1. Minimal Mid-Century Office

    Other than an armchair that I’m still waiting to arrive, I’ve finally finished furnishing my apartment. Yes, yes, I know, It has taken me almost 5 months to find everything that I wanted! I chose a selection of new and vintage items that recalls the mid-century era, from the late 1940s to the early 1960’s. I’ve only recently become enamored with this style, which is recently enjoying a resurgence in popularity both in decor and in architecture. To me, mid-century design represents the optimism of society during that era - the great expansion of the middle class and the realization of the “American Dream”.

    The desk was custom made with American Black Walnut by an amazing custom furniture maker in San Francisco. The chair is vintage teak from Norway. The table lamp is also vintage; I replaced the orignal paper shade with gold-interior black fabric. The other task lamp is from IKEA!

    Take a look at my next post, which details the design and construction of the desk.
