Design Icon: Architect Eero Saarinen

Bold curves, colorful accents and technical vision: Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen’s body of work represents Modernism’s playful side in bloom. His iconic buildings, from the Gateway Arch to the Miller House, helped symbolize America’s buoyant post-Cold War period, and often looked as streamlined and glamourous as the jets taxiing in front of one of his greatest creations, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport.

Stylish Modern Housewares from Finell

Designer Rebecca Finell debuted an impressive new line of tabletop items and decorative accessories at NY Now this week. Her eponymous line, Finell Co., includes stylish, functional, and forward-looking items geared towards entertaining: serving pieces, runners, place mats, storage vessels, trays, and more. Every item boasts a refined, modern sensibility and goes a step further in that they’re durable and highly-functional. Finell cut her teeth in the design industry at Boon, a modern baby products company she founded in the mid 2000s. Taking the knowledge she gained about materials and product development, she created Finell with the goal of housewares that work for busy home entertainers. What she noticed from a lot of modern housewares is that they often looked to the midcentury for inspiration. “I didn’t want to do a ‘me too’ version of things,” she says. “I wanted to think about what’s next instead of looking back.” Here’s a peek at a few items in the collection.
