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.
