Hi and happy Monday. I always feel so lucky when I get a glimpse into a designer's or artist's own home. Bo Bedre recently showed us the home of Danish designer Børge Mogensen, kept by his family as it has been since his death in 1972.Filled with his own furniture (many are early prototypes), pieces by other contemporaries of his like Kaare Klint and Poul Henningsen, and a great art and sculpture collection, it really is a very beautiful, personal, exciting, well-loved, "un"designed home. It will be sold (or recently has been - I think Bo Bedre's article is from Dec. '11) by his children because their mother and Børge's widow Alice Mogensen has recently died. Thankfully there are these photos, taken by Børge's nephew Mads Mogensen. There are other lovely photos out there too that I will post during the week.
