Collective Genius

 In Feature, Style


Walking into Rocket Century feels like walking into a Christopher Isherwood novel—or Don Draper’s office. The store is stacked with rare mid-century goods, some all-original and some restored, that can satisfy the hunger of any lover of ’50s and ’60s decor. Now, with its newly launched Vintage Modern Collective, featuring the distinct selections of four specialty dealers, that hunger is satisfied tenfold.

“We each have our own eye for how we select and buy pieces, so the Collective will provide a bigger variety and more eclectic offering of vintage modern styles for the home,” Rocket Century owner Kristina Starr says.

Collective member Hannah Headrick, a dealer for Rocket Century and a vintage modern aficionado with more than 10 years of experience buying and selling old interior goods, looks forward to bringing in specialty pieces like abstract art and organic-modern furniture with a “West Elm feel.” Starr expects the four new collective dealers to bring their unique tastes and buying power to the table, increasing the store’s selection and furthering its status as the go-to resource for mid-century modern furniture and decor.
