Top Posts of 2013: Re:Generation and Dylan Egon ~ mid-century modern
The following was originally posted on 26 February 2013.
I love mid-century modern. I love the clean lines, the sometimes bright colors, the ergonomics, the expression of detail, the truth of construction, I just love it. I’m currently in search of a credenza for my living room and on the hunt for something that either was from or speaks to this great period of furniture design (as well as art and architecture). Nakashima, Nelson, Eames, those of you who love it too know the standards.
My office, located at the boundary of TriBeCa and SoHo, and where I’ve “lived” for the last 9 years, is literally down the street from a gem of showroom for mid-century vintage and inspired furniture called Re:Generation. After 9 years, I finally took 15 minutes out of my day to pay them a visit and loved just about everything I saw. Chris, co-owner of the showroom, had some great knowledge and spent some time with me to explain her concept, which has been open since 1993 (they also have an outpost at ABC Carpet further uptown).
Since December 1st 2012, they have had a exhibition on the work of Dylan Egon, as well as some collaboration pieces, such as the featured credenza image. Stunning, precise, and beautifully graphic work.
Here’s an interview with Dylan about his collaboration with Re:Generation
Next Friday, they’ll be having a closing party for the exhibition, and it should be fun one.
I’ll be there. Maybe you’ll stop by as well?
