We love contrasting combinations that work well together. Like the combination of rustic and glam elements – for example a farm table paired with a stunning chandelier. Or vintage crate full of magazines placed next to a glamorous armchair. Here are a few of our favorite inspiration images that best illustrate this lovely combination!

This week, we are mad for mid century modern furniture and accessories! There is so much to be said for this period in design – clean lines, inventive and practical designs for furniture, daring to be different – the furniture and home decor elements that came out of this era were inspired and interesting. Mid-century modern style has seen a huge comeback in recent years – it can be mixed so well with modern decor and is often of the highest quality.

Today – we are spotlighting one of our very own dealers, Acme Mid-Century Modern. Acme is owned and curated by Pierre Paret, a connoisseur of mid-century modern furnishings. Paret rehabs many of his pieces – reupholstering them in high quality, period-appropriate fabrics.

Acme’s focus is on mid-century and modern furniture, art and accessories. Pierre offers a well-curated selection fit for a first time buyer or a seasoned collector. Find pieces from iconic designers and manufacturers like Charles Eames, Herman Miller, Knoll, and Kofod Larsen. In need of help finding a particular piece of vintage furniture? Pierre will take on the hunt for you. He also offers custom restoration services for pieces in need of a little TLC.

Here are some photos of Pierre’s offerings available at Evolution Home.
