Timeless in Design

We as designers put forth ideas in order to design a building or chair or table. Design concepts and material palettes change throughout our lifetime and experience. It's difficult to design with the word "timeless" in mind. We designers can design anything but the true test is how to maintain modern design without being outdated. Very few can keep this concept in mind and perpetuate the definition of modern in the art they create.

For over a decade I've worked in a few architecture firms. I've designed homes that were 10,000 square feet. I've designed a 24 story highrise. I've even designed and built Mardi Gras floats. During my professional career, my mind has been opened to all avenues of design. A few years ago a good friend of mine had a particular book on her desk. I picked up the book and read the name. "1000 Chairs." I couldn't put it down for 2 days. I read it from cover to cover and learned a lot about the last century of chair design. This book has opened up a door. I will have a furniture line in the near future. For now I will study, restore, collect and sell midcentury modern furniture.
