Over the top glamour, chintz and bling – that’s what I expected to see inside the former home of Liberace, (the highest paid entertainer in the world during the 1950s–1970s). But when the doors of ‘Piazza de Liberace’ opened to the public for the first time during this year’s Palm Springs Modernism Week,  I was surprised […]

Wishbone_chair_in_red_via_designloversblog

When it comes to Modern Design, the Danes do it well.  No better example than the iconic ‘CH24′ known as the ‘Y’ or ‘Wishbone’ Chair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949. This chair is admired for its clean lines, graceful curves and distinctive wishbone-shaped back. Practically an art piece in itself! To celebrate the chair’s 60th anniversary, […]
