Tomorrows House, owned by Michael Templeman, is a furniture store in Slat Lake City that houses some of the best and biggest names in mid century modern furnishings. Last November I had a chance to stop by and see his shop. I have been in a ton of MCM stores but I have to say that this is the coolest store I have been in. The renovation on the interiors and exteriors are outstanding. I asked Michael a few questions.
Tomorrows house is a store in Salt Lake City That specializes in designer mid century and danish modern furniture
My first encounter with mid century was my older brother collecting it – I was about 14 and it peaked my interest and that’s when I purchased my first “mid century” piece (A fiberglass blue Eames side shell)
I started selling mid century furniture In Portland at an antique shop and than opened my first storefront in boise Idaho in 2012
My favorite designers are : Eames, George Nelson and associates, Eero saarinen – I have no specific reason other than the feeling I get when I see the original designs by those designers – it’s almost a sense of nostalgia for me.
I personally collect furniture from the designs written above – I have a furniture bucket list that gets checked off but always grows.
Hmmmm I’ve always been fascinated with the vintage Eames storage units – I do own one but would love to find a larger one – I’ll just settle for your vintage Eames screen you found at a thrift store – ha
