Marshmallow chic

Added on by Natalie Grasso.

Snapped this photo at the Herman Miller booth last fall at NeoCon East. Loved her black flats. Just yesterday, I came across an old Metropolis article that dishes more details on Nelson & Company, who designed the sofa for Herman Miller in 1956. Turns out the woman in the photo was George Nelson's receptionist (according to Metropolis, "The office was straight out of Mad Men, with men in crisp white shirts and ties, and the few women in black dresses—cigarette smoke everywhere, classical music in the background..."), and the Marshmallow Sofa's designer, Irving Harper, "cooked up" his first model with a small metal frame and a checkers set. Inspiration everywhere!
