MCM Home Brimming With Design Classics

MCM Home Brimming With Design Classics

Kimber Watson
Sep 20, 2012

This month we're celebrating all things design-related here at Apartment Therapy, and one topic I've personally enjoyed reading is the history behind some of my favorite classic designs. It goes without saying, the mid-century modern era played an important role in design and of course, is fully represented. I came across this house tour from a devoted mid-century modern enthusiast, chock full of these iconic pieces.

The house is simple and somewhat sparse, and the all-white palette allows the classics to really stand out. The mint green Eames Shell Rocker and Noguchi Coffee Table in the first photo are two easily recognized mid-century modern classics, but what else do you see that you can name?

Still thinking? Give up, yet? Ok, I'll help you out with a couple more. I spot Catherineholm enamelware and a George Nelson Clock. Now that I've called out a few, I'm leaving our readers to throw in their two cents and name away the rest in the comment section. And while you're at it, if there's a a classic design you would like to know more about and see featured, feel free to offer up some suggestions and maybe yours will get picked!
