This week, Room by Room with FormFire Glassworks takes a look at an icon of modern architecture and furniture design, the Egg by Arne Jacobsen.
This strength of form requires that items paired with it be strong and geometric as well. An op-art wall hanging gets a warmer twist when made as a quilt, while a handmade painted bowl references the circular patterns. Strong graphics for a set of cards echo the color and design of the chair. A handmade chalkboard is simple in its layout, and adds some depth and personality to the selections. A ceramic egg hearkens back to the chair’s name, and reminds us to strive to be our best.
Next week I will choose a new iconic piece and give you my picks for accessorizing your modern home.
