At modern artifacts, we've dedicated the last two decades to postwar art and design.
With the help of experienced vendors, we balance professional restoration with genuine patina and period-appropriate choices. Furniture is returned to its former luster and usefulness. Art is thoughtfully framed and conserved to insure a tasteful, protected, and unfettered presentation.
It's a fresh look in a naturalized setting.
Despite a focus on postwar items, our inventory stretches beyond mid-century modern. The search for objects offering structural integrity, artistic vision
and historical relevance-what we call "modern artifacts"-pushes us
forward into the postmodern era and rearward into early modern.
New or old-no matter the period, our inventory does not cater to a short sighted consumption of compromised design and unconsidered art.
We have no patience for items presented as affordable alternatives to a "costlier" investment in quality.
Too often you, the "consumer," not only "get what you pay for," but ultimately pay for what you get.
You pay to own it, pay to sell it... or trash it, then you pay to replace it and start all over again.
Such destructive "choices," promote environmental degradation, needless cost and, frankly, bad interiors.
At modern artifacts, we also question excessive reliance upon new manufacturing and thoughtless transport of goods
around the planet. Globalized trolling not only consumes limited resources, but also obscures both the value of items
already at hand and our potential to appreciate and salvage the world around us.
Interiors reflect our relationship with the natural world. At modern artifacts, we look forward to working with clients who consider their interior space an extension of a shared environment in need of serious attention.
