Arts & Architecture magazine introduced the Modern Case Study House Program in 1945 that ran intermittently until 1966. The idea was to partner with prominent Architects such as Richard Neutra, Charles Eames, Pierre Koening, and Eero Saarinen, among others to design 36 experimental prototype home plans. These homes were designed to meet specific directives. They were to be constructed using American manufactured materials, efficiently built and easily replicated to formulate price-accessible, post-war residential neighborhoods of the future. The project started in California but the architecture trend subsequently stretched across America.
Linear rooflines, vaulted beamed ceilings, and expanses of glass became signatures of the Mid-Century Modern design movement. Suburban neighborhoods with larger lot sizes accommodated more expansive floor plans. Allowing homes to have an open flow and minimalist feel.
Our customer, Marie recently completed a full remodel of her 1958 Mid Century Modern home in Illinois. She searched her entire city for new floor registers but couldn't find exactly what she was looking for. All it took was an internet search for "Modern Floor Registers" and she found us at kulgrilles.com!
Marie chose kul grilles anodized clear finish vent covers. Wow! They look outstanding in the space!
Now that the renovation is complete, Marie is ready to furnish her home with iconic pieces reminiscent of the era. The eye-catching sunburst clock and smart clean lined etagere bookcase show Marie is off to a fabulous start!
