Dwell on Design Furniture Row Part One
Without a doubt mid-century mod is still dominating the face of modernist furniture according to many of the vendors at Dwell on Design but it was refreshing to see some new influences making their way to the front as well. Hand made look is surfacing more and more as well as a mix of industrial aesthetic is showing up more and more. As for the industrial part. I've been been seeing it more and more over the years and welcome the inclusion of up-cycling not just materials but also entire fixtures that might not serve their original purpose. Personally, I can't wait to experiment with it when I get home. For more examples of where I'm getting this from check out Truck furniture (http://truck-furniture.co.jp/), Cleveland Art (clevelandart.com) and even Cisco Home (ciscohome.net). Look for more post to come on this.
