I’m not against the likes of Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware, they provide some nice furnishings and the convenience is just too damn, well…convenient. However, decorating your entire home with pieces from a store located next to a Cheesecake Factory doesn’t convey much personality. It’s a half-assed effort.
Next time you’re looking to outfit your home or office with some rustic gear, check out Modern 50. Founded by buddies, Dino Paxenos and Eric Ginter, the Virginia based design collective refurbishes old pieces that have been kicked to the curb for a bevy of residential and retail clients.
