We've been highlighting the Philadelphia Modern Homes Tour this week, and we've got Modern on the brain. So, it appears, does this homeowner, who has his 2-bedroom home—now on the market—truly decked out. He's got at least one Eames chair in the bedroom; a Saarinen womb chair in the living room next to a Saarinen table; a George Nelson ball clock; a couple Marcel Breuer Wassily chairs in the office; a Noguchi Prismatic table, seems like; and—could it be?—dear god, it is: a Noguchi coffee table. Also interesting to note: the Philippe Starck Ghost Chair and the Marais A Chairs in the kitchen—which are also the chairs over on Amber Street.
Now, this fellow could be a collector and enthusiast, true. In which case, well done, sir. Other possibility? His broker hired a stager who clicked onto DesignWithinReach.com (dwr.com, actually) and just bought one of everything.
