Mid-century Modern Defined

MCM is a style of furniture design that began after World War II and continued into the 1960's.  It refers to the look that was popular in the middle of the 20th century.  You might call it mod or retro, but I call it cool.  My parents had an orange vinyl chair that I would give teeth to have again... I've scoured my father's house looking for it and I've asked 10 times.... "Where's that chair?".  Somehow he can't remember it.  Really?  It was bright ORANGE?  Anyway, I finally got my hands on a replica and I'm trying to decide on a fabric for the cushions.  The first picture is a dead ringer!
