Title: Mid-Century Modern
Created: 11.09.2010 19:51
One of those projects you either love or hate.
A design blog challenged me to build something in the Mid-Century Modern style. This is my response. It is inspired by the TV show Mad Men and a Danish-designed 1960's desk I found on ebay. It's OK to hate it. The design blog loves it :) There doesn't seem to be any room in between. What do you think?
