aruba, jamaica, ooooh I wanna take ya

So while on the epic MCM house tour in Columbus, IN last weekend, I burst through the door of the first home to find this:

Oh yeah, I gotta make that mine.

Just a few days later, I was perusing Craigslist (my new best friend) and found a pretty good version of the same table and chairs. Four chairs instead of six and a little wear ‘n tear.

I had to drive all the way to Kokomo to get it. And as you can see, almost everything fit* into my little green Honda. Almost.

Everything but the table top. That’s kinda important. Oh well. I’ll be heading back up to get the top this week and then another piece of awesome will be added to my collection. Hmm. What next?

*Have to say thanks to the incredibly nice couple that sold me the table. Could not have jammed all that into my car without their help.

I ain’t mod atchya

Did you know Columbus, Indiana (about 45 min south of Indy) ranks 6th in the nation for architectural innovation and design? Uh-huh. Is true.

Allow me to name drop: Eero Saarinen, Eliel Saarinen, Harry Weese, I.M. Pei… and more.

I’m still reeling from this weekend’s whirl-wind architecture tour. See, what happened was this: Columbus Visitor Center invited a whole bunch of design bloggers from across the country for a VIP tour, including me. You can follow this weekend’s play by play here: #COLMCM and check out some of the pictures I shot on Flickr. Expect more blog posts in the following days.

Aside from all the MCM eye candy, there were also a ton of cool people to hang out with. Go ahead, give ‘em some love:

Cincinnati Modernation

Modern Ridgewood

Modern Capital
