for the love of mod

For many of us who love Midcentury Modern design, it was the furniture that first caught our eye. Somewhere along the line a crisp edged credenza or a Formica-topped kitchen table won us over, and nothing has been the same since. Be it the piece you scored at a flea market years ago, the coffee table lovingly handed down from Mom or the dream piece you saved up to buy—every piece of furniture has a story. By cleaning it up and giving it another home, you are inserting yourself into its story as a new chapter. Are you the chapter where a colorful Blenko collection gets displayed on a hutch’s shelf? How about the chapter where a table is reunited with its coordinating chairs? No matter what your chapter is, when we…

persistence pays off

Every spring I attend an outdoor antique fair held on a beautiful farm just south of Greensboro, North Carolina. It wasn’t until I got homethat I realized just how amazing of a find I hadscored. This market is always on my radar as the feeling of newness is in the air—flowers are blooming and dealers are buzzing with excitement, offering their new and fresh winter finds. As usual, the spring of 2010 did not disappoint. I scoured the grounds for hours, sifting through endless booths of antiques and along the way reminiscing with friends and dealers that I hadn’t seen over the winter. Just as I was getting ready to leave, I found what I would consider an incredible find—a pair of Herman Miller Rope Edge Fiberglass arm chairs. Feeling satisfied, I…

custom creation

Unlike most kitchen renovations, this one began at a charity auction, ultimately resulting in a functional kitchen with truly mod sensibilities. Homeowners George and Mary Campbell, along with their daughter Molly and dogs Poppy and Hazelnut, live in a 1957 ranch in the Blue Ridge neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Down to one functioning burner and wishing their kitchen better suited their lifestyle, they decided it was time to move forward with a fresh design. THE FINAL BURNER When George and Mary bought their midcentury home in 2007, it came with a somewhat original kitchen. “There was a wall where the peninsula is [with a] very small pocket door—the kitchen felt small and closed off from the rest of the house,” Mary says. The cabinets and car decking (also known as tongue and groove)…
