Our Go-To Stores for Midcentury Modern Furniture

Midcentury Modern Furniture

Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

Midcentury modern is a trend that remains consistently in demand. Full of architectural allure and nostalgic, handsome detail, it's an aesthetic that is timeless and sophisticated. Because of its perennial popularity, it's actually quite easy to find both one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and contemporary reproductions to fill your home with furniture from the era. You just have to know where to look.

You can spend a day wandering through a flea market or a thrift store in hopes of finding a seriously unique item from the past, or you can visit online vintage treasure troves like Chairish and 1stDibs. If you're keen to find a new item inspired by the time period, there are also myriad retailers. Whether you're looking for big-ticket items like couches and armoires or you're hoping to score smaller pieces like mirrors and end tables, these are the places to know.
