a tale of two kitchens

The Collector’s Kitchen photography Marcia Prentice Insurance VP Bruce Rockwell and his wife, Emily, an attorney, spent 15 years in their 1955 home before tackling a kitchen upgrade. “We had lived in the house long enough to know that the layout was quite functional and didn’t need to be significantly changed,” he says. “The kitchen cabinets were falling apart and the appliances needed upgrading. We knew nothing about midcentury modern design before moving in, but I did a lot of research in time for the kitchen redo in 2013.” The couple live around the corner from Case Study House #10 in Pasadena, Calif., and they spied a construction sign for Design Vidal when walking their German shepherd past the property. “I thought that they must know midcentury modern, so I visited their website…

historical record

Arapahoe Acres, a 124-home development in Englewood, Colo., was designed and built by Edward Hawkins and Eugene Sternberg between 1949 and 1957. Its architecture reflects the International and Usonian styles, and in 1998 it became the first postwar subdivision to be listed on the National Register. The vision of Arapahoe Acres was to attract a diverse community of varying family sizes and economic status. Houses range in size from 800 square feet to 2,300 and, though all share a midcentury modern aesthetic, no home is exactly alike. The streets follow the grade of the land, winding and curving. Much of the landscaping has a strong Japanese influence, and many of the shrubs and trees are carefully sculpted to complement the austere nature of the architecture. I purchased my 1951 house as a…

more wisdom

I’m 15 years old and a big fan of the magazine. I have always been interested in art, and about a year ago I became hooked on midcentury modern design. At first I was obsessed in particular with the works of Charles and Ray Eames. Since then I have been researching and scouting for MCM design and furniture, and I stumbled upon your magazine. I think my personal style is a mix of midcentury modern and ‘today’ modern; I thought you might like to see some pictures of my space that I designed. In the corner next to the bed there is a small reading nook that consists of two floating IKEA shelf units, an old trunk that was used by my father, a George Nelson Ball Clock replica and an…
