While we specialize in fine vintage furniture and art at Acme Mid-Century + Modern, we also carry some of the finest new vintage design furniture available.
Modernica, the renowned California-based manufacturer, offers a huge variety of furniture, ceramics, and lighting in the mid-century modern style. With a range of colors, fabrics, and metal and wood finish options, there are literally tens of thousands of customizable iterations of Modernica’s furniture available through Acme’s King Street store. Our mini-showroom of Modernica products features a number of furniture and other product floor samples, along with swatches and chips of the various woods, fiberglass colors, and fabrics offered by Modernica. We enjoy working with our customers to design the perfect customized items to meet their aesthetic and functional needs!
For over two decades, Modernica has been crafting a range of fine furniture at its Los Angeles manufacturing complex. Last year, I had the opportunity to tour Modernica’s Los Angeles campus, and was impressed by the craftsmanship and pride evident in the various lines. A family-owned business, Modernica is perhaps most famous for reviving the historic fiberglass chair manufacturing process, using the massive original presses the company salvaged and restored, which were a highlight of my tour of the factory. I like to point out to my customers that in just the fiberglass chair line, between the many color options, base choices (bar stools, rockers, dining, etc.), and wood and metal finishes, there are over 4000 possible combinations!
With over seventy skilled woodworkers, upholsterers, carpenters, and craftsmen, the Los Angeles campus is a hub of production of a huge variety of indoor and outdoor sofas, lounges, tables, beds, storage and media units, ceramic planters, and lighting. As an authorized Modernica retailer, Acme Mid-Century + Modern is able to assist customers with the design, order, and delivery of the perfect customized items for our customers.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Modernica introduced its new Case Study Pearl Lamp, a stunning modern elliptical pendant light perfect for a number of different dining and other settings. Our sample Pearl Lamp has just arrived, and is now on display in our Old Town store.
The advantages of new modern designs, like those offered by Modernica, are many: craftsmanship, quality, customization, range of models and options, and scalability. All with a high degree of authenticity to many original designs, and others inspired by the vintage aesthetic. Acme is truly proud to offer the full range of Modernica products.
