If you've been in the Mid-Century Modern blog reading/writing game for any amount of time, you've surely heard of The Brick House. If not, head over and give it a good, long look. The author, Morgan Satterfield, is one of those design-minded people who can seemingly effortlessly pick out all the best combinations of pieces, creating absolutely gorgeous rooms and vignettes. It's a real shame that she's gone MIA, as she was a big influence on my own decorating style (though there were many others as well).
One thing that rubbed off was the affinity for Don Freedman-style fiber wall art. Love it or hate it, she's in possession of quite an impressive collection and I was, for years, stricken with jealously as my own Don Freedman hunt had turned up nary a fiber of the good stuff.
Our friends over at Rocket Century even did all of the difficult picking leg work for me. All I had to do was mosey on in and whip out the plastic. I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised by the price as well (yeah, me, Mr. Cheapo). Thanks Kristina and crew!
Though I'm a fiber art fanatic, the design community appears extremely polarized by the subject. Some adore them. Some can't stand them. Others think that if they beat it in a game of Dejarik, it might pull their arms out of their sockets.
There's rarely a neutral reaction. So, what say you, readers?
