Being a fan and collector of mid-century modern design, I am always on the lookout for new interpretations and expressions of furniture of the period. I recently learned of a collection of prints titled Modern Chairs, by artist Ali Douglass. Originally created as paintings, Ali has released prints of her work documenting these iconic furniture pieces. I find her artwork to be bold and lively. Just the thing to freshen up a space with some classic modern design.
Ali Douglass is a talented illustrator. Her work can be found in books, magazines, newpapers, greeting cards, advertising, and most recently a board game. She has an extensive and impressive client list including The New York Times, American Girl, and Martha Stewart to name but a few. Her artwork is highly stylized and recognizable, and more often than not uses vibrant color and bold graphic gestures. Her subjects are varied, and she conveys the spirit of her work equally as well working on chairs as well as people.
