We are showcasing people who buy Midcentury at our store. Clients have good-naturedly consented to pose. We will periodically post photographs of buyers with their "stuff" either in the store or in their homes. You'll see folks from Richmond-- The Fan, Oregon Hill, West End, Far West End, across the river, North Side, Henrico, Goochland, Hanover, Petersburg, and north to Fairfax and down Williamsburg and Norfolk way. Our faithful keep coming back to Metro Modern to talk, to look, to make comparisons with other sources and eventually to select a keeper for a special place in their home. Half the fun is knowing who gets what, where it's going and and why. We genuinely appreciate having repeat customers and we are happy to meet new ones. We thank you. All of YOU create our success.
Items from the early glamour days of commercial flying are currently very collectible. Billy Fisher has an enviable collection of Concord, TWA and other airline objects. A Farquhar Lucite Multiple Globe from the 1960s is an item Billy Fisher will add nicely to his collection of air travel objects.
Vintage Murano studio glass pieces have become increasingly popular to display or to collect. Ed Barlow purchased these Murano Pear & Apple designed by Barbini in the 1960s as a gift. Ed liked the multiple layers of blown glass which changed in color when catching light.
Updating the living room in her Monument Avenue home became instant with a pair of Saarinen Executive Arm Chairs
from the 1950s. Gwyn Garrett liked the contemporary fabric on the linear Saarinens. She thinks the chairs make great seating and a great statement for today's living.
Lisa Moon's strong visual aesthetic dictates which Mid Century pieces share space in the home she shares with
husband, Michael Harris, in Chesterfield. Lisa is drawn to both handcrafted organic wall sculptures and edgy, metal
whimsical pieces like this Curtis Jere Chrome Paper Clip Sculpture, 1977. Lisa likes the creative tension different pieces
generate and feels they personalize her home's decor.
