Suddenly I realize that in the English language “Mid Century Chair” is ment for the 19 40ies 50ies and 60ies. Vintage in Dutch is usually used for the same period, but Vintage in English – according to Google at least – seems to be ment for earlier periods…

Nevertheless, the above embedded Flickr photo shows an interesting re-interpretation of a Marshmallow Sofa by George Nelson, albeit one of the commenters to the photo mentions Irving Harper of George Nelson Studio as the one who deserves the credit
