Patricia “Patti” Kagan, aka mrspk, a native Houstonian, grew up in an “atomic ranch” style home, furnished with iconic mid-century modern furniture. mrspk’s current modern home in Houston has been carefully curated by utilizing mid-century vintage modern pieces from mrspk’s childhood home as part of the design process. While acquiring vintage 20th century modern furniture for a vacation home in Colorado, Kagan was inspired to turn her passion of collecting these historic design treasures into a business now located on Colquitt, “gallery row,” in the Upper Kirby District, Houston. Houston, to Kagan, is the “Emerald City” where all things are possible and the inspiration for the name, mrspk&oz, came from the belief that Houston is Kagan’s “Oz,” where if you are talented and work hard, all things are possible!
“Mid-Century Modern” has become a “catch-all” phrase to describe several different movements during the 1940s-1970s. Other movements within the Mid-Century Modern design period are “Hollywood Regency/ Hollywood Glam,” Scandinavian and Danish Modern, Biomorphic, “Op Art,” “Space Age” and “Pop Art,” “Italian Modern Glam and so many more”.
