This year we had the pleasure of being on the committee for the MAM (Mad About Modern) Mid Century Modern Home Tour (09/09/17)! We worked with a great group of people to plan and met so many new people through the whole experience! We also worked with a few of the designers in the Designer Showcase Home and they borrowed some pieces from us for their rooms in the home! Everything looked so fabulous!
I took pictures of my favorite areas in each home on the tour! The first 2 pictures were at 2236 Ferncliff Road - the kitchen had the original cabinets from 1955. They are amazing and the owners updated the whole look a little (without taking away the existing tasteful charm) by adding a really trendy backsplash (LOVE)! Their downstairs bathroom was SO GOOD. All the textures - exposed brick (which was featured throughout their house and it was amazing), the wood vanity & contrasting countertop, and the marble shower tile... SWOON! The last 2 pictures are from 6508 Trenton Place - you KNOW we were loving the furnishings in these 2 rooms. That teak sideboard in the dining room is everything & the colorful rug really made everything pop! The kitchen had a pedestal table with 4 Eames shell chairs on eiffel bases (we have a few of these that will be making their debut in our inventory soon)! I love how they mixed the chair colors!
These pictures were from 6827 Folger Drive. I loved the rectangular trellis on the front of the house! They had some really good chairs too - this Selig "Z chair" & Eames lounge chair are staples of MCM style! The last picture is information on the home - classified as an "Echo Research Home".
Our favorite house on the tour was 3517 Johnny Cake Lane. The inside of the house was amazing - you could tell that the owners really had a love for mid century modern furniture (we completely related to that)! Their stairs were walnut and just floated to the next floor (I would TOTALLY mess my clumsy self up on them... too much of a hazard for me personally but I really appreciate them haha). THE KITCHEN was round and fabulous. It was just a home run.
We had so much fun planning with the MAM committee, being part of the designer showcase home, and touring the homes! We are definitely looking forward to the next tour! We will keep you updated with details as we know them.
