MoModerne: A Midcentury-Modern Design Shop
Veteran thrifters know there are treasures to be found at estate sales—though finding those treasures often requires sifting through endless piles of commonplace items. MoModerne, a design shop that also administers weekly estate sales, offers an alternative to rummaging. Run by Luby Kelley and Anna Weiss, the store’s showroom is constantly rotating with fresh finds, which they unearth and curate themselves.
A look at the brand’s inventory yields gems like mustard-colored Milo Baughman his-and-hers lounge chairs, a retro Jens Risom two-piece sofa and other homages to American and mid-century modernism. Treat yourself to a scroll through the @momoderne Instagram feed for more nostalgic inspiration. We’d also recommend having a look at Anna Weiss’ Instagram, which features pieces for sale with the aptly titled handle, @momodernemoproblems. If only all modern-furniture companies could so smoothly reference The Notorious B.I.G.
