Had a lovely visit today with Kate who takes care of the Machine Age Modern store on Queen St East in Toronto. Whenever I’m in Leslieville, I like to drop in and look at the bits’n’pieces of my life they have in the store – beautiful teak dining suites, low’n’lean teak credenzas (or as we called them in Oz “buffets”), streamlined couches, oversized lamps – all referred to as “mid-century modern”… and considering I’m of the “Mad Men” generation, I guess that’s me, too.

Check these out….see if you remember any of these domestic treasures:
