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.
Angelica Rosales ( on the left) wanted to have friends drop by her Fan home for casual patio dinners but had nowhere
to sit them. She fell in love with the Danish Teak Patio Set, saying "I can have an outdoor dining and entertainment area
for friends like Nina and her husband Abraham to visit, relax and enjoy leisurely meals and talk "-- especially when they
come from Philadelphia just to see Angelica.
John - Lawrence Smith, publisher of Cape Fear's Virginia Living has exquisite taste in his love of Italian suits, 18th century English and Virginia antiques. He also loves very fine Mid Century pieces. In refurbishing Cape Fear's public and reception spaces, John - Lawrence wanted a clean, bright and energized environment. The Italian glass and chrome campaign table in the reception area complements the Corbusier sofa and chairs in the waiting area. Cutty and Rex, spaniels par excellence, have given their nod of approval as well-- Mid Century goes beautifully with everything they wear.
Japanese Rosewood utensils are like a siren's song--especially to people like Sonya Clark, Craft & Material Chair
@ VCU. Sonya especially loves the beautiful craftsmanship and fluid lines of the rosewood serving pieces she
selected not for every day use but purely for visual enjoyment.
An object of desire can percolate for a long time and eventually turn into an acquisition. Blair Christopher,
is a genuis at web design. Blair always liked Eames pieces and was determined to have the Lounge and Ottoman
as his first acquisition. His aesthetic finds Charles Eames to compute beautifully. Eames is also in perfect harmony
with his wife Tiffany's notion of relaxation in their Short Pump home.
