SUMMER IS IN THE AIR!

The summer issue of Modern In Denver is here! Featuring not one, but two covers, the summer 2016 issue is our biggest one yet. Inside, you’ll find stories on modern architecture from residential to commercial, featuring Charles Deaton’s Key Savings and Loan Association building, a look at the interior design of OtterBox, a spotlight on the “Women of Abstract Expressionism” exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, street art transformed into macarons, and an architectural travel guide to New York City. But there’s more! This issue is particularly important, as it includes a preview of Denver Design Week—an eight-day showcase of architecture, interiors, technology and design coming to Colorado July 8-15. Join us during DDW to celebrate good design and in the meantime, enjoy the issue! Take a sneak peek below and find a copy at one of 300+ retail locations to see it all!
