You don't have to be a member of the "DOcumentation and COnservation of the MOdern MOvement - WEstern WAshington" (Docomomo-WEWA for short) in order to see a great exhibit at the Nordic Heritage Museum, going on now. It's entitled Danish Modern - Design For Living, and it features many designers and their specimens (mostly the sitting kind) on display until August 31st.

Although a small sampling of unique furnishings and tableware, it is part of a larger exhibition from the Museum Of Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa. Docomomo-WEWA had a hand in sponsoring the event, with a no-host bar and co-mingling of museum members, preservationists, interior designers, architects, and mid-century enthusiasts.

Check out me and Matt Hagen sampling the wares, doing some business card exchanges, and meeting some great people! (Sorry, no planking, Ryan.)

Welcome to the museum!
