It was a time when the modern design movement blew the lid off conventional with exuberance in form and color, and with creativity expressed through revolutionary materials and execution.

Newly developed technologies allowed a freedom of design previously impossible. A cantilevered chair in stainless steel with no apparent support structure, a bentwood-style rocking chair executed completely in Lucite, lamps made of coral, cork, plastics and chrome, entire dining tables in stone and brass – whatever designers conceived could be produced.

A robust economy fed the appetite for innovative design that was well executed. A mod squad of high end shops and adventurous interior designers embraced the creation of a fab environment with a lot of glam, and a dash of pop.

Calderwood 2 heralds this renaissance of imagination and creativity. Brought to you by The Calderwood Family – of Philadelphia’s world-class Calderwood Gallery.
