Modern Times

Having recently moved from their original location in Wicker Park, Modern Times is still in the business of namedropping classics of twentieth-century modern design. Devotees of the shop might travel anywhere for the selection, so its new home on Grand Avenue isn't much of a stretch.

With the recent AT discussion of knock-offs concluding in passionate support of original design and quality, Modern Times is a classic Chicago stop for original pieces and up-and-coming designers.

Some of our favorites: Dana Joy's candelabra from her fab house tour; a pair of Knoll upholsterd lounge chairs, ($2800), and this Harvey Probber sofa, ($3800, above).

In addition to furnishings, Modern Times sells lighting fixtures, specialty objects (like this 1975 wallhanging by Eleanor and Henry Kluck (Elenhank) of Chicago), and select jewelry.
