elegant arms and tapered wooden legs. The tufted buttons are an iconic feature of Mid-Century Modern design, and they add a touch of sophistication and elegance to the collection.
However, there is also the option to have the Wallace untufted. The untufted Wallace gives off a different sense of charm. A simple, sleek style that is smooth and uncomplicated to the touch.
Individually-Crafted Wooden Tapered Legs
The wooden tapered legs of the Wallace Collection are individually crafted and add a touch of warmth and natural beauty to the collection. The legs are slightly angled, which gives the collection a sense of dynamism and movement. They are also sturdy and provide excellent support for the collection's comfortable cushions.
One of the unique features of the Wallace Collection is its versatility. The Wallace Collection is able to work with a variety of design styles. Whether you prefer mid-century modern, traditional, or eclectic design, the Wallace Collection can fit seamlessly into your home.
In addition to its timeless design and expert craftsmanship, the Wallace Collection also offers customization options. Couch Potatoes furniture store offers a wide selection of fabric and leather options, so you can create a piece of furniture that is tailored to your exact specifications.
You can choose the perfect color and texture to match your home décor, ensuring that your Wallace Collection piece is not only beautiful but also uniquely yours.
