Store Profile

Store History

  • Founded: 2003
  • Founded by: Dino Paxenos
  • Headquarters: Paint Branch, MD

Modern50 is a multi-disciplinary art and design collective. We assemble, create, and procure the most compelling furnishings for Residential and Retail Interiors, and the TV and Movie Industries. We love to collaborate with like-folks and artists to create an ever-evolving non-linear consumer lifestyles collection. Our ethos is to discover intrinsically valuable decorative arts and furnishings through; purpose, texture, color or form, to help our clients set apart their spaces. At the heart of all our creations are obsolete, repurposed or reclaimed salvage materials. We pioneer uncommon combinations and adhere to modernist tenets; simplicity and intelligence. We are confident that we can convey the unexpected and unforgettable, while striving to inspire creativity.

Modern 50 and its sister website Factory 20 are both located in Sterling, Virginia, but the store's online presence is how we found them. Their web catalog features carefully curated, beautifully photographed vintage finds that range from mid-century to Bauhaus styles with an industrial edge.

They ship pretty much anywhere and, in addition to their retail business, Modern 50 offers prop rental services and interior design consultation. Definitely worth a look if you're a fan of vintage modern furniture.
