((((((SIGH)))))), I was onPinterest yesterday browsing 1950s/60s furniture ((((((SIGH)))))). I really could do the majority of my house in furniture from that era. Some of it does get a little crazy, but boy are there just some gorgeous, clean lines! So, of course I had to look up the definition of "Mod", where did the term come from I wondered? I knew it was a general style of the 60s but needed to know more. Here are a few defintions I found:
-An unconventionally modern style of fashionable dress originating in England in the 1960s.
-of or relating to a style of dress of the1960s, typified by miniskirts, bell-bottom trousers, boots, and bright colors and patterns. (YES, bright colors....my FAV)
-Mod began as a 1960s British youth subculture whose influence spread, in varying degrees, to other counties, such as the United States. It has been revived in later decades and continues today on a smaller scale. Focused on music and fashion, the subculture has its roots in a small group of London-based stylish young men in the late 1950s who were termed modernists because they listened to modern jazz, but later came to include female roles.
Yes, I even think these chairs are fabulous....this may not go in my home, but it is fabulous!

Well, I was brimming with inspiration after my little rendezvous with Pinterest and had to get my take on "Mod" out on to paper. Below is what I came up with, does it take you back to the 60s? Enjoy!
