American Modern

Russel Wright is an icon of mid century industrial design. Perhaps most known for his dinnerware, he designed furniture and other housewares as well. Wright brought modernism into the average American home, often via the family dinner table. Take a look at the sophisticated color palette and graceful forms of his “American Modern” dinnerware by Steubenville. I am also picturing some items from his “Iroquois” line and other unmarked Wright pieces. Although produced from the 1930’s to late 1950’s, these pieces look anything but outdated.
