Etsy Giveaway & Holiday Picks

2017 was a crazy year for me; we moved to a new house, my husband started his new job cementing our residency in Montreal, I hit over 100k on Instagram, I went to Iceland and saw Northern Lights with my own eyes, celebrated new marriages and little babies of dear friends AND I became one of the ambassadors of Etsy Canada which believe it or not, was one of the biggest highlights of my year.

Mid Century Modern

Mid century modern furniture, aka furniture of 1950’s or anything that can be found on your parents’ & grandparents’ homes that looked awfully old to you once is the answer to (my, at least) every interior design related problem. Also the name of an architectural movement; mid century modern furnitures’ key characteristics are their clean simplicity, brass details and splayed legs which is also known as McCobb legs or a more modern metal rendition: the hairpin legs. The most famous designers of the movement are Arne Jacobsen (the egg chair and the ant chair), Peter Hvidt (the wooden frame armchair with grey textile cushions), Finn Juhl, Hans Wegner (the peacock chair, chinese chair, wishbone chair etc), Poul Henningsen (the “danish” lamp), Børge Mogensen (the spanish chair) and finally Charles and Ray Eames (the Eames chair). As the Eames couple being the only Americans in a big bunch of Danish designers, the movement is also referred to as the Danish Modern. Why is Mid Century Modern this important again all of a sudden?
