We’ve been catching up on season 2 of Hannibal. Usually it’s some murderous tableau or a sumptuous cannibal meal that causes my jaw to drop, but it was the furniture featured in episodes six and seven that caught my eye recently. It had special resonance after writing a book on Mid-Century Modern furniture. We see inside a character’s apartment, and the open-plan living space is practically jammed with Mid-Century furniture. In the living room Nakashima benches and a Hans Wegner chairs flank a live-edge table. In the dining nook stand Danish modern table and chairs I can’t place.
