wideworldofwes asked: Where did you get that credenza (or at least I think it's a credenza) from your post on 02/07? Also, your style is incredible. Looking through your tumblr is like looking through a museum, so many great pieces. I'm a huge fan
Hey- thanks for your kind words, and what a great eye you have to noticed my beloved credenza by the French metal designer Jean Prouvé.
He was one of the earliest designers to work with bent sheet metal, much that was eventually bathed in bright paint (pre-50s). I’ve been privately wishing for his Cité lounge chair with has gorgeous leather straps for arms.
A great place to see some of his better pieces is at Wright 20th Century Auctions where you can see pieces that have passed through their auctions.
My tumblr was intended initially to be a home for my archive of mostly Japanese and Belgian designers, with the goal of expanding awareness and understanding about important designers, many who have not received their due. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the time to create a site with an interface where I could easily upload images and information about the pieces owing to a, ahem, career. I just started cataloging my pre-2003 Helmut Lang and it’s 50 pieces. My Japanese garments number in the thousands.
