Table of Contents: Midcentury Revival

February 1, 2016

How to explain the enduring appeal of fifties and sixties design? The mod silhouettes? The ability to look at home amid the new and the antique? The built-to-last construction? In this week’s issue, we’ll be exploring these questions—and also taking an appreciatory look at some almost-forgotten design stars.

Remodelista Issue Midcentury Revival Volume 10 Issue 5

  • Julie spotlights a midcentury masterpiece in London in today’s Architect Visit.
  • Four defunct midcentury American design studios have been revived of late by the sons and daughters of the originators. Watch for Tuesday’s Favorites post.
  • Steal This Look: The Hatch house in Wellfleet on Cape Cod, a Remodelista all-time favorite (and it’s available for rent via the Cape Cod Modern House Trust).
  • Eames had some great cohorts; in Wednesday’s Vintage furniture post, Margot rounds up under-the-radar midcentury California design stars worth knowing about.
  • This sixties-inspired Scandinavian kitchen is a pro Ikea hack that’s sold in a range of options. Stay tuned for Kitchen of the Week.
  • Discovered via Instagram: A New York fashion couple has been restoring a 1950 ranch using original plans and photos as their guide. We had to see it for ourselves.
