Welcome to MidCenturee. A space dedicated to our love of the MidCentury design. I need the good karma after a childhood of spinning on my dad’s Eames chair until I managed to break it.
Dad’s love of the style ended in the 70s when four kids came along. We grew up in an old Victorian with a collection of new and old. It was comfortable and cluttered but not a space to think with a clear mind. I longed to live in the clean environment of mid-century Palm Springs or LA like I saw in the photos of my favorite photographer Julius Shulman. As an adult, I realize how unrealistic that is but can use the inspiration it provides.
I mention Mr. Shulman because I come to the movement via photography. I’ve since been absorbed by the architecture, art and furniture design.
Now, the look is everywhere. What’s is and what’s not real mid-century doesn’t matter. It’s what, it makes you feel is the way to gauge its validity. This site is a way to educate myself and share what I learn and love.
