I had the privilege of touring Kimmel Trading‘s museum worthy collection of 20th century modern furnishings today in their showroom in downtown Asheville. The curator, Mark Field, is an art and design major and was hired by Joe Kimmel to manage his collection among other things. Here is how they describe their collection on their website, “The Kimmel Collection has a rock-solid foundation on which to build, the Kimmel Collection offers a point of orientation and discussion in tracking the evolution of Modernism, which, in itself, is difficult to define. The Kimmel Collection exhibit featured wide ranging American, European and Scandinavian fine art and design spanning 100 years from 1885 to 1985.”
