Our good friend Chris had a small snippet about his home published in the latest Inside Out Magazine. It is always so exciting when someone you know is in one of these magazines.
Chris is an avid mid century chair collector. He concentrates on mainly Australian furniture with a smattering of English and Danish design interspersed into the mix.

Chris's home is a testament to the value of saving Brisbane's mid century houses. When he and his partner, Susan, bought the modernist house a few years ago, the previous owners had done a poorly thought out Tuscan renovation. Remember when it was all the rage in the 90s?
Anyway, the house looked like sh*t. And a few people thought they were mad to buy the house at the time.
Fast forward to now, you'd never know there had been anything remotely Tuscan desecrating the highly modern home. Although some of the original features could not be reinstated, the home is now a better reflection of the architect's intent when it was originally built in 1961.
