Studio Praises Mod 1940’s Home Furnishings

LENOX, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The 1940’s brought Frank Sinatra, electric blankets, and Cheerios, but a studio in Lenox, Massachusetts, is praising the decade for its modern art and furniture.

The Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio is opening its summer season this Thursday (June 28), and exhibiting the home’s newly restored interiors and furniture all based on mod 1940’s style.

The studio was home to American abstract artists George L.K. Morris and Susie Frelinghuysen in the 1940’s, and now co-curator and family relative Linda Frelinghuysen wants to make her late in-laws proud by showing off art and furniture from their golden decade.

During the guided walk-through exhibit, art lovers can experience different furnishings by artists and designers like Paul Frankl and Donald Deskey that Frelinghuysen says add to the romance of the “1940’s Hollywood” vibe in the home.

But while the tour is highly interactive, Frelinhuysen insists precautions must be taken to ensure the safety of the art.

She explains, “You have to put little surgical booties on to come inside so nothing gets contaminated. After you do that you can enjoy an authentic trip back in time.”
