Design Christmas Wishlist #3
MidCentury Magazine was set up in 2011 from a dining table in London and in 4 short years it has published 9 Issues brimming with discovery. Forgotten designers, homes and stories sit side-by-side with those treasured profiles in mid-century design – and always with the most beautiful of visuals.
You could say I was biased having worked for the magazine for over a year now but I’ve always been a fan of letting the story speak behind strong design and MidCentury Magazine embraces this ethos in spades. Following a rebrand in Issue 05 the strongly recognisable magazine aesthetic was born. A clean minimalist cover encompassing a bright mid-century hue and a design from the interior pages brought to the fore in a simple boxout. These issues have the feel of a good book (and importantly are brilliant fun to display on shelves with their punchy mid-century colours!).
They’re definitely for keeps and I use mine for inspiration, for guidance (the Buyer’s Guides are great) and to just immerse myself in learning about the mid-century mind. So if you want a magazine with longevity then I’d urge you to order a copy of the latest Issue 09 released this week.
This months Issue 09 speaks with Paula Day, daughter of British designer Great Robin Day, gives a concrete tribute to American Modernism in Belgium (with some LOVELY Eames furniture) and a bright fun refurbishment of a 1960s London chalet home. Enough to provide some respite in this busy December month!
