We know it is maybe a little early but, before we head out for the day, the Monday Design Studio crew would like to wish everyone a safe, joyous Thanksgiving holiday. As the image says, "Family, Friends & Food." Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Monday, everyone - the Monday Design Studio team is heading out for an appointment. Time to scrape off the car windows!
The prolific and revered design duo of Charles and Ray Eames produced many of Mid-Century Modern's design "icons." Here are their classic Wire Chair frames, overlapping to crate a fantastic composition. For the designers, what mattered most was the integrity of the form, function and context - or as Charles often said, "The best for the most for the least." The Monday Design Studio team are inspired ny pieces such as this, and often use simple, classic pieces such as the Wire Chair in their design projects.
Given Cleveland's weather these past 48 hours, is it any wonder why the Monday Design Studio team is already thinking about Spring and Summer 2015? Here is a little "color forecast" for next year from our Canada friends at telio textures. (photo credit: Katelyn Bishop). Looks like we will be seeing a lot of color next spring and at MDS, we LOVE color!
Another beautiful happening, brought to you by The Ohio Design Centre and the talented interior design community of northeast Ohio. Thanks, Julie Washington/Cleveland Plain Dealer, for the coverage!
With its undeniable presence and incredible energy, the Guernica Lounge Chair by Laura Kirar for McGuire is not to be ignored. Like its artful counterpart, this chair is more complicated than it appears: the engineering is intricate and requires hand-craftsmanship that takes several weeks to complete by a single person, yet the result feels effortless and primitive. It requires 3,500 holes to be carefully placed through the honeycomb caning, then the artisan uses a custom-made needle to place and knot the contrasting smooth and textured leather laces of varying lengths to create the fringe. Available in black or brown (shown) leather fringe; cushions and inside back are custom with COM. Contact Monday Design Studio for more details on this statement piece (images courtesy McGuire).
Monday Design Studio believes design should be fun and joyful - as displayed here with this "mismatched" dinette set. Classic Eames' "Eiffel Chairs" have been updated in fresh, new colors. No longer stodgy old "Mid-Century icons," these chairs are fun. Life is too short to worry about "matching" all the time - c'mon, loosen up a bit and live a little! All items shown available thru Monday Design Studio; give us a call for more details.
Your home should be as unique and individual as you are - here are some fun "front doors" that let the world know something about you before the door is even opened. Thanks, Houzz, for the post!
