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.
Fabio Fantolino has a special hand when it comes to making contemporary feel warm and inviting. The shapes and design found through these spaces are very geometric and linear which can become cold and hard. The materials used in the floors, walls and furniture help create that warmth. The use of different woods stood out to me. Woods of different species can instantly warm up a space while providing texture an pattern.
Whats not to love about Villa R by C.F. Møller. The daylight like basement was designed because of house size restrictions but it worked out great for this family that needed designated play ares for the kids. The front of the house could be mistaken as the back due to all of the glass windows which were an intentional design element to allow the owners full enjoyment of their surroundings. I appreciate the color palettes happening on the exteriors and interiors, well done!
Lorenzo Pennati has an amazing and full portfolio containing beautifully captured interiors. I ran across his work on the Behance network and took the time to look through every one of his shoots. The way these interior scenes are captured enhance details the viewer may miss. In photo number three, is the ceiling light fixture for real, because it is amazing. I feel like some of the spaces are dream scales full of “untouchable” furnishings.
