Snider Clock - Model 503, 1957 (the year I was born) TV lamp clock. My amazing wife bought this year's ago and I've had it in my office for 4-ever but neither of us realized it was a lamp. My bro' @wade_o_matic looked at it and said, "you should fix this... did you know it was also a lamp?" Doh! I was immediately inspired to fix it up. For a mid-century guy, I grew up with this stuff so I'm not as hyped about design movement as you younger hipsters are, but wow, did those designers (product, architecture, interior, graphic design) have their moments. One thought (sortof on the subject), and this is just opinion: painting everything white is... well, it's not really period accurate. I mean, I get it - it's a knee-jerk reaction to all the mish-mash, heavy patterns, busy-ness, basically all the crap you all see in Baby-Boomerville. And I know that white is somehow supposed to be soothing: modern minimalism. It's definitely cool. I honestly love a lot of it as long as there are nice accents and great color. My fear is that you guys, and your kids will regret the momentary fascination with white-washing all your beautiful mid-century wood, walls, pianos, furniture, etc. Wood is classic. Whitening it is like one step above chalk painting it. Do some research. Google "Mid-Century Modern" > images. Read about the manifesto. Designers were interested in clean simplicity. They wanted to integrate what they saw in nature into America's suburbia. They were drawing from Bauhaus and other movements. Study Frank Lloyd Wright. Function and form were both important. It wasn't about 'not' using color. I mean, if you dig white, then by all means, paint it white. But if I were a betting man I'd say a good investment for the future (give it 20 years) would be - in companies who make paint strippers. Your kids are going to buy the crap out of it. 😆 Trust me. This will happen. They're going to say, "I can't believe mom and dad painted over this beautiful wood". And for them to resell your home and your furniture, they're going to have to undo what you did 😆. But it's ok - what are trends for but to enjoy while it's trending. Wow did I get into the weeds. Cool clock though, huh?
