Located on the unassuming corner of Manhattan Avenue and Meserole Avenue in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, Vintage Modern makes a splash amongst a clued-in community where many local, specialized businesses are fast placing roots.
With years of experience working in both high-end interior decorating and graphic design, Vintage Modern’s owner, Erin Hall, combines her love of mid-century furniture and attention to detail to stock an always-changing collection of furnishings and accessories - with a focus on mid-century American finds.
In addition to her meticulously selected array of mid-century modern inventory, which includes everything from sofas and credenzas to glassware and lighting, Hall’s sharp wit and enthusiasm for what she describes as her “calling” keeps customers returning to see what’s new week after week. Always on the lookout for the next great piece, Hall makes it a point to include favorites like Paul McCobb, Russel Wright and Heywood Wakefield in her rotating repetoire. Of her curatorial eye she explains, “I really just try to pick stuff I would want to have in my own place.” With a tasteful selection of vintage home goods set at an affordable price point, Hall also fulfills her mission to make great design attainable to the people.
A true diamond in the rough, Vintage Modern is one of those coveted neighborhood gems that you just can’t pass without popping in for a look-see.
