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.
These Poul Kjaerholm PK71 Tables made their was across the pond to Stockholm, Sweden. Bo Lindstroem already owned the Poul Kjaerholm PK22 pair of chairs and found the PK71 tables on our website. He thought the tables would make excellent chair companions. He sent this photo to show how the tables looked in his living room. We love Bo's aesthetic!
Lori Loomis bought these two Paul McCobb Planner Group dining chairs to complete a set she and her husband, Greg, already owned. Her son, Owen, immediately took ownership of his chair which will go into their Southside dining room.
The Picasso 1970s litho looked sooooooo cheerful. Katie Ukrop, who owns Quirk where she showcases wonderful art and artisan crafts, couldn't resist it. Katie bought the quirky Picasso for her home in the Fan. Her daughter, Flora, thought it was ok too.
For a relaxing chair, Avery Sefcik's uber design style found this Geoffrey Harcourt F 511 Lounge Chair totally to his taste in size, shape and fabric. The lounge chair swivels, is supremely comfortable, and happily fits the space in his West End home.
With a new job and a small new living space in Williamsburg to furnish, Marta Marcopulos's great sense of style was focused on beautifully spare pieces for her home. She selected a Florence Knoll Parallel Settee, Danish Rosewood Nesting Tables and a fabulous Milo Baughman Lounge Chair. Once all the the furniture was in place, she was ready to entertain.
Ducks, geese and other fowl intrigue and fascinate Vernon and Harriet Jones who are avid collectors. They found this steel sculpture Geese in Flight by Italian artist Giachetti Puccio very appealing. The sculpture's organic wood base allows for prominent display in their West Point home.
A clean-lined Milo Baughman Desk is just what Joleen Westerdale thought her Norfolk condo needed. The desk has plenty of room for files, papers and a computer and space left over. Joleen's cat has also found the desk to be a most excellent perch as she awaits her owner or guests.
Both Berno Hamilton and his beloved dog, Pepper, think the Palezzetti Eames Lounge and Ottoman is great relaxation in their West End home and a truly inspired gift of comfort from his wife, Laura. What a birthday treat!
The Lovig Desk appealed to both Marianne Miller and Robert Wiard in design and expandable surface space. The desk allows for storage and for computer. Additionally, the Lovig fits in a very specific area in their Southside home. How great is that for economy of proportions?
Frank Engler is a busy man--he is always doing whether he is working on web design, helping his wife Julie or taking his daughter Gigi on adventures. Frank loves certain shapes of chairs, especially this Danish chair which he wants to showcase in his Mechanicsville home.
