Just the ticket…

for a relaxing sit or restful sleep. The George Nelson Daybed, designed in 1950 is available once again. Produced by Herman Miller, it is lean minimalist seating by day, firm comfortable bed by night. Perfect for that first apartment, a home office/guest room or that modern weekend cabin. My favorite incarnation is as shown in walnut. A light ash finish, brushed or polished metal hairpin legs and dozens of approved Herman Miller Textiles are available options.

Black and White…

January 2, 2015

or bright, bright, bright?  Whatever palette your simplequietmodern style is anchored in you could easily add a splash of bold winter checks with one of these. Architect and designer Alexander Girard designed these blankets in 1956 as part of a complete style and brand overhaul for Braniff Airlines. Those were the days when modern air travel was not only convenient, but stylish. Reissued by Herman Miller and made by Pendleton in virgin wool and cotton,  they’re ready to add that lost panache to your next jaunt…whether a cross-country flight or weekend road trip.
