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.
Hollywood glamour is instantly reflected in this Hollywood Regency Console-- and Stacie Vanchieri, who lives in the Fan and owns Modelogic, a Richmond modeling agency, found an immediate use for two of these consoles. The consoles are useful and beautiful!
Karen and Geoff Glick's home on Boulevard has a carefully chosen jewel-tone decor in the living room centered around an exquisite oil painting which they cherish. They loved the individual glass blown colors in this one-of-a-kind Davis Ramos floor lamp because it picks up some of the colors in the painting and other carefully selected pieces.
Items from the early glamour days of commercial flying are currently very collectible. Billy Fisher has an enviable collection of Concord, TWA and other airline objects. A Farquhar Lucite Multiple Globe from the 1960s is an item Billy Fisher will add nicely to his collection of air travel objects.
Vintage Murano studio glass pieces have become increasingly popular to display or to collect. Ed Barlow purchased these Murano Pear & Apple designed by Barbini in the 1960s as a gift. Ed liked the multiple layers of blown glass which changed in color when catching light.
