Last weekend, we took a road trip to LA in the name of mid-century modern goodness. I mentioned in this post about the greatness that is Modernica’s once a year factory sale. For anyone who loves this style of furniture and lives in the area (or, you know, at the other end of the state), it is absolutely worth the visit. Plus (and this is a big plus in our book), most of the furniture is at least half off from the regular price. Who can beat that deal?
Before we left, the engineer and I made a game plan—we were in the market for two lights and a set of planters that I had been eyeing for a year. Anything else we found would be a bonus.
Now, I’m a fan of Ikea just as much as the next person but I have to admit that it feels nice to know that I have a few pieces that can grow up with me and perhaps be handed down to my children one day.
So we ended up with new lighting, a new home for indoor plants (that I can hopefully keep alive), and a little sun thanks to a quick trip to the beach. All in all, a successful weekend. Until next year, Modernica!
