Inspiration for today, the California Design exhibition 1930-1965 at the Auckland Art Gallery.
Highlights for me were a wonderful screen and lamp by Greta Magnussan Grossman, a cocktail table of Milo Baughman pictured below (apparently THE crucial accessory of the home in the 1950s – I love the inbuilt plant holder!) and stunning architectural photographs and graphic images of the mid century modern architecture movement.
Charles and Ray Eames, ESU, 1950-5
Thomas Dolliver Church, the Donnell House Ranch, 1948/51
