Even if you have a more than passing interest, there’s always something new to learn about Mid Century design. Florida-based illustrator and designer Jen Renninger has produced a bit of a history lesson with her Modern Design Deck: Home Furnishing Icons From the First Half of the 20th Century. Have a look at the full card deck and you’ll probably be surprised by how many chairs you recognise – now the challenge is to remember all those designers’ names!

The full deck is available in Jen Renninger’s Etsy shop, along with separate prints of each image.
