Last week I had a chance to sneak away to Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) at lunchtime. Located across the street from the High Museum, this little gem is a lot of fun to visit. Another bonus – the receptionist told us that movie stars are constantly walking by and she’s seen Owen Wilson riding his bike out front on several occasions. A single membership is only forty bucks and they have fun events in the evening all the time.

“Recess in the City” by Willem Stear and Didi Dunphy

The current exhibition, The South’s Next Wave, is also a competition. Interior/set designers and object designers paired up to create vignettes. Visitors receive a ballot and get to vote.

As I rounded the corner to check out “Darkly, Deeply, Beautifully Blue,” by cg creative interiors and Lisa Humphreys, I could swear I smelled frosting. Sure enough, several of the odes to Marie Antoinette were cake, including the tall corseted column in the middle and the pillow with the shoes on top:


In “Energy Required” by Thom Borwn and Michael Kress, the vibrant color of heavy duty extension cords provide a dynamic backdrop for Kress’s boat and chair.

In “Fashion in Captivity” by Michel Boyd, Maken Imcha, Christian Harris and Caroline Mae Heidenreich, frills, swag, draping and scale create drama. Check out the way the folds in the drapes contrast with the malachite wallcovering.

“Sound Lounge” by Michael Habachy and Peter Soloman is a space I think Prince would love. If Memorex cassettes were still a thing, this would be a perfect set for their commercial.

Yes, the swing outside is decorative AND functional!

    It seems that you really have a wonderful time visiting the MODA Becky, we will be going to Atlanta next week and I hope I have ample time to take a peek in that museum.
