Although I appreciate the traditional, decorative style of the home that my Mom designed for us growing up, it's not my preferred personal style as an adult. My Dad on the other hand is a Mid-Century Modern devotee; a type of design that I have learned to love. Eames, Le Corbusier, and Bertoia are a few Mid-Century designers that I have heard about for as long as I can remember.
After admiring my Dad's Le Corbusier Chaise Lounge for years, I finally got a Mid-Century piece of my own; an Eames molded armchair with dowel legs. I can easily say that it is currently my favorite piece of furniture. I am slowly browsing around for more Mid-Century favorites and look forward to incorporating them into my home one by one. I appreciate the clean lines and memorable shapes of this period of design, and love the recognizable character that they now have.
