Modern and Young: A Furniture-Filled Living Room in Los Feliz

“We literally had no furniture so we were starting from scratch,” says actor Adam Campbell of the recently renovated Los Feliz abode he shares with wife and fellow actress Jayma Mays from our Furniture Issue. “We thought: Let’s give it a go ourselves, and if it looks disastrous then we’ll think about using an interior designer.” The young couple's living room is the best reflection of their burgeoning furniture collecting skills—a cool mix of high and low: vintage and contemporary furniture, design-shop purchases, and internet finds fill the space, such as a mid-century Danish sofa, square blocked rug by Scholten & Baijings for Hay, and a long wooden table. To the right, a Plugged Pendant lamp from Muuto hangs above a white legged Pure dining table from CB2, while tubular steel side chairs from Danish Modern L.A. and Verner Panton chairs found on, you guessed it, Craigslist, graciously await a fluttering of guests. As Mays says, “I feel that our furniture reflects the marriage of both old and new and hopefully does so with a bit of levity and color."

Vintage Furniture-Filled Prefab Living Room in Upstate New York

Built by architect William Massie nearly a decade ago for vintage retailer Greg Wooten, this hybrid prefab home in upstate New York (from our Interiors issue) is a furniture lover's dream. In the living room, a 1950s Franco Albini rattan chair, a Crate chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1934, and a 1970s padded leather sofa by Edward Axel Roffman fill the concrete-floored space. Swing to the left and a Bruno Gambone ceramic piece stands tall. “Every piece had to really matter,” says Wooten. “Most of those pieces have a story, and often that story relates to a friend or an experience. If it wasn’t something created by an artist or designer friend, it’s the one thing I brought home with me on the plane from Italy or the flea market in Tokyo.”

Mid-Century Furniture-Filled Living Room in San Rafael

"We can move out west if you can find a modern house that the furniture can go into," recollects homeowner Mark Neely after spending years collecting furniture for his apartments in Chicago and New York and taking the recent plunge settling into sunny San Rafael, California. Neely and partner Paul Kefalides' living room in their Joseph Eichler home in the Lucas Valley neighborhood from our June 'Furniture' issue is chock-full of the pair's impressive vintage finds, such as a Hans Wegner wooden Sawback chair, fur throw (albeit in need of dire repair), George Nelson's famous Ball Clock, Raymond Loewy's glossy DF-2000 cabinet, twin white floor lamps by Grta Von Nessen, and a suitably-packed cluster of Brian Willshire wooden sculptures, one of Neely’s many collections. Click here to view more of the couple's collections in their 500-plus home.

David Stone Martin's Mid-Century Jazz Prints

Few art forms felt as thoroughly modern at mid-century as jazz. And the graphics that accompanied and adorned those classic albums were often just as experimental and exuberant. Illustrator David Stone Martin was one of those innovators, and on the occasion of his centennial JAZZARTZ Gallery in Laguna Beach, California, has released scores of his cover designs for Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Stan Getz, and others as art prints. They range in size from 14 to 44-inch squares and will give an immediately retro vibe to the wall of your choosing. Martin's work is in the Met, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Smithsonian. Could your living room be next?
