Great ideas then, Great ideas now
Art, specifically furniture, has advanced over the past 50 years. Greatly. However, there seems to be a sentiment in the US that makes us want to go back to those retro 1950s chairs that lets face it, aren't very comfortable. However, when someone chooses new furniture they have to make a decision. What is more important: Style or comfort?
From where I stand, I think most modern furniture is ugly. 1950s ideas in furniture were prime, and that's why they still stand.
It's a choice you have to make with a lot of things, to be honest. In my opinion, style is more important to an extent. There are circumstances where comfort does take priority, and I guess it is just a matter of individual situations.
