We are always pleasantly surprised when Real Living readers decorate their own homes! Working on your own place is a great way to unleash your creativity, personalize your space, and bring your loved ones together!

Homeowners Val and Arlene Castaneda filled their 183sqm property in Taguig with mid-century modern pieces, including chairs inspired by mid-century designers Charles and Ray Eames.

If you love these chairs as much as we do, here are 4 accent chairs worth considering:

This lounge-and-ottoman set from 1956 was first used as an office seat! You can now use it as a statement chair in your living area.

If you want something more simple, you can consider the LCW, which means “Low Chair Wood.” This chair was first made using molded plywood at the onset of World War II.

The Molded Eiffel Chair is one of the most popular Eames chairs! You can use this as a dining chair or an office seat.

The walnut stool can be used as a seat or a side table! We love the rich color and the graceful curves.
