Mid-Century Modern specializes in reproductions of classic mid-twentieth century furniture design by heavyweights such as George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen, and Isamu Noguchi. Gorgeous and timeless design to drool over. That's a Harry Bertoia chair on the left.
Grass Collective is an interesting small company that creates moving art. From the site: "If you look at televisions and computer monitors from a lateral perspective you can see them as empty picture frames. People are used to pictures in frames being static. Paintings and photographs are static art. Imagine a framed picture that’s moving. It sounds futuristic or magical, but it’s not. It’s just a different way of using computer and television displays, with a different kind of motion picture content."
Quite cool. They also offer free downloads, as a way of sampling their content.
