A couple of you have been curious about Designed for Moderns, later called New Dimensions Furniture. That was my father's business ? his name was Archie Kaplan, and he and Sol Bloom did most of the designing. Designed for Moderns existed between (roughly) 1951 and 1954. They mostly made small pieces (candlesticks, baskets, and the best-known piece, the catch-it-all) mostly made of metal. This is the catalog, an 8 by 3.5 inch accordian fold brochure ? but the catalog doesn't include everything. I also have product sheets and photos, and I'll post more soon. There's some great stuff, and he'd be so pleased that people are still interested.
