What could be more fun than roaming through a life-size version of your potential living room, bedroom, or kitchen? During the late 1920s, Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, Jordan Marsh, Marshall Field, Mandel’s and other department stores throughout the United States teamed with european and American modernist designers to create exhibitions that featured in-store replicas of modern home interiors. The elaborate settings presented modern furnishings and decorative objects to the public in a completely new and enticing way. 

Selling Good Design: Promoting the Early Modern Interior is an illustrated lecture that describes how modern design, especially art deco, was introduced to the press and the public through the patronage of prestigious and trend-setting department stores.

Marilyn Friedman is an art historian. She is a graduate of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
