Showcasing designers such as Hans J. Wegner, Jens Risom, Charles and Ray Eames, and Paul McCobb (among many others), Retro@Home's furniture collection is extensive and includes seating, tables and storage units. There are also quirky and hard-to-find pieces like high-quality tiki paraphernalia, vintage European ceramics and the reissued, quintessentially Californian Architectural Pottery line.
Retro@Home also offers personalized interior design services, including custom upholstery, sewing and furniture design. Every piece is unique at Retro@Home, and much of it is collectible. Prices are fair, but reflect the hot market. Despite the clunky online interface, the store is certainly worth a visit in person.
