Paul László at your table: 1954 design in table linens
Looking for some midcentury inspiration for your holiday table? How about a 1954 Paul László textile design that's part of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Pacific Standard Time exhibit, “California Design, 1930–1965: Living in a Modern Way”? As Adam Tschorn reports on our sister blog All the Rage, Los Angeles-based loungewear label Bedhead Pajamas has collaborated with the museum to create the table linens as well as T-shirts, pajamas and boxer shorts. Tschorn writes that the pieces are available through the LACMA gift shop and Bedhead’s store on 3rd Street in L.A. Check out the All the Rage post on the László design for more details.
And if you haven't yet seen the LACMA show, go. The textiles in the show are fantastic, as is the re-creation of the Eames living room. For a preview, Times photographer Bryan Chan created a time-lapse video of the Eames move. Over several weeks, Chan captured LACMA's art handlers as they packed up the belongings of Charles and Ray Eames in their landmark Pacific Palisades house and installed the contents of the living room in a full-scale replica at the museum.
