Modern Wood Furniture
by John Linden
Danish Modern has been on my mind these past few weeks. I've been obsessed, looking for the best Modern woodwork I can find stateside. In the past, I've worked with a few overseas vendors -- with vary success. Still, I figured that there must be some great stuff that's not an ocean away...here's the result.
Brooklyn based furniture maker with a board collection, including lights, chairs, and seating. Overall, the collection has a Danish modern feel, but the style is, I must say, very unique.
A client of mine turned me on to this site, and I keep it bookmarked to see when they release a new piece. Very beautiful. See them at www.volkfurniture.com
Another New York based design firm, Lani, the designer, has this awesome collection of side tables. Check out the website and you will see what I mean, but they are very unique -- and have so much character -- that they wouldn't work in any interior.
That said, in the right space, these would be so perfect.
The Future Perfect
A furniture collection from Modern, European, and American designers. They include many well known (and not so well known) designers. The entire collection is excellent. If you are an interior designer -- or you just love furniture -- you will fall in love. www.thefutureperfect.com
Could not resist including this find here: California's own, this SF shop sells decorative tiles for interior and (I think) exteriors. The styling and design is out of this world. I don't know if they work nationally, but if you are having tile work done in your home check them out. www.cletile.com
A fun one to finish -- Pillows and blankets with a Modern and whimsical vibe. The pattern pieces are great because they have both a midcentury look and color palette. These would be great for a child's room or guest bedroom where you want to indulge in a Modern look. www.dittohouse.com
Where does the time go? Felt like Summer just yesterday. O well!! Hope everyone is having a happy fall. MirrorCoop has a ton of great project right now, which I am very thankful for. Wishing everyone peace of mind and health through the next few months.
Best as always
