Alameda Point Antiques Faire this Sunday!

5 May

This is a fantastic, beautiful weekend to get down or out to the Alameda Faire and eat some Belgian waffles from the gourmet trucks and ogle some antiquities. Among the other regulars, some of the friends of Mimomito will also be there!! If you haven’t gone before, you really should check it out. It’s quite an experience to be on a man-made strip of land; above you only sky, on the ground — antiques as far as the eye can see.

Julian of Mid Century Mobler will be in space Y19 this Sunday – remember we showed you guys the inside of his San Francisco Danish Modern deluxe pad? If you haven’t seen it check out Julian’s Home Tour here. Be sure to also add Mid Century Mobler on facebook to get a peak their latest inventory.

Roush House: Buy your tickets, already!

2 May


Please join Sacramento Modern (SacMod) for a celebration of the Roush Residence in the Arden Oaks neighborhood of Sacramento on June 2, 2012. Reserved arrival times will be between 1pm and 5pm. Tickets will be available via Brown Paper Tickets.

– Tickets will be sold beginning April 23, 2012 for SacMod Associate Members at $30 each (members must use the correct password). To become a SacMod member, please visit SacMod’s blog and use the “2012 SacMod Annual Associate Membership” link in the upper left hand margin.
– General sales will begin May 7, 2012 at $45 each.
– There will be no tickets sold at the door. Last day for tickets sales is May 31, 2012.

Appetizers and beverages will be served and a commemorative booklet will be given to attendees. Vintage photographs and information about the home will be displayed. Local architects and design professionals will be present to discuss questions about the home. For vintage car enthusiasts, a recently restored 1956 Nash Ambassador Custom with tritone paint will be parked in the carport.

The Roush Residence was designed by Terry Waters, a Taliesin Fellow and colleague of John Lautner. Waters’ work was published in acclaimed design magazines such as Arts + Architecture and Domus. True modernists will be delighted in seeing this ultra-modern and unusual circa 1954 home.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the development of the upcoming exhibit “Ray Eames: A Century of Modern Design,” at The California Museum tentatively scheduled to open later this year. Ray Eames was born and raised in Sacramento; she and her husband, Charles, were among the most important 20th century modernists.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all, please arrive for your reserved shift on time, park in the designated areas (a specific map with detailed information will be emailed before the event) and wear flat-heeled shoes. For the homeowner’s privacy, the event address will be provided after ticket purchase.

YEAH. I just did that. I really did just put a wicker chair up in this post right now.
