I was chained to my booth but I dashed off for a couple of minutes here-and-there to shoot a few quick snaps of some booths that were near my own. The Michigan Modernism Expo was about 2/3 the size of the 20th Century show in Cincinnati but it boasted lots of high end furniture, a number of clothing dealers and a significant amount of Art Deco. My pics may not give a full picture of the show but they should give you a taste.
Here are a few pictures of booths
I really dig the giant promotional pictures of cowboys at this booth
My neighbor, and a heck of a nice guy, was Steve-o-tomic; he makes mid century inspired wall art. I really should have taken some more pics of his work, it is fantastic! Very colorful and retro-tastic (just don't say it looks like the Jetsons). Here is a link to his web site: http://stevecambronne.com/
Here are a few pieces of furniture that caught my lens
Milo Baughman. Looks so comfy, it was priced at $375, I was tempted to see what sort of dealer to dealer price I could get.
Finn Juhl "Japan" chairs
The lucite chairs are Laverne "Lilly" chairs ($4000 ea-gulp!) the blue/green settee and ottoman is Paul McCobb Systematic group for Widdicomb ($3400)
George Nelson daybed ($800)
I didn't get the maker of this table
A womb and a Papa Bear making quite the color statement together
These stacking tables are quite striking with their differing wood tones
The sofa is by Milo Baughman ($1800) nice travertine surfboard table too
And another travertine surfboard style table
This "desk in a box" folding desk was one of my favorites (only $675, I think they have something similar at Restoration Hardware for much, much more)
It even has a built in light
A taste of the Deco
Loved this Deco bar!
Here are a few odds and ends that tickled my fancy
This dealer brought this bent plywood sculpture and sculptural table from Montreal
Some neat andirons ($295)
This chrome and lucite ball shaped phone was in the booth across from me and was whispering for me to buy it all show (I resisted)
A bowling alley score table just waiting to be a robot sculpture
There was some Heywood Wakefield
And these chairs... well, more on them later.
