Charles & Ray Eames documentary now online!

Watch Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter on

Last month, the Mimomito staff was lucky enough to join SacMod and AIACV for their screening of Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter. Well, no need to purchase or wait for PBS to run it again, it is now online for your viewing pleasure! So pull a couch up to your computer, don’t get any popcorn in your keyboard, and enjoy!

Here are some photos from SacMod and AIACV’s screening.
It was a packed house! And Ian of SacMod surprised us all with a Skype session with the Eames’ grandson, Eames Demetrios. He told us a bit about his Grandmother Ray, and what a sunny and wonderful person she was. It was a great way to begin the documentary.

Herman Miller lent some comfortable seating for the show.

If you’re interested in more screenings and movies, follow SacMod on Facebook! This month, January 22nd, is INFINITE SPACE: The Architecture of John Lautner. Hope to see you there, too!

Deco the Halls

6 Dec

Oohweee, I was definitely like a kid in a candy shop at this year’s Deco the Halls.  I spent the first 15 minutes running back and forth from booth-to-booth ogling so many delightful goodies, and after I settled down we decided to start from one side of the building to the other to make sure nothing would be missed.

First of all, you guys would be proud that I arrived to this show using public transportation. I’m becoming quite the experienced BART rider.

I met this fella who creates the awesome clocks in the background of the photo. Check him out at

Next we bumped into a Scout Living dealer named Ron. He rules. The photo above and the four below are of his shared space with a fella named Joel.

This awesome table had one more chair that was being used.

This is a funky boomerang table. Ron thought it looked like a paint palette and I thought it looked like an oven mitt.


I think this handsome fella was pretending to be an Ikea shopper. They like to think long and hard about their purchases.

This is Dennis’s space. He’s from Chico and his stuff is beautiful.

Furniture-wise, I happened to mostly love the stuff that my friends brought. There were some really beautiful Heywood Wakefield pieces, but I was a little nervous to take photos.

Bradbury and Bradbury were also there with their fantastic wall paper. I’ve been meaning to write about them for ages. Soooo good!

Deco the Halls 2011

2 Dec

Today my friend Ron reminded me that he would be selling at Deco the Halls. I’m stoooooked that he did because I just happen to have plans to be in SF this weekend. I’ll snap some photos for those of you who can’t make it. :)

Happy Leftover Day!

We were all too busy stuffing our faces to do posts, and now is the time of recovery. We’ll be back soon with fun posts and more stuff to look at! In the meantime, here is an adorable picture of Rose and a few pugs lounging on my couch with some post-feast remorse and sleepiness..
