Alright, it's not that fabled find at the garage sale where someone puts their father's mint condition Eame's chair out on the curb for $20. With the heightened awareness of the growing appreciation for most things mid century, that fantasy is fading fast.
But where to find that perfect Danish original mid century dining table and chairs? That perfectly shaped sofa with upholstery that doesn't look like shredded wheat? Look Modern to the rescue. Every piece on display is in first rate condition, and most upholstered pieces have been redone with a very good sense of vintage texture and fabric. No chachki shop here, this is truly a furniture store with coffee and dining tables, sofas, and sideboard/credenzas with a smattering of lighting and decorative wall pieces.
The prices reflect the condition, with some lower cost finds in the back room. If you have more good taste than time and luck this is your best bet for mid century modern furniture in Portland. SE 8th and Clay
