This Week: Mod Life

Fans of retro mid-century furniture will want to check out Mod Life, a sleek Lincoln Square showroom, which offers a terrific selection of mid-century furniture and accessories, much of which has been refinished, reupholstered and otherwise gussied up to show better than new. The space – bright, light and airy – is accentuated with pops of color (canary yellow, mandarin orange, icy blue) and tempered with a healthy dose of high-end charcoal fabrics and black accessories. I felt like I was in Miami, but I’ve never been to Miami so please draw your own conclusion.

I instantly fell in love with the pair of high-end, velvety gray chairs that sit in the front window; their clean lines are made a bit more formal by tufting and luxurious piping in all the right places.

Mod Life is located at 3856 N. Lincoln Avenue. For questions, visit their website, call 773-868-0844 or email

  1. Ooh, lovely. I am a fan of MCM– without making my home look like I just strolled out of the 50s, of course.

    I haven’t been to Miami, but I have been to Jacksonville Beach, and those colors are rather prevalent.

  2. I’ve been to this store and it’s a great place to find the perfect accents for the Mod home. The pieces in the spread are really lovely. Thanks for keeping us informed T.
