About 13 weeks ago, the modish.net server was upgraded to a sleeker, faster operating system. At about the same time, several functions--like permitting new people (about 60) to join modish--became inoperable. Due to overwhelming work obligations, it may take some time for me to get things back in order. In the meantime, I have created a Facebook presence for modish.net, it is called Mid-Century Modern Dinnerware. I invite everyone to also gather there for discussions and posting latest finds. Although it was just created recently, it already has more than a hundred members.

Welcome to modish!

Modish is a social-networking community of good-spirited, modern design enthusiasts. Recent finds and collections are shared in a format resembling show & tell. The site is an ever-expanding resource on 20th century modern design. Posts on all forms of vintage modern design are welcome.

You've probably seen the thick reprint catalog of Heywood Wakefield furniture. This is the first time I've ever seen an original Heywood Wakefield Catalog in the wild.

Red and White Table

Red and White Table

This vibrant vintage tablecloth arrived from eBay just a couple of days ago. I bid more than I normally would, but couldn't resist the brilliant color and Calder-like Mobile motif.

Rare Tamac Prototype Deer

Found this pair of Tamac deer from a collector in Oklahoma. These are the first I've seen in 20 years of collecting Tamac.
