About

The who, what and why…

Modern is more than a design aesthetic. It’s a state of mind. Our state.

Meet Modern In Denver magazine. We celebrate modern design and living in Colorado. But we balk at the walls of limitation that a title constructs! We’re much more than a magazine. MID is also a platform for discussing and exploring outside-the-box ways of living that are inspired by modern design and practices.

And just what is modern?

Well, we heard an ugly rumor that modern design connotes a cold and sterile environment. That particular brand of modern certainly may exist. But we’re friends with the type that greets you at the door with your house slippers and an honest mix of materials and methods. Modern can be comfortable, and we’re here to show you how.

We think good design can be an integral part of real life right here in Denver. In fact, we’ve seen it. And we want to tell you about it. We find it important to connect the designs we feature to the particulars of our place, our community, and the people in it. This makes it real, practical and possible for great modern design to become part of your life.

We know you’re a discerning crowd. That’s why we’re committed to printing more than just pretty pictures. We bring you interesting, intelligent articles crammed full of qualified resources. We show you how real people create and live in honest-to-goodness modern places around the corner and maybe even right next door. We spotlight architects, designers, artists and entrepreneurs right here in our own backyard.

But it’s a big planet! MID also introduces our local audience to a worldview of design, architecture and lifestyle that we hope will influence and enrich our evolving community. We profile international designs and designers for your inspiration. We report on the latest products and methods introduced at trade shows around the world.

And the best part? You can join, contribute, get involved, network, learn, create, and discuss. It’s a platform. It’s a new community.

It’s MODERN IN DENVER. ENJOY.
