It wasn't a bad mailbox, it just didn't look right next to all the mid-century modern stuff.
Most of the mid-century mailboxes we considered were from Chiasso. The Postino mid-century mailbox (or Post mailbox as Chiasso calls it) was the number one contender for a while, but after seeing it in person it was a little too small for us. Eventually we landed on the Parcel mailbox as the perfect new mid-century modern mailbox for our home.
And really adds a nice pop of silver to a fairly white area of the front porch.
Before replacing the mailbox, I used to come every night and not even notice the front porch. Now, as I walk up to the front door, I think, "That's a good looking porch." Sometimes it's those small final touches that bring everything together into one good-looking package.
