• Calling all Art Lovers!! Check out my new blogpost about the incredible important role that You have in either making and/or collecting art. It's not something to be taken lightly and contributes to the depth of our world. • I wrote this blog post in tribute to the recently passed #murraykoffler who founded and inspired Toronto to show and share art to everyone. He was the founder of the @toaeart and was a visionary and a disruptive ahead of his time. #makingadifference#artlives

Y’all are getting a two-for-one this week because not only is it #MidCenturyMonday , but this is an Instagram takeover. #HCgoestoDC Hello! This is Lois, HC’s Executive Assistant and resident MCM nerd. Last week, I went to DC to research South Carolina’s most prolific Modern design firm, LBC&W. The tapestry in this image is by Alexander Calder (ca. 1974). It hung in the offices of LBC&W (now the iT-ology Building) until 1977 when it was gifted to Louis Wolff’s family on the occasion of his passing. Swipe to see the tapestry (as well as the Knoll ashtrays) in the firm’s office. #midcenturymodern#calder
Columbia native and architect Louis M. Wolff (FAIA) died #OTD in 1977. Wolff was one of the founding principles of LBC&W, an architecture and design firm responsible for some of Columbia's most iconic buildings. Wolff's design portfolio included the Carolina Coliseum, Cornell Arms, the @fortjacksonpao barracks & administrative offices, the @benedict_college library, the post office on Assembly Street, the Thomas Cooper Library, and the Veteran's Administration Regional Office Building (to name a few). His designs can also be found in Georgia, Puerto Rico, North Carolina, Virginia and Washington DC. #MidCenturyMonday#MidCenturyModern#legendsofarchitecture#architects @uofsc
In keeping with this spooky season, our #MidcenturyMonday post today features the impressive MCM tower at Elmwood Cemetery. Designed by noted local architects LBC&W, it was praised as 'stand alone' in the 1982/83 SCAIA Review of Architecture and "at once working at the freeway scale and the single worshiper's scale. It accomplishes a lot with deceptive simplicity and economy of means." Image courtesy of the Russell Maxey Photography Collection at @richlandlibrary. #historyiscool#research#midcenturymodern
#MidcenturyMonday - We're rather taken by this 1924 cushion cased silver Fears. It was made in the early days of wrist watches, when the round case hadn't established its dominance. The compact design with its beautiful weight make it a pleasure to wear.
• ⏺ The cushion case is one of the most elegant shape for a watch and one sadly not seen enough today. It combines a rounded square with the circle of the dial. Very popular in the 1920s/30s they immediately have a hint of that jazz-age, Gatsby glamour to them.

#MidcenturyMonday - from a time when gents wrist watches were often under 35mm in diameter. This 1946 gents watch from the Fears Heritage Collection has a 26mm case and was designed for use by a doctor with its central seconds hand painted red for clear visibility. This small but perfectly formed watch inspired the shape (if not the size) of our Redcliff Date watch - www.fearswatches.com/redcliff •
