Inspire Me Monday: Photography by Ben Schnall

Architectural photographer Ben Schnall wasn’t exactly a living legend like contemporary Julius Shulman, but his work was no less spectacular. Most known for his captures of Marcel Breuer’s designs, Schnall also worked for various magazines such as Life and House and Garden. May your Monday be inspired by the images below, captured by the great and oft-overlooked Ben Schnall.

Fiberglass-Maddness-Logo

With the changing of the leaves comes freshly-harvested corn, gourds, winter squash, pumpkins and everything that is deliciously yellow and orange. Today we celebrate the harvest with our newest shade of autumn yellow, Maize. The Maize Fiberglass Chair is a muted shade of yellow that delivers a warm, comfortable feel to understated and refined palates.

Introducing Modernica’s New Alpine Table!

alpine-final

Perhaps you’ve met our most popular bedroom series, the Alpine Collection. If you love the sinuous curves and simple lines of the Alpine Bed, you’re going to adore the Alpine Table, available in 3′, 6′, and 8′ lengths.

The Alpine Table’s molded plywood construction consists of multiple layers of North American Maple, while the top layer and legs are constructed of rich North American walnut. Crafted so that each part of the table contributes to the overall strength and stability of the frame, the table demonstrates a remarkable sturdiness and durability. And just in time for Holiday entertaining! Until October 23rd, you can buy the brand new table for 15% off! Click here to purchase.

Happy Birthday to Mr. Pierre Koenig

Today we celebrate the legacy of the man who built the perfect mid-century modern home. His Case Study Houses 21 and 22 will forever be the consummate examples we use to exemplify American modernism. Thankfully, both of these homes were registered as historic landmarks last year, so we may enjoy them for many years to come.

Below we take a look at these two masterpieces, along with many of the other works that Pierre Koenig was responsible for during his long career. Happy Birthday Mr. Koenig! He would have been 89 years old today.

Event Spotlight: An Evening at the Al Struckus House

Bruce Goff’s only residential design in Los Angeles – and the last thing he designed before his death – is an interesting structure to say the least. The house is unlike any other, a four-story-high central cylinder surrounded by five smaller connected cylinders clad in natural redwood, glass tiles, and undulating stucco. It’s a “see it to believe it” home for sure, and now’s your chance.

This Saturday, the Al Struckus House will be open for viewing from 4-6pm, with wine and refreshments to top it all off. Visit the Docomomo website to reserve your tickets and get a rare look at a unique and interesting piece of architectural history.
