We’re very excited to be sponsoring this year’s Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour–the May 18 event features 7 homes, including Eichler homes from the 1950s, a 1970 Carter Sparks/Streng Home and lots more. Aside from the famous architecture, we love getting a peek into some of the area’s most gorgeous homes, many of them impeccably designed and featuring iconic mid-century modern lighting and furniture.
While this is a home tour, there’s much more to be seen throughout the event. A Vintage Transportation show will also take place, and the tour includes the interiors of several special, not-often-seen mid-century modern buildings in the area. There’s also a free screening of a film about Eichler Homes — “People in Glass Houses” by Monique Lombardelli of Modern Homes Realty in collaboration with Kyle Chesser.
If you aren’t in the area, fear not–we’ll be sharing lots of photos on Instagram (follow us @lumensdotcom), and you can always get your MCM fix with our friends at Sacramento Modern, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, preserving and protecting modern art, architecture and design in the Sacramento region.
And if you are in the area, be sure to get your tickets ASAP–advance sales only run through May 15, and attendance is limited, so there’s no guarantee that tour-day tickets will be available.
Hope to see you there!
