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.
Chelsea and Bill Mertz really liked this 1/1 proof artwork even though it was worn and had several upper tears. They had it mounted and framed and are displaying it in their Falls Church home where it has new life complimenting both vertical and clerestory windows in their public spaces.
Daniel and Juliet Patterson in near West End purchased the Danish Rasmus Rosewood table because it had a smaller profile for ordinary use but which could extend to sit as many as ten persons when wanted or needed.
Lynn Munson who owns Great Minds in Richmond, wanted the Saarinen Womb Chair and Ottoman for her beach house because it’s great for relaxing away from work.
Gay and Norman Leahy are long time clients who are drawn to unusual pieces for their Near West End home. Gay was thrilled to find a spot for David Adjaye’s ‘Skeleton Chair’ because his chair design mimics DC intersecting and converging streets.
Kevin Greene, who lives in Richmond, stopped by one day and saw this little Danish ’Egg Chair’ in the window and fell in love. Kevin had been looking for a chair for a while and had not found one in the right size. He had a very specific place in his living room where this chair would fit perfectly.
Z Ingram recently moved to Richmond from NY. She immediately fell in love with the 1970s Pucci Mannequin. Z felt sculptural mannequin would add an interesting presence in her living space.
Joyce and Richard Tabor live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Joyce fell in love with this Hauser Hoop Rocker. She was delighted to learn that although the chair is modern in design, it’s very comfortable and has a soothing rocking motion.
Liam Lyne purchased this Danish teak desk designed by Nanna Ditzel for his home office in The Fan. He thought the desk was beautiful and practical. Liam appreciated the large surface area which can accommodate a lap top, files and more.
Jeremy Eley’s first love is very specific vintage BMWs. This Eames RAR, however, appealed to both his aesthetic and how beautifully useful the rocker actually is. The RAR is one of Jeremy’s few, prized possessions in his home in Whitestone, Virginia.
Carl and Lisa Shawler of Mechanicsville found the pair of Coalesse Lounge Chairs very attractive and surprisingly comfortable. They were sure the chairs would fit in nicely in their living room with other pieces.
