Interior Design is kicking off the near year by sponsoring a retrospective of mid-century design. Cindy Allen will moderate a discussion about American modern furniture from both historical and relevant contexts.  She’s put together a great group of panelists including: Donald Albrecht, Museum of the City of New York Curator of Architecture and Design; Phyllis Ross, author of Gilbert Rohde: Modern Design for Modern Living; Gunnar Birkerts, internationally known architect; and Andy Lin and Larry Weinberg, founders of Lin/Weinberg Gallery: 20th Century Modern Furnishings. The discussion will be followed by a reception and a presentation of the exhibitions Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future and The Future at Home: American Furniture, 1940-1955, co-curated by Albrecht and Ross.

When: Wednesday, January 13, 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Where: Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Ave. at 103rd St.
