modernica sale and a reader giveaway.
by victoria comment



In anticipation of Modernica’s coveted Factory Sale on May 18th in Los Angeles, Modernica is hosting a giveaway for SFGirlbybay readers! During their one-day sale event in L.A., you’ll have a rare chance to purchase a full range of products at 20% – 70% off, and if you can’t make the sale, Modernica will be having a sale online as well from Friday May 17th –Sunday, May 19th with 15% Off site-wide, including clearance items with the code: FactorySale. Some Select Vintage Items are also available!


So to celebrate their big sale, Modernica is giving away one of their gorgeous small white Case Study Planters! their design originated during the highly prolific period in architecture and home furnishing designs immediately following WW2. The new designs promoted a new attitude towards incorporating your home with a modern lifestyle and the object itself functioned as a direct reflection of the home owner’s aesthetic. It was this combination of the aesthetic purity of Modernism with the idea of good design for all that launched the planter’s massive appeal into popular culture.


As an important part of this lineage, Modernica’s Case Study Planters are pure and elegant in form. Their bowl shapes are available in two sizes and in two matte colors: charcoal and white.


To win the Modernica Small White Case Study Ceramic Bowl With Black Metal Stand, simply:

• hop on over to modernica’s Facebook page and “like” their page by thursday, may 16th.

• comment back here letting us know you ‘liked’ their facebook page to enter to win.

• as always, be sure to leave a way to reach you via twitter, facebook, email or your website.

• we’ll announce a winner on my twitter account and on modernica’s facebook page the week of may 20th, so be sure and follow us.

• sorry, but this time the giveaway applies to U.S. residents, only.


• this post in partnership with Modernica. all opinions are my own.
