The return of modern

Interesting little piece in the Chron this morning about all that early 1960s modern furniture — you know, the hard, angular stuff that accompanies the starburst clocks and basement rumpus rooms of those houses in West Portal, Mt. Davidson and Lakeshore districts that are still occupied by their original owners, and that graces the catalogs of Design Within Reach (at out-of-reach prices). Everything old is new again eventually, but that doesn’t make it any more comfortable or practical to live with.

Speaking of really cool design that’s great in someone else’s house, there’s a tour of Eichler homes in Marin next week.

Now, to relax and wait for the time when my ticky-tacky Doelger box swings to the cool side of the pendulum.
