Mid-Century Fans Will Love Julianne Moore’s Living Room
Actress Julianne Moore has quite an eye for design. Moore posted a snapshot of her living room and posted it on Instagram back in September, and her impressive collection of modernist furniture and decor makes her space look like a curated showroom — though, a showroom you wouldn’t have a hard time getting comfy in.
The first thing that stands out in Moore’s post is her set of Martin Eisler Costela (which translates to “rib”) chairs. Designed by Eisler in 1953, these chairs are casual, yet striking in their design with the eight Brazilian Imbuia wood slats and curved stainless steel frame.
Moore’s are upholstered in black leather and feature slimmer cushions than those often paired with Costela chairs.
She paired her set of Costelas with a 1950s side table from Carl Auböck. Auböck used natural wood slabs as tabletops, adding iconic mid-century brass legs and rubber feet to give the trunk slabs a leg up.
The naturally-shaped Auböck table matches perfectly with Moore’s Nakashima coffee table, which is also crafted out of a natural plank of wood. Nakashima designs date back to the 1940s and each new piece is made to order.
And it’s hard not to notice the whimsical Noguchi paper lantern in the far left corner of Moore’s living space. Noguchi’s pieces, which he called Akari, were first crafted by the artist himself back in 1951, and are still produced today.
Moore has previously shown off her Charlotte Perriand wall unit, thus proving that Moore is the queen of mid-century furniture collecting.
Looks like there’s a new interior design icon to worship.
