Hello all you modern-design enthusiasts — the fall issue of Modern in Denver is now available!
It’s the thickest issue yet and it’s come a long way from the summer of 2010, when I first spotted it at the Denver Modernism show a few years back. That’s when I first met William Logan, who started this publication from scratch out of his lovely mid-century modern home. When he found out I was a writer, he asked me to write. I’ve been the regular “Field Study” contributor (plus a few other pieces) ever since. I am about to start a new job (more on that later) but I hope to continue writing this cool-product section. It gives me a chance to explore modern design, meet creators and expand my knowledge.
Back to the fall issue: There are a lot of whimsical products in the regular “Field Study” section that I pen. Some call the genre happy modern. I call it I-want-this modern! Like these:
The issue has lots of features of houses I want to live in and office spaces I want to have. Plus, a profile on Boulder Architect Harvey Hine. I really love how the magazine focuses clearly on Colorado and what’s new, but also reminds us of how local modern design was influenced in the past.
If you can, pick up an issue at your local Whole Foods, Tattered Cover and a few other spots around town.
