I was recently invited by Bosch and Dwell to participate in a summit to discuss the evolution of the modern kitchen. The first night started with a beach side dinner as we got to know the good people from Bosch and Dwell along with the other attendees. The next day was full of discussion and learning.
The talents of Chris Nguyen have been featured here on Plastolux several times so he is no stranger. This time we get to see what Chris has done for his own home. There is obviously a design obsessed person living here as we can see plenty of mid century modern goodness throughout the rooms of this home. Design obsessed is a good thing in my book. I really like the older structure and what has been done with updates. The open ceiling on the lower level gives the space a loft like industrial feel. The slate floors and the beams in the ceilings are another favorite element.
I don’t think I have featured anything mid century in New Jersey before but this one is nicely done. The majority of MCM homes that have had this much work done have too many contemporary finishes. I feel that the interiors are good but of course I would need some older pieces in the mix. I really appreciate the quality of materials used in the remodel. The kitchen is a stunner, the layout and materials work so well with the post and beam construction. The best feature is the front door and entry way, how amazing is that all glass door running floor to ceiling? Did I mention that the house was for sale?
Modern History is an outstanding mid century store in Melbourne. How do I know it is outstanding? I follow them on Facebook and just about every photo of their store and inventory is top rate. The store front itself is quite nice, having some of the features of mid century architecture. Floors, stone walls and glass entry way make me think of a well designed mcm home. Modern History doesn’t have a full functioning website just yet but make sure to like their page to see all of the eye candy.
Capperidi Casa has an amazing mid century show room in Modena Italy. I recently discovered them instagram and instantly intrigued. I am a sure sucker for a store that takes pride in setting up groupings of furniture. There is a great selection of mid century furniture, lighting and accessories. Not only is it fun to look through all of their offerings but you can gain an eduction. Well done Capperidi Casa.
These modern concrete floors, countertops and other projects by AtelierB are nicely crafted. I have always like the flexibility of concrete. It seems like it can be used in almost any application. I love the concrete wall panels and stools, they have a nice industrial feel to them. From the looks of it AtelierB know concrete floors. They appear as glass and are such a nice interior surface.
