The Story
Since Green Bird Press is based out of a mid-century modern house I felt the need to honor one of the great design teams of the twentieth century with our first collection. So I created magnesium plates featuring silhouettes based on the well-known furniture designs of Charles and Ray Eames. I'm finally getting around to expanding this and creating designs inspired by other famous Mid-Century designers.

This is George Nelson and Irving Harper's Marshmallow Sofa, designed in the 1950's. Its whimsical design is made from 18 10-inch round cushions that are arranged so that they seem to float on air, rather than on the tubular steel frame. My inspiration for this design came from the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art in Denver which has a bright orange version of this seat on display.

Cards are printed on 100lb Pop Tone card stock made by The French Paper Company, one of the last small independently run paper mills in America. French Paper produces many wonderful papers and is extremely environmentally friendly, which makes us happy.

If you are interested in purchase more than the listed quantity please send me a convo, I often have more in stock but if I don't I can let you know when I'll have more printed and ready to ship and we can put together a custom order.
