Herself: played to long here, napped, and ate dinner with a spoon. Hand elevated. Many thanks to you all for keeping me in your thoughts.

If today’s architecture and decoration are considered modern, how do we classify the wonderful mid-twentieth century stylings. These forms were grown from the form follows function designs of the Bauhaus. The scientific thinking of the time and use of new materials in most Mid-Century Modernist items create simple yet pleasing objects. Decoration is often light and amusing in line though often thick in texture. Curves contrast with the dramatic straight line of glass or metal.
