midMOD monday: pastel edition
It's spring here in the Carolinas and that means daffodils, the Easter Bunny, and Pimm's Cups are just around the corner. So in honor of the upcoming holiday or just springtime in general if that better suits you, I'm dedicating this midMOD Monday to all of your favorite design icons in various pastel hues. They are all here- Saarinen, Bertoia, Knoll, Eames- but this time in shades of cotton candy and jelly beans.
We are celebrating Richard Neutra's birthday all week here at claass HAUS, so if you are just joining us, make sure you check out Monday's post on the iconic Kaufmann House in Palm Springs. If you happen to be caught up on the Kaufmann House and are still dreaming about that pool (I know I am), don't worry about booking a trip to California just yet. I have the next best thing.
How about a little love for another one of Charlotte's fine local establishments this morning? SLATE furniture + art collective is maybe my favorite place to find unique, modern home goods locally, so even if you don't live nearby (or, er, walking distance), check this place out if you ever find yourself in the Queen City.
midMOD monday: the egg chair
Today on midMOD Monday, I bring you a chair. And it's not just any chair. It's the chair that changed a thousand hotel lobbies.

Blame it on the first day of spring, but I’m at maximum plant obsession right now.
St. Patrick Green
Happy St. Patrick's Day (and Happy Friday!) For the love of the Irish, today I bring you a few things that are both MODERN and GREEN. They're pretty perfect for the holiday or really, any day, since the Pantone Color of the year just so happens to be "Greenery." Green signals renewal, restoration, and "new beginnings." So go ahead and give your house a little spring 'refresh' with something green.
