BOOK IT: the wright stuff

i've always admired russel wright. his "american modern" dinnerware was first introduced in 1939 and is fab! i kick myself for not collecting vintage pieces while here in ohio. 

since i'm always on the hunt for fun decorating + entertaining ideas, his 1950 "guide to easier living" (reissued in paperback) is on my list!

i also would love to visit the russel wright design center in manitoga, new york. (how cool that they held summer camps for kids!)

ever so hip then and now, so wright.

p.s. if you happen to be heading to san francisco, check out the traveling "russel wright at home: modern lifestyle design exhibit" in the united terminal at SFO. on display through november, i can't wait to see it!
