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.
As an architect and vintage car enthusiast, Donald Tate finds these Norwegian chairs to be both sculpturally beautiful and
well-constructed. His wife, Ann, is happy that the chairs are very comfortable and a perfect fit for their dining table
and for entertaining in the Far West End.
As soon as they came in, Emma Charlton and Dr. Lei Charlton immediately gravitated toward the Ligne Roset Togo Settees in the gallery. Emma defined the settees "blissful". They enjoyed the soothing and relaxing comfort so much that they felt the pieces would be perfect in their Shockoe Loft home.
Henry Roberts and his sister, Sophie Roberts lounge on Henry's Italian Day Bed. It'll reside at Three Chopt Road, in Henry's bedroom. Henry is very proud to own a piece he personally selected. He loves the Miro fabric. Henry's parents, Matt and Kathleen Roberts, graciously agree.
Justin Scott is the proud new owner of a Charles Eames Splint. It will be prominently displayed in his Churchill home. His wife, Sarah, thought to indulge him in this Eames piece as a birthday present.
Stephanie Ackermann purchased the Charles Eames table and red fiberglass shell chairs to place in her new store, Ecologic, on Main Street in The Fan. Stephanie is committed to what is sustainable and reusable, from the store's remodel to the organic product line of paints and other items she will carry at Ecologic. Her son Sam and husband Fred enthusiastically support Stephanie's philosophy.
