2000 Best Furniture, Mid-Century Modern

Machine Age

Even if mod furniture wasn’t stunningly trendy, we would gush about Machine Age. For nine years, owner Normand Mainville has indulged his passion for such things as classic Herman Miller chairs and Saarinen tulip tables. The oversized showroom’s selection is so good that furniture dealers from around the country visit for inspiration. If this style is up your alley, you should too.
