Library Friday – Modern Originals: At Home with MidCentury European Designers

MidCentury design has always resonated with us. From Jill’s early years working in her parent’s Scandinavian modern furniture stores, to Steve’s appreciation for modern art, it’s no wonder Leslie Williamson’s book, Modern Originals: At Home with MidCentury European Designers found its way onto the shelves at steve mckenzie’s.

Modern Originals

Williamson’s book features the homes of many iconic, and even some unknown, European designers, offering readers a glimpse into how people lived in these midcentury masterpieces and what inspired these historic designs.

As we begin the process of right-sizing, and paring down in order to simplify and streamline our new-found lives as empty-nesters, this book has helped tremendously, sharing what these amazing design-minds lived with (and in many cases, without).

We also appreciate that Williamson used only natural light when photographing these amazing spaces, thus truly showcasing what these homes are like in real life.

Come in to steve mckenzie’s today to peruse this fabulous book for yourself! And if you’d like some help bringing some midcentury touches into your family’s space, the steve mckenzie’s design team is happy to provide their expertise.
