About 10 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 70 some 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.

We look forward to your active participation.

When you register and sign in, you can join in the discussions, search content, and access thousands of pages. Sign in to remove the welcome and login boxes.
