Modern Book Corner: Handcrafted Modern
You ever dream about how you want your life to look like in the future? What you want your future home to look like? We know you’re supposed to live in the present and stuff like that, but sometimes we get swallowed up by our dreams of what we might be surrounded with aesthetically one day.
The book, “Handcrafted Modern: At Home with Mid-century Designers,” is a bit of an oldie, but oh what a goodie. We had drooled over it when it first published, but then kind of let it slip through the cracks of our design brains for awhile. Seeing it in full color and full glory at a friend’s house over the weekend made us regret not buying this sweet book long ago. It has also been making us dream of what our homes could look like some day.
From the publisher: “An intimate and revealing collection of photographs of astonishingly beautiful, iconic, and undiscovered mid-century interiors. Among significant mid-century interiors, none are more celebrated yet underpublished as the homes created by architects and interior designers for themselves. This collection of newly commissioned photographs presents the most compelling homes by influential mid-century designers, such as Russel Wright, George Nakashima, Harry Bertoia, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eva Zeisel, among others.”
