Mid-century. San Francisco artists Ames Munden and Lisa Tyrrell's design studio and web boutique, Beeline Mid-Century, sells items to appeal to the lover of mid-century. If you're looking for one-of-a-kind ethereal mobiles, contemporary pottery with a retro flair, or vintage ceramic pieces, look no further.
Their Recyclobiles have a light-as-air quality that is oh-so-appealing. Made from hand-stained fiberglass, recycled lamp materials, and filament, the mobiles have a retro look. They're available in five color combinations, and priced at $425.
Beeline Mid-Century also sells contemporary pottery by local artisans Sara Paloma and Ruth Hyndman. The ceramic coasters, dining platters, and vases have muted tones and simple shapes.
Also available are an ever-changing array of classic mid-century ceramics, including Modern California studio pottery, Italian Modern ceramics, and West German vases.
