Your style is your style, whatever that style may be; to each his/her own.
However, from a "Comfort" point of view? Mid-Century Sofa's, were angular, stiff and not comfortable to 'lounge' on or 'curl up' on, and neither were the chairs. (Yes I am that old, that I remember).
Cottage, on the other hand, epitomizes comfort. Sofa's are 'lounge' worthy, (practically begging to be lounged upon) and chairs are curl up friendly.
Give me "Cottage Comfort" any day, over a Trendy Mid-Century. Just my Non-Trendy View.
