Era Ode

February 23, 2015

The 1970s is quite possibly my favorite decade - it was just so cool and sexy. I love the furniture, the fashion, the music, the dancing... all of it.

Modernism Week

February 16, 2015

Palm Springs Modernism Week is upon us. Although I'm not attending, it feels like an invitation to remember the work of some of my favorite architects, artists and designers.  In the words of Ezra Pound, "Make it new!"

Form and Volume

February 02, 2015

French designer Pierre Guariche was said to have been motivated primarily by form, quality, and volume in his furniture designs. In the 1950s he became the designer behind Belgian company Muerop where he was able to create clean, elegant pieces that were industrially produced and accessible. Although he is best remembered for his lighting, his leather G1 chairs are a favorite of mine, and I am reminded of his influence in design almost daily. We all stand on the shoulders of giants.

Morris Louis' Color Field

January 20, 2015

"I think that we realized that you didn't have to assert yourself as a personality in order to be personally expressive. We felt that we could deal solely with aesthetic issues, with the meaning of abstraction, without sacrificing individuality - or quality." - Kenneth Noland, referring to himself and Morris Louis. Morris Louis was an American painter most prominently known for his contribution to Color Field Painting. His depth and use of color are truly captivating and almost peaceful, but I will let the work speak for itself.
