A Nod to Mod

Clean, spare, modern, timeless. Whether these pieces are reissues, reinterpretations or completely original, they look to the past for design inspiration while embracing current trends and desires. These are truly the "comfort food" for the homes of the boomer generation, but have found a whole new audience with the X's and Y's.

In perfect balance, the console by Jens Risom for Ralph Pucci International.

The chaise by Thos. Moser is an ode to Alvar Aalto's tubular frame relaxer of an earlier era.

The "Papa Bear" or "Teddy Bear" chair as designed by Hans Wegner is just right, and available through House of Copenhagen in a range of finishes and fabrics.

Jonathan Adler's Philippe Loveseat is "Jetsons" cool.
For the media room or the board room or maybe the man cave, the Dexter Chair by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.
The keen eye of Michael Berman Ltd. produced the Griffith Console with shagreen leather doors.

The epitome of the modern design aesthetic, Christian Liaigre at Holly Hunt, offers the Ile de Re Armchair.

Rob and Laura Petrie never had it so good.
