Timeless, classic, comfortable: these words are often used to describe mid-century modern furniture, and also explain why so many find this style appealing. Developed during the age of television, Charles and Ray Eames were perfecting techniques for curving plywood and ensuring durability of the exposed lamination that are used to this day. Their style is often imitated, but nothing can compare to the original. Eames designs were revolutionary, juxtaposing the plainest of materials, plywood, exposed in a high-end luxury furniture set. Simple yet luxurious all at once.
The Eames chair, produced with Herman Miller, remains a highly sought after item by mid-century modern furniture aficionados. Time does take itWhat s toll on these beautiful pieces of home decor, and a leader in the luxury furniture restoration industry is Hume Modern. The team at Hume emphasizes personal style with a custom touch.
Production designer Jeannine Oppewall, who amassed a mid-century furniture collection while scouting yard sales and flea markets for pieces to use on film sets, raves about Hume Modern, saying, “Alfie knows these pieces backward, forward and inside out,” she says. “He gives great advice about how to preserve the value of your investments.”
