If you’re a mid-century design fanatic you’ll want to run — not walk — on over to Pico Modern Furnishings located on Pico Blvd. just one block West of Hauser in Los Angeles.

This little store recently opened a few short months ago and already it is jam packed with mid century furniture and accessories at affordable prices. Pico Modern Furnishings has a pretty large selection of ceramic and metal lamps in a myriad of colors, side tables refinished in teak wood including some red lacquered two tiered tables (I keep eyeing them in the store), along with some vibrant 1950?s to 1970?s abstract art.

Unfortunately they do not have a website as of yet, but you can always email owner Don (picomodern AT for pricing and information. He might even have what your looking for since he’s also the buyer for his other store called Design Modern located at 6055 Melrose near Vine St.

    I desperately want to have a shop like this of my own someday … gorgeous stuff. I’ll have to try to stop by when I’m out there in May :)

    So…..I live in Boise which is becoming quite fashion forward but still lacking in furniture and accessory boutiques. Do you know of any new trendy shops in this area or in the surrounding areas? Right now I have become web savvy but there is something amazing about being surrounded by wonderful items!!!

    A friend and I randomly came across this great shop, not only was Don really nice, but his selection of things was incredible. Lovely ceramic pieces, great furniture, and unique lighting. I wish i could have brought it all back to the east coast!

    What a great store. Love the Metropolitan Modern red tables & the vintage white vases.
