Hello everyone. I am excited to be writing the first Modern Times blog post. I guess I should introduce myself! My name is Amy and I’m one half of Modern Times. I am really looking forward to opening the first mid-century furniture pop-up shop in Melbourne. We have hand-selected stunning designer pieces and imported them from directly from Denmark, there is an emphasis on pieces from the most well known designers such as Arne Vodder and H J Wegner although there is many pieces from lesser known designers and manufacturers. Browse the website to see many of the pieces although there will be many more in store.
I intend to use this blog to post news and developments about Modern Times and also to look at mid-century design and it’s relevance in Melbourne and more broadly, Australia.
The Modern Times Pop-Up Shop will also be showcasing the work of local designers who are influenced by the mid-century Scandinavian or retro style. I love the idea of bringing together the old/vintage/original pieces from abroad with the new/fresh/inspired designs currently being created locally.
