Brooklyn, New York
Primarily an online business that caters to professionals designing for clients, Modest Designs is a treasure trove of furniture and decorations from historically important designers. Hans Wegner, Paul McCobb, Gianfranco Fratttini, and Edward Wormley's (to name a few) designs are arranged in vintage vignettes throughout the main level and basement of this corner store in Williamsburg. Unlike many small shops in the area, the wares are not stacked on top of each other and browsing is easy...
The one hindrance is that prices are not marked on the individual items (so you have to ask). Because the business is focused to online customers, the Modest Designs website is up-to-date and the inventory is priced there. Prices are on the high end. The website must be updated frequently, because it reflects the store's inventory very well.
