Glorious glorious eye candy and green birds this week!
I spent Wednesday morning at Seattle's Nordic Heritage Museum checking out their Josef Frank exhibit (showing through February 19 - highly recommended if you're in the area! :)). Frank was a Austrian designer who, in the 1930s and 40s, helped pioneer Swedish Modern design (which is a genre, I learned :)).
They showed both textiles he'd designed and some of his furniture. I immediately fell in love with his use of color and the whimsy of how nature inspired his designs. Of course birds should be green and vegetables should grow from trees! Green Birds and Hawaii are my favorites. Which ones are yours? Comment below!

I love the dresser too- the handles, the different drawers! Makes me want to take up woodworking! :)
The couch is so beautiful! I think my favorite is the dresser. I’ve never seen anything like it!
Hooray! Wouldn’t a couch like that be fabulous? :)
I <3 the couch and Vegetable Tree!
