Century Modern, Dallas

2928 Main St.
Dallas , Texas
Tel: 214 651 9200's insider take:

It's mid-century-modern madness at this unpretentious Deep Ellum storefront, where artfully composed suites take you back to 1950s high style. Go ahead and sit in the 1951 Eero Saarinen armchairs or the classic 1950s Eames lounge chairs by Herman Miller. The icons are everywhere: a Robsjohn-Gibbings triangular table, Hans Wegner sofa, Paul McCobb cabinets, Edward Wormley dressers. But there's also generic, period Danish modern and just plain cool-looking no-name stuff. As a bonus, the showroom has the nation's top selection of sleek Deco broadcast microphones from the dawn of radio and television (1920s through 1950s), as well as vintage aero-style fans and kitchen appliances.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 11 am to 5 pm.
