Today is almost the last day of the year and I thought to highlight the Mid Century Home posts you most loved divided in five categories; a kind of Oscars of Mid-Century.
-sorry for the cheap design -
So the categories are:
1. The Most Visited Post
2. Your Favorite Architect From the Mid-Century Period
3. The Most Commented Post
4. The Most Viral Post on Facebook
5. The Mid-Century House You Liked the Most
To determine the winners I asked to my Copywriters and Marketing Team and they come back with extremely complicated analytics.
But don’t worry, I made all those figures easy for you.
So, here we are, first category: The Most Visited Post….and the winner is:
Finn Juhl has been one of the most influent designers of the Mid-Century era and the first Danish architect and designer to be known and appreciated internationally.
Check the Finn Juhl Biography to learn more about him, you can also find most of his famous products in [amazon_link id="3822841188" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Scandinavian Design[/amazon_link]; a great book that all the mid-century enthusiasts should have…and that of course I bought for myself already.
For Your Favorite Architect From the Mid-Century Period category, the winner is:
The legendary architect and designer -as Chief of the Design Department of the Herman Miller furniture company- promoted and made famous artists as Charles and Ray Eames or Isamu Noguchi.
During the golden age of mid-century design, Nelson helped to made possible furniture as the Charles and Ray Eames – ESU (Eames Storage Unit), the Charles and Ray Eames Wire Chair and The Noguchi Coffee Table.
The Most Commented Post during all 2011 is one of my favorites as well:
If you are a Mid Century Home regular reader, you probably know that I’m also a thrifter…I love to look for mid-century, and not only, treasures around second hand markets, thrift shops in Amsterdam and around Europe.
In this post I shared with you my secrets to find bargains and pay the price you want!
For the The Most Viral Post on Facebook, you shared:

Last, but not least, The Mid-Century House You Liked the Most:
Richard Neutra was one of the architects whom defined the mid-century architectural style.
In California, where he moved from Europe during the 20s, there are several houses and villas designed by Neutra. One of them risked to be demolished this year: the Kronish House.
Fortunately, Neutra’s son Dion started a campaign, that Mid Century Home sponsored as well, to save the Kronish House.
It looked almost an hopeless case but all the efforts payed back! Check what happened here.
So this is it, the very best of Mid Century Home from 2011.
