Fears and Kahn do what it takes to celebrate mid-century designs. Some designs are simply cleaned up, others refurbished to regain their old luster and some pieces get a whole new lease on life through Fears and Kahn’s bold and colorful designs. Above is a vintage chest of drawers that dates back to the 1930s that now get’s to behave very 2011 in this free form mixed media design.
Metropolis Drawers is a vintage 1950′s dresser, this time refinished in handpainted whimsy as a naive cityskape complete with color block handles. I don’t know that I could resist the urge to color it in.
This is vintage original, a parrot chair designed by IB Arberg in Sweden 1974, upholstered in 1970′s Bauhaus fabric by Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell.
And finally a 1960′s sideboard, finished in blue lacquer with birch handles. Want more furnishings, accessories and posters by Fears and Kahn? Head on over there and tell them Modenus sent you.
