As Dogford Studios makes its slow move to the new location on Anderson Pond, we’ll be considering some design clues from the contemporary design elements of the building. Mid-century modern furniture will fit in nicely to fill out the decor.
Mid-century modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that generally describes mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965.
The term, employed as a style descriptor as early as the mid-1950s, was reaffirmed in 1983 by Cara Greenberg in the title of her book, Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s (Random House), celebrating the style that is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement.
The husband and wife team of Charles and Ray Eames created a lot of the iconic furniture of the mid-century modern era that exists even today in official and reproduction versions.
The Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman are furnishings made of molded plywood and leather, designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Herman Miller furniture company. They are officially titled Eames Lounge (670) and Ottoman (671) and were released in 1956 after years of development by designers.
