As you're picking your furniture out of an IKEA catalog, sitting in your "Modern" home, pecking away at your Apple whatever, planning on painting every room in your house cocoa brown and powder blue, I'd like to point out to you that I've seen all your design motifs already, and that Delmer Wilson, our favorite Shaker brother, was alive and working in Sabbathday Maine when this industrial film was made in 1958. Which means my Shaker reproductions are more modern than your "Modern" style stuff.
Sippican Cottage Furniture. More modern than your MacBook Air. Just less "Modern."
