Let the Wookie Win

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.

Well, my dry streak has come to a close.  Welcome to fibertown - population: me.

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? 



  1. I think it's absolutely spectacular. I'm a fan of fiber wall hangings, and yours is great. Congratulations on checking another item off your wish list!
