Wayne Thom

Although I can’t tell you why just yet, I’ve been exploring Seventies Modernist interior design lately. One of the first websites Google came up with was that of the amazing architecture photographer Wayne Thom. I spent that last couple of nights looking at all the crisp new office and hotel interiors Mr. Thom photographed in the Seventies and was amazed how clean yet warm everything looked. Of course the excellent photography also helped to get that message across.  We tend to think of the Seventies as a mostly taste-free decade with brown bellbottoms and orange platform heels, but as you can see there was also a lot of beautiful design around. With some pictures I’m not really sure if the furniture it strictly Modernist anymore – but I’m sure my friends at Modiste Furniture can help me out.

If you’re into architecture photography or if you’re looking for interior design that is a little off the beaten path compared to all the safe pastels of 2013 – then look no further than

PS: Just going through all of Mr. Thom’s projects of the Seventies took me two nights. I’m going to take some more time next week to go through Mr. Thom’s photographs from the Eighties – I’ll keep you posted!
