Moderne Living

01_3356_M Habersham Moderne Coffee Table With Glass Top Ends and Antique Mirror BaseInspired by the Art Moderne architectural style that emerged in the 1930s, our new Moderne Coffee Table design can lend a contemporary accent to today’s home. With antique mirror at its base and sides, this design will add a  sense of space and elegance to any room.  A glass top adds an elegant touch.  Shown in Habersham’s Warm Silver finish.

Also known as Streamline Modern, the Art Moderne, style was known for curves and horizontal lines.  A quick visit to Wikipedia offers up these interesting tidbits about the style:

As the Great Depression  of the 1930s progressed, Americans saw a new aspect of Art Deco—i.e., streamlining, a concept first conceived by industrial designers who stripped Art Deco design of its ornament in favor of the aerodynamic pure-line concept of motion and speed developed from scientific thinking. Cylindrical forms and long horizontal windowing also may be influenced by constructivism.  As a result an array of designers quickly ultra-modernized and streamlined the designs of everyday objects. Manufacturers of clocks, radios, telephones, cars, furniture, and many other household appliances embraced the concept.

The style was the first to incorporate electric light into architectural structure. In the first-class dining room of the SS Normandie, fitted out 1933–35, twelve tall pillars of Lalique glass, and 38 columns lit from within illuminated the room. The Strand Palace Hotel foyer (1930), preserved from demolition by the Victoria and Albert Museum during 1969, was one of the first uses of internally lit architectural glass, and coincidentally was the first Moderne interior preserved in a museum.

Habersham Custom Kitchen Cabinetery  Integrated Refrigeration and MoreFor Donna Allen, home design isn’t a process, but a passion.  Working closely with husband Dave, she designs home interiors and exteriors for their building/renovation projects. Whether it’s a spec home or a room project, Donna oversees every element of the design process – from wrought iron exterior accents to cabinetry crown molding.

The duo has worked with Habersham on a number of projects and when it came time to build their own home, they planned to use it in one room…and just kept going.

“We fell in love with Habersham when we first saw it some years ago in a designer showroom.  It’s a company that truly ‘gets it’ about furniture.  The pieces are well made, dovetailed and fitted – a time-honored design,” says Donna. “I had a design in mind before I even started working on this home and Habersham perfectly reflected my vision.”

This month, we’re pleased to showcase the Allen’s home on our website.  Click here to read the  full article and to see the home design.
