Googie Arrow (Kind Of) Featured On Apartment Therapy

A few weeks ago, I announced my new obsession with creating Googie-inspired art pieces and the completion of #001, a slightly weathered, 3 1/2-foot metal arrow, complete with chasing lights, the likes of which you might still find pointing the way to a run-down, roadside motel.

Well, the arrow made it into the hands of Minnesota resident and appreciator of midcentury design Karl Madcharo, whose exact words upon receiving said pointing device were, "It looks sweet," after which he promised to send photos once he chose an appropriate place to hang it.

Well, lucky for us, he's done more than that and has submitted photos of his entire pad to Apartment Therapy's House Tours, so we can all burn with envy over his superbly decorated and swank living quarters.

And I have to say, I think his self-built front door beats the pants off my arrow.
