Mid-Century Masters

As director of the Textile Division of Herman Miller from 1952 to 1973, Alexander Girard brought a passion for ethnic motifs and extravagantly bright colors to the clean, streamlined aesthetic of mid-century modern design. His patterns and bold colors seem fresh and original in today’s market, and his once iconoclastic aesthetic continues to inspire contemporary designers and consumers. Pictured here are items still being produced as well as original work no longer in production.
