Collecting the Modern Classics of the Future; Dec. 14 Event at RCKNDY

Mid-Century modern design is high demand, but what modern designs of today will be must-have classics 50 years from now?

Architect Lisa Roberts, a design consultant for the Cooper Hewett Museum of Design and author of Antiques of the Future, will discuss collecting current 21st century design Dec. 14 at modern decor store RCKNDY on U Street.

Lisa will bring with her and highlight items for sale in the store that she feels will have value in the future. Roberts’ looks for “mass-produced products that are being created today that, once they are no longer in production, will significantly go up in value because they represent noteworthy design in their time.” Following the discussion, Roberts will sign her book. Wine and finger food will be provided.

Here are the details. See you there.
