Have you seen it around? Danish or Mid-century modern furniture “updated” by adding paint to certain parts of the piece?
It seems to be everywhere now. I saw it first from a favorite local seller of mine, Yesterday’s Treasures:
When I spotted it for the first time…I was as if transported to the scene of a gruesome crime. I actually cried in horror at my computer and said, “Whhhhhyyyyyy!!?!?!?! Why would you do that??!?!?!?!??” But after some time, I’ve come around to appreciate the creativity. I remain on the fence though, as I personally wouldn’t paint a perfectly gorgeous piece of Danish modern or mid-century modern furniture…but there are many out there whom I’m sure would disagree with me. Painted MCM is appearing everywhere.
For now, I think I’ll stick with these pieces as they were then. Perhaps though, this new trend isn’t too far off the mark.
What do you think? I’d love to hear readers comments.
