Use Famous Mod Design to Accent Your Décor

We’re all attracted to what’s new and fresh in interior design, although in the rush to find the latest trend we often pass up the opportunity to score an eye-popping look with a recognizable masterpiece.

But, how do you do that affordably, and how do you know what to pick? Check out these tips and a quick list of items that have enduring style.

A Note on ‘Reproductions’

Some folks may cast a sidelong glance at what they call knockoffs, but let’s be fair – with any piece of art there’s always only one original, and it’s probably in a museum somewhere.

It’s true that there is meaning in provenance, and in honoring the original designer’s manufacturing business, but at some point mass production is inevitable and acceptable.

So! That means even the most famous furniture and décor pieces eventually fall within our reach.

Famous Statement Pieces

Normally, a coffee table or accent chair might not qualify as a statement piece, but when it’s a famous design it can add just the right amount of pop to your look.

Now, the only question is – what’s so famous out there that people are going to recognize it? Here are a few designs that might look familiar …

Sputnik Chandelier“Sputnik” Light (Gino Sarfatti, 1950s) – Historians are not in total agreement that Sarfatti created this popular lighting design, but there are no other serious contenders and such a famous look deserves an origin story.
