Blog of the Day:
Welcome to Mid Century Modernist! This place is great! There are so many things on this site that I have never seen before! Like this couch that I have posted below! How rad is that thing? I want one of those so bad now! That would be great for a small apartment! This blog is filled with all sorts of knowledge that I can learn from and sharpen my Mid Century identification skills. I've learned quite a bit from Mr. Modtomic and other blogs over the past few weeks and this website will definitely help boost my knowledge. You definitely need to go check this place out.
eBay Ad of the Day:
Here we have a pretty stellar looking Mid Century Couch on eBay. This thing is pretty cool I think. It's pretty expensive in my book but it does come with a chair that matches. I think this would look pretty cool in a living room but I can't afford the $1,650 starting bid this one has. I would like a more solid color on the pillows though If I had it. I really like solid color Mid Century furniture best. Sometimes like patterned stuff but mostly I'm a solid color guy. Much like that solid color green on the couch above.
Craigslist Ad of the Day:
Here we have a pretty sweet Mid Century Lounge Chair. It is $475 and it is made by Plycraft, inc. It is styled by a man named George Mulhauser. This chair does bear some likenesses to the Eames chair but this one has a slightly different appeal to it. Theses were supposed to have an ottoman to go with it but there is no mention of one in the ad. If you can't afford an original Eames chair but don't want a knockoff Eames chair, this may be the next best thing. It does look mighty comfortable!
