On Drama

La Renommée de l'Agriculture Statue
La Renommée de l'Agriculture - Gustave Frederic Michel

As anyone who’s read a design blog in the past decade knows, there is a strong and verbal crowd out there that voraciously suckles at the teat of Mid-Century Modernism. And while STUDY loves Mid-Century in all its incarnations - be it Brutalist, New Formalist or even Googie - we're more than a little pleased that Mid-Century is finally loosening its choke hold on the design community... or that the masses have finally stopped sucking.

A New Way to STUDY

Here at STUDY we try to be all things to all people very specifically true to ourselves. We've come to find that this is a pretty solid motto to live by and translates to all facets of life, not least of all, design. Simply put, going with what you know/love and not getting bamboozled by trends lays the groundwork for homes, spaces and art that stand the test of time. This is a design philosophy we've tried to exemplify here and one that we hope will translate into our new online venture: STUDY, by way of tumblr.
