Machine Age

Okay, so 20th-century goods aren’t exactly antique. But if you’re simply seeking exquisite items with a storied past, you’ll find them at South Boston’s Machine Age, a 9,000-square-foot warehouselike store overflowing with the most iconic furniture and lighting from the past century, plus rare Danish modern pieces that have never been stateside until now.
