The Illustration of Mid-Century Modern

January 6th, 2011





This is day 4 of Mid-Century Modern week. If you haven’t seen the previous sets you can catch those right below—what great collections they are. As I was sifting through architecture and interior design, I kept coming across illustrations via Flickr that were just magnificent. I’m sure the amount of time to create these is substantial. What I really enjoy about this illustration set is that each of them has a futuristic look and feel which is what really makes mid-century, modern. Check out more of Charles William Schridde’s work.

    I most definitely have this book…My favorite is the domed place with the pool next to the ocean. Such a great spot to have a below-water tunnel to sneak in and out of.
