where to buy modern furniture

Posted by brano rataj at October 18. 2007

iam architect designer, originally from europe moved to denver. i was suprised how difficult is to find quality modern furniture in usa. anything that stores here claim to be modern is crap that  ruins whole meaning of this word. any pieces of originall italian furniture is so overpriced in usa that it rather makes sense to ship them from europe for the same price. is there a american company that produces furniture that can keep up with competition from europe, is not made in china, has fine details and is not overpriced?

This is America. Get used to fake leather, overstuffed couches, and Vinyl siding. ;o)

 

Aside from Ikea (modern, but 'disposable' furniture) and Design Within Reach (modern, but overpriced), you being in Denver, I think your best bet might be Room and Board:

well, it doesnt need to be in denver. i have bought a bed from innovation that meets most of my criteria via internet. ikea would be my last choice in europe but here i might just give it a shot. room and board, no thanks. oh well.

"room and board, no thanks"

 

 

Really? I'm curious as to why. They make quality stuff with a nod towards mid-century modern style.

NOT MY STYLE CONSIDERING FURNITURE. I AM MORE INTO THE STUFF THAT DESIGN WITHIN REACH SELLS. TRY THIS WEBSITE TO SEE WHAT IAM LOOKING FOR. THIS IS STORE THAT WAS NEXT TO MY HOUSE WHEN I LIVED IN EUROPE

Oh, well, I know I'm soundling like a R&B fan boy here, but FYI, R&B sells a lot of the same furniture that DWR sells as well--at least the mid-century modern pieces.

That is a nice shop you link to.

 

Some other options might be West Elm and CB2...both a step up from Ikea.

ARE WEST ELM AND CB2 ACTUAL PHYSICAL STORES IN DENVER? OR JUST WEB STORES. COULD YOU POST A LINK?

hi i will stay tuned to your site. it it too early to buy for me now. in a year or so i am buying an old house that i want to remodel for it to suit my needs. the only reason iam looking for frniture so early is the fact that when i was moving to us, rented a apartment  and wanted to buy some furniture it took me almost year to find and get what i wanted.

Have you tried www.modlivin.com ?  They are located in Denver, I think.  They have a store as well as shopping on line.  I have ordered from them and had great service. 

Re: where to buy modern furniture

CB2 is only in Chicago physically.

Not sure if West Elm has physical stores or not (though I'm sure their web site will tell you.)

One other is Blu Dot. They make some great stuff. Not sure what they offer retail-wise (though I think DWR carries some of their products).

Re: where to buy modern furniture

Posted by brano rataj at October 30. 2007

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP GUYS. I WAS ABOUT TO BUY BED FROM BLUE DOT ABOUT A YEAR AGO BUT WHEN I FINALLY DECIDED THEY DID STOP PRODUCING IT. DONT KNOW WHY AS IT WAS VERY FINE BED. ALSO I LIKE STUFF THAT MODLIVING CARIES, BUT AGAIN TOO EXPENSIVE FOR ME RIGHT NOW. ALSO SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN CARIES SOME GOOD PRODUCTS. I ACTUALLY GOT A SECTIONAL FROM THEM. GOOD LOOKING BUT QUALITY IS NOT THAT GREAT , MEANING CUSHIONS ARE SOMEHOW SHITTY .

Also, check your CAPS LOCK KEY. Looks like it's sticking on you. ;o)

One other thought is La-z-boy. Yea, not a traditional 'modern' retailer, but with Todd Oldham's line, the have some interesting products that harken to mid-century styles.

I would always look to small local furniture stores for items. They do a great job of sourcing small and new manufacturers and finding other good deals for their store.

this online store is pretty good:

http://www.modnest.com/

 

cant fault the stuff they've chosen from a style point of view.  and have ordered a few things from them so can vouch for quality.

 

includes stuff you'll find at places like DWR and room and board, but also includes a lot of cool stuff from smaller designers you wont find elsewhre. 

 

oh, and they do free shipping on ALL items - even got my sofas delivered free, so worked out even cheaper when you factor in that.

Check out Eastvold custom. High-end design and quality, reasonably priced, from a small group of people who love what they do. Pick a piece, or have one made to order.

Hi all,
If you are looking for contemporary stainless steel door hardware, you should have a look at DAYORIS Hardware.
They have all kind of modern stainless steel door handles, stainless steel door levers, and very nice stainless steel door pulls.

The good thing is that they have all these stainless steel door hardware in stock.

But they also have modern doors, modern door stops and modern doorbells.

DAYORIS Hardware is the one stop shop for all modern hardware.

They distribute brands like Valli and Valli, FSB, and many stainless steel door handles suppliers.

We don't usually think about door hardware, but once installed you realize the value that these stainless steel door hardware added to any home or office.
It is a great thing to change before selling a home; home buyers pay attention to details, so with these modern hardware, the details will be here.

There is also a new product that just came out: wood wall panels.
This new line of modern wall panels is a new concept that standardize carpentry.
They have wood wall panels available in many diferent sizes, and diferent colors.
These modern wall panels are delivered with a sub-panel. You will just need to screw the sub-panel to the wall, and easily hang your wood panels like a picture frame.
This process is great you should look at the categorie wood wall panels : http:linkto wall panels.com

I recommend looking at manufacturers Dellarobbia or Carter furniture.  My experience is that both are very comfortable, well-built and stylish.  Unfortunately, the store that sold them went under a few years ago.  Modern furniture stores come and then seem to implode in Denver, e.g., Mecca, Light Spot.  However, Denver currently has two modern furniture stores, both of which are located north of Lodo.  They are Studio 2b (www.studio2bdenver.com) and Studio Como (www.studiocomo.com).
