Nobody has done as much for cool, modern heart designs as textile designer, and lover of folkart,  Alexander Girard. I became a huge fan of his furniture and fabric designs when we were entrenched in making the projects for Curbly's book, Make It! MidCentury Modern. I was more than delighted to see Herman Miller's blog tribute posted yesterday about their beloved Master of Textiles. It states,

"In the 1967 Herman Miller catalog the “International Heart” is referred to as “Love Heart” and “A tribute of Love and Friendship to your wife, sweetheart, or customer."  And you could get a 15 1/2 square for a whopping $2.25. Not bad!

See the Master at work, and get a peek into his studio...
