summertime lovin’

WHAT WAS THE FIRST PIECE OF MIDCENTURY FURNITURE YOU PURCHASED? For me, it was my turquoise vinyl-upholstered footstool with tapered legs. While wandering a thrift shop looking for a vintage end table I spotted its bright upholstery—it was just barely peeking out from beneath a pile of boxes. The little tear where the piping had pulled away didn’t bother me because I was so entranced by the looping design imprinted on its top. Despite not being what I had set out for, at just $12 I knew it needed to come home with me. Since that day, it’s bounced all over my house. For a while it sat in front of my arm chair and made for an idyllic reading corner—but I can’t seem to let it stay in one place…

it’s up to you

By George Smart MODERNIST HOUSES FROM THE 1950S AND '60S ARE IN NEARLY EVERY CITY WITH A POPULATION OVER 200,000. We hear the most about larger Modernist communities like Los Angeles and Palm Springs, but there are many more scattered across the United States. In your own town, there’s possibly a dozen modernist houses, and if you are a true fan, you’ve likely heard or inquired about the architects. “Surely,” you think, “the local preservation society has researched these houses and their creators.” You call—and typically you find the society prefers cottages, mill and Victorian houses, and old churches, among other structures that wouldn't host butterfly chairs. “Modernist houses still look ahead of their time,” the society says, “so how could they be considered historical or worth preserving?” Maybe it’s time to talk…

remaking history

AT ITS HEIGHT, MIDCENTURY STYLE CAPTIVATED AMERICANS AS THE PREVAILING CHOICE FOR DESIGN-FORWARD HOMES. The mid mod look is once again sought after and appreciated by a new generation of enthusiasts who pay careful attention to period details and authentic elements. Some, such as the owners of this 1961 Joseph Eichler-built home, feel drawn to an honest representation of the style not just for aesthetic reasons, but also because of a personal connection. The mother of one of the homeowners grew up in an Eichler house, and they wanted to bring that nostalgia into their own home.
