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.
Linda and Michael Drake are settling into their Floyd Street home and eager to add fine mid century pieces to their own collection being shipped from England. They absolutely loved a pair of Nanna Ditzel dressers which they needed for storage in their newly refurnished bedroom. Linda simply liked the look and ample storage of these very rare Nanna Ditzel dressers which don’t take up a lot of room but still look fabulous.
Both Tanja Softic and Gary Shapiro are pleased their remodel is somewhat completed they can now turn their attention to dinner and conversation with friends. With that in mind, they especially liked the aesthetic and utility of a Danish teak extension table which will suit their dining room space in their Grace Tree house but also open to seat a larger group.
While visiting her mother and grandmother in Richmond, Heather Harris came into Metro Modern looking for some dining chairs for her home in Alexandria, Virginia. She sent photos of four Swedish chairs which also appealed to her husband Chris McDermott. They were both pleased the chairs exactly complemented their dining table.
Margaret Meehan and Noah Simblast moved to Richmond from Dallas. They needed a dining table in their new home. As members of VCU Art Faculty, their aesthetic was particularly drawn to the Finn Juhl Diplomat Model 540 Dining Table. They required a dining table great for personal use and entertaining and also satisfy their sense of form and beauty.
Eric and Rachel Gable wanted the Paul McCobb Pagoda Sofa for their Richmond Fan home because of its clean-lined styling and high comfort. And Eric’s beautiful and well behaved best friend was in full agreement!
Although Tim Walters moved into a smaller space in Richmond’s Jackson Ward, he fell in love with the Eames Screen. He became determined to find a place to showcase and enjoy the screen and decided to eliminate some other piece for the space because he thought the screen was so beautiful.
Kelley Banks liked the shape and size of the Drexel van Koert Walnut Credenza. She liked the credenza’s designed storage capacity and thinks it will fit nicely into her Richmond Church Hill home.
Lillian Moss travels extensively for work and wants to return to a serene and appealing home when she returns to Alexandria, Virginia. The Kjaernulf dining table and chairs were the perfect additions to her entertainment space because they don’t take up a lot of room but the table does expand for extra seating when needed.
Ashley and Faisal Khan drove from North Carolina to come see the Wormley sofa. As they looked around the store, they also fell in love with the artisan coffee table and Eames Screen and some small decorative accessories. They felt they had made a great start to furnishing their living room!
Owning an Eames Rosewood Lounge and Ottoman was a long sought acquisition for Graham Hudgins. Being tall, he immediately sat in the Eames Lounge and found it surprisingly comfortable for his tall frame. He is going to thoroughly enjoy having the Eames in his Washington, DC home.
