Post Magazine Highlights Mid-Century Modernism in D.C.

Still getting over some jet lag from my trip overseas, but the Post magazine’s extensive cover story this past weekend has helped perk me up. The effort to highlight mid-century modernism here in Washington got a nice boost with Annie Groer‘s piece about the updating of the home of the late modern architect David Condon.  Condon, who worked for Charles Goodman and was part of the firm of Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon that designed Carderock Springs among other modern communities, designed the article’s featured home in Chevy Chase for his family in 1965. Groer’s sidebar, “The Mod Squad: Local Resources for MCM fans,” notes my real estate efforts and work on this site and showcases a number of MCM furniture dealers, including three Modern Capital sponsors, Home Anthology and Millennium Decorative Arts and Modernicus.
