As summer wanes, more and more people are hunting and gathering accessories which personalize their living space. Any object which is not mass produced, unusual in craftsmanship, agile in space or pleasingly tactile gives a room a presence and conversational cache. There is a fascination with handmade toys, Americana, industrial objects, salesman samples and other curiosities. Complete Erector Sets from the late 1930s through the 1950s are in high demand. Midcentury designers in both Europe and the USA not only created furniture and lighting but often lent their talents to designing games, toys, household items, mobiles and unique pieces. Gio Ponti, Fornasetti, Charles and Ray Eames, Charles Hollis Jones, George Nelson, Gaetano Pesche, Mategot, Phillipe Stark, Paul McCobb, Karl Springer, Raymond Loewy, Gae Aulenti,Carl Aubock, Charlotte Perriand, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol,Lucienne and Robin Day and Shiro Kuramata, and Carlo of Hollywood are just a few examples of many versatile designers. Metro Modern just may have the piece you are yearning for but haven't seen yet. Stop by and touch something.
