Minneapolis Mid-Century Modern


Minneapolis has a lot of great resources for vintage mid-century modern furniture and decor items as well as a lot of local experts in the area of mid-century modern design and architecture.  Here are a few of Our Care-Free Home's local favorites!

Furniture
FindFurnish has some great mid-century modern furniture and decor at reasonable prices. They have a showroom in N.E. Minneapolis as well as an Etsy storefront. They'll even help find a specific item you're looking for, just give them the budget and timeline!

Sign of the Times Design recently opened in North Minneapolis, and has a lot of great vintage and mid-century modern furniture. We recently purchased a Broyhill Brasilia hutch here that we love and they had a matching dining set too!

Spinario has some great high-end and designer mid-century modern pieces, but they can get spendy! The first time we visited the store, we were drooling over a perfect marble-topped Saarinen tulip dining table and chairs. They also had the original sales brochure for Our Care-Free Home in their archives! Spinario's inventory can be viewed on their website and updates are also posted to their Facebook page.

Retro Wanderlust is located in downtown Hopkins and features 50s, 60s and 70s vintage furniture and decor.  Check out their Facebook page for inventory and hours and their Pinterest page for some cool staging photos. We haven't purchased anything here yet, but we plan on it!

Resources
Cy Winship is an interior designer you may recognize from HGTV's "Decorating Cents" and is a mid-century modern design expert.  He's been helping us out with a few projects in Our Care-Free Home and has a wealth of knowledge on era-appropriate furniture, wall coverings and color palettes.

docomomo MN is a local non-profit group who's mission is to raise interest in and awareness of modern architecture.  The group hosts several events during the year including a local modern homes tour!

TC MCM (Twin Cities Mid-Century Modern) is a Facebook group with over 1,600 Minneapolis mid-century enthusiasts.  Its a great place to discuss local architecture, find good vintage furniture and learn about local MCM events.
