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 Portsmouth 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”.
