Searching for beautiful, affordable furniture for your home or office in the mid-century modern style? Look no further than Blu Dot Furniture.
Although Blu Dot is a modern company with original designs, you will find that they are evocative of the best of mid-century design. Blu Dot Furniture was founded in 1997 by a trio of friends looking to fill a gap in the furniture market for modern designs which were at once beautiful and affordable.
Uniting their professional knowledge in the fields of architecture and sculpture, they built Blue Dot Furniture into a successful company with a global customer base.
Describing their principles, Blu Dot writes:
“Our goal is to bring good design to as many people as possible. That means creating products that are useful, affordable, and desirable. To make that happen, our design process is founded on collaboration … We like to think that the form is almost inevitable, a by-product of the process. Our job is simply to help it emerge as beautifully and as efficiently as possible.”
Why Choose Furnishings from Blu Dot?
- This company handles every aspect of design and manufacture. The result is that each product is fully and beautifully realized from the drawing board to your home.
- Blu Dot puts an emphasis on quality over quantity. Their selection is not enormous, but every furnishing in it was designed with the utmost care.
Blu Dot explains, “Who really needs 40 sofa designs to choose from? Can they all be good? Our goal is to design pieces that endure. Some of our most popular pieces today were part of our first collection created almost 20 years ago.”
In short, these pieces are built to be classics and to stand the test of time, both literally and figuratively.
Blu Dot Furnishings to Consider
Now that you know more about Blu Dot as a company, let’s check out some of their beautiful mid-century modern-inspired designs.
Blu Dot One Night Stand Sleeper Sofa
You know how usually you can recognize sleeper sofas in a heartbeat?
Let’s face it—the average sleeper sofa is designed for function, but not for style. What if a sleeper sofa could look just like a regular couch? Well, maybe not a regular couch. There is nothing ordinary about the Blu Dot One Night Stand Sleeper Sofa.
This stylish sofa sits low to the ground on a minimalist base of brushed stainless steel. Featuring strong horizontal lines, it includes a set of accent pillows and is available in four colors: Craig Red, Craig Sand, Edwards Navy and Edwards Light Grey.
What is smart about this design is that the back cushions not only play their part in evoking a mid-century modern aesthetic, but they also serve the function of concealing the “sleeper” aspect of the sleeper sofa. You can remove the cushions and convert the sofa into a queen-sized bed to accommodate guests. You can bet they will be surprised when you do!
Blu Dot Field Velvet Lounge Chair
This chair is somewhat evocative of the Womb Chair by Eero Saarinen, but it is a distinctive design all its own. Supported by a powder-coated steel base, the chair is available with Moss Velvet or Storm Velvet upholstery. Both are neutral shades that can blend well in any interior.
The arms of the chair curve up naturally from the seat and are also one with the back, providing a rounded, spacious, cushioned seat on which to recline. To ensure adequate back support, your purchase includes a lumbar pillow stuffed with down. Down conforms well to the shape of your back, providing firm, adjustable support where you need it most.
Blu Dot Circula Large Coffee Table
This striking table is made out of powder-coated aluminum, and is available in four neutral colors: White, Oyster, Grey Green and Oblivion. Its shape is somewhat similar to a hat which has been turned upside-down. Needless to say, it can hold your coffee table books, but they’re not going to be the conversational piece. This sleek and eye-catching minimalist table is going to have that honor all to itself.
Blu Dot Hot Mesh Lounge Chair
If you want to add a touch of mid-century modern flair to your lawn and garden, consider the Blu Dot Hot Mesh Lounge Chair. With its stamped metal pattern, organic lines, and gentle recline, it is the comfortable and stylish way to kick back. Since it is made of metal mesh, it also stays cool and well-ventilated, perfect for hot days on the patio
