Modern Furniture rooted in the Classic

 Eileen Gray's bibendum chair
As a designer I appreciate all kinds of furniture from very traditional to modern and contemporary ones.  My lovely mother-in-law, whose taste is more contemporary, once told me "you don't like modern" and my response was "I like modern furniture with classical reference."
We find comfort in what we know and/or we can relate to, so these types of furniture which are modern but have been around for over half a century are the kinds that offer an incredible balance between tradition and modern.  Here are my absolute favorites.  Enjoy!
