i have a client who has a very 90s look going on, so i created my own ode to the 90s today.
before you start drooling for this 50s-inspired pc from schultzework design studio, a local pasadena product and 3D viz design firm, please know it isn’t a reality…yet. the philco pc received top-three placement in a design competition for the “radical reinvention of the personal computer” and it was inspired by a classic 50s tv (the philco predicta), modern minimalism, the steampunk movement, and antiques. the above image is amazingly not a photograph but one of their 3D visualizations. it had me fooled. i think the philco pc is a beauty and it just might nudge this mac girl to covet a pc if it hits the market. being a pasadena native i am especially pleased to give kudos to schultzeworks design studio for an innovative and stunning design.

is this a riot or what?! it’s the hamburger bed. it’s a one of a kind! it was never meant to be sold but the creator/owner kayla kromer has fallen on hard times and has to sell it. it you want to bid on it at ebay just click on the photo. hurry, bidding ends july 19th. i love the notes: renegade sesame seeds may need to be reattached after washing and the pickle pillow is not included. what?! no pickle pillow?? lol. 10% of the price will be donated to a charity as well. sweet. there is even a facebook fan page. come on, you know you want to join. :)

over at the mid-century modern blog i found a photo spread that beautiful harmonizes mid-century modern design with a rustic sensibility. the architects are nyc firm fernlund + logan and their work features some wonderful modern design. enjoy.
