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.
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.
Saarinen tulip stools and Jens Risom chairs were the perfect addition to the Milo Baughman wood and chrome table
Katie Benson purchased for her midcentury home in Westham. Additionally, the table surface was large enough for
Taylor and Isabelle to assemble Leggos or draw masterpieces or just have snacks.
He may be a techie extraordinaire, but Marshall Thompson also has a deep appreciation of dovetailed drawers
and solid wood construction when buying pieces for his condo in Scott's Addition. He loves this Danish teak
case piece because the wood is aged, the drawer pulls are sensible and he can store tons of t-shirts while having
a beautiful piece of furniture to admire. Marshall thinks that's a bargain!
