Sourcebook of Modern Furniture

Sourcebook of Modern Furniture

By Jerryll Habegger and Joseph H. Osman W. W. Norton $89.95 Like the two previous editions, the latest <i>Sourcebook of Modern Furniture</i> by Jerryll Habegger and Joseph H. Osman is filled with all facets of technologically innovative furniture from Gebrüder Thonet to Zaha Hadid. But this third edition offers the splendid and lively allure of color images. As the saying goes, third time’s a charm. Each of the 2,000 images is categorized by furniture type, year (in chronological order), model name or number, designer(s), manufacturer, materials and dimensions. With little text and relatively no historical information, this book is a great quick source for design professionals, furniture buyers and consumers looking for their favorite innovative and modern pieces to complete their home or office décor.

Right now, I'm sitting here eating my Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich, watching Flight of the Conchords, submitting sites to my favorite Social Networking websites, all the while my Noguchi Akari lamp is lighting my way...I adore this lamp more than any of my other mid-century modern pieces. I only wish it was a true vintage piece...but reissues are always in mint condition, right? ;)

  • If you're not in to glamour and intricate, antiquey designs, opt for a more simple and modern vanity set. This modern look is still feminine and pretty, but will better flow with a home filled with clean, modern pieces.

The g, the flagship of the Monogram Hotel Group, is a smashing design that would delight any traveler. Designed by Galway native and hat-designer extraordinaire, Philip Treacy; every room is an art show in true form. The Pink Salon is what originally drew my attention; the hypnotizing vortex patterned carpet, the hot-bikini pink on the walls, and the Andy Warhol-print chairs. As hot and flirty as the Pink Salon radiates, just see how cool and aloof the Grand Salon is…. Texture and the streamlined palette of all things oyster and pearl give the Grand Salon a luxe vibe. The design also mixes traditional, older styles seamlessly with modern pieces in a truly wonderful way.

Was this London living room completed yesterday or 35 years ago? Look carefully: oversized geometric–pattern carpet, a boldly modern sofa covered in raw silk and flanked by Empire bookcases, and a plain sheet of mirror topping a Regency fireplace mantel. If you chose 1971, go to the head of the class. This was just one of innumerable spaces designed by David Hicks (1929–1998), arguably the most influential designer of his generation. Hicks was one of the first to create deliberately photogenic rooms. No wonder his client list included equally close-up–ready clients such as John Schlesinger, Helena Rubinstein, Vidal Sassoon and the Prince of Wales. Indeed, Hicks’s dynamic mix of antique and modern pieces has a deceptively contemporary ring. Designers including Jonathan Adler, Kelly Wearstler, Muriel Brandolini and Tom Ford—young guns who learned his coveted look pouring over the 11 books Hicks authored in his lifetime—have adopted his signature style. Hicks’s second coming is due partly to the work of his son, Ashley Hicks, who designs new collections of carpet and fabric inspired by his father’s designs for Lee Jofa and Saxony Carpet.

  • “It can’t just be about money; it has to be about what you love,” explains Lisa Purdon of the Brooklyn furniture store Cosmos Cosmos, which she and her business partner, Cosmo Prete, opened in 1998. The two started out as artists,... “It can’t just be about money; it has to be about what you love,” explains Lisa Purdon of the Brooklyn furniture store Cosmos Cosmos, which she and her business partner, Cosmo Prete, opened in 1998. The two started out as artists, fabricating furniture into sculpture. Eventually they turned their passion for finding interesting modern pieces into a home-furnishings boutique unlike any other. Tucked in a corner of the store, for example, on top of an Eames lounger is a Paul McCobb table. And, depending on whether Purdon and Prete have rearranged the display area that day, you’ll see everything from a $350 settee in need of reupholstering (it has an amazing frame!) to a $15,000 mint-condition Jens Risom sofa; from a ship’s spotlight (set directors like them) to Breuer’s Wassily chair (White or black? You choose) hanging from the ceiling. The partners’ rationale: “We choose our furniture based on what we think is beautiful.” Also unlike many stores, Cosmos Cosmos offers “full service,” meaning it buys on request for all client types. “We listen to our gut,” says Purdon, “but we also listen to our client. If someone tells us he or she wants a blue sofa, we’ll find the coolest blue sofa our eyes have ever seen, based on the person’s budget and specifications.” So if you are looking for a white vinyl sofa or a Neil Small mirror (note: Cosmos Cosmos is one of the few original collectors in the country), or if you just want to hang out in a Corbu chair all day, then step into this high-brow, high-end shop. As Purdon puts it: “We are a little rock-and-roll in our approach to art and commerce, but we are very educated and sophisticated about mid-century modern.”
