Modern Classics Furniture Reproductions

Welcome to Modern Classics Furniture; where we focus tightly on manufacturing and selling furniture in the niche market known as Modern Classics furniture reproductions. Since 1998, we have been a recognized manufacturing and distribution source of modern classic furnishings.

We are committed to accurate reproductions of the the original furniture designs of the Bauhaus Modern (1917 to 1933), L'Espirit Nouveau Modern (1920 to 1940), Scandinavian Modern (1930 to 1970) and Mid Century Modern (1940 to 1960), furniture best known as Modern Classics. Our replicas of these furniture designs are made to the same design and detail as the originals, made even better by our use of today's materials. Each of our Modern Classic furniture pieces is made by hand and we go to great lengths to ensure that we adhere to the close design specifications of the original designs. In addition, compared to other furniture found all over the internet, the materials we use are superior: #304 stainless steel, hand polished to a high luster (we do not use mild steel that has been chrome-plated); leather is imported from Italy and is 100% aniline-dyed, full grain leather. We inspect, box and ship each piece here in the USA by people who care - Our Modern Classics Furniture are not your ordinary reproductions or "knock off" -just read our testimonials.

Various websites
Quality Level Generally High, but we find they are inconsistent Generally High: e.g., we use only premium Italian Leather, our dimensions match the originals; we use high quality parts and stainless steel, we use full hardwood frames; we continually strive to improve, we can customize. Generally Low: e.g. use inferior leather, dimensions do match originals, poor finish quality on wood, swivel bearings are cheap, buttons glued on (not sewn), plastic instead of fiberglass, styling details are missing or done wrong, inferior foam.
Price Level Shockingly High! Priced in the middle, because we are factory direct, because we have low overhead Generally Low; you get what you pay for!
Selection Level Wide range of upholstery colors, sourced from a variety of high-quality manufacturers. Customizing generally not possible. We focus on only one niche: Modern Classics; we have excellent selection of leathers and fabrics, and can source from a variety of manufacturers; leather, wood finishes and fabrics match across our entire line, so you can mix and match designers. No one else offers this! Have many products sourced from a variety of low-end Chinese manufacturers with no clear focus; wood and leather may not match between the various products; limited selection of upholstery, no COM.
Service Level Usually good, but lots of rules to follow and low score on flexibility Very High. Calls and emails returned promptly; speak directly with the owner; we are knowledgeable about every product we sell; we want you to be happy! Some are better than others.
Warranty and Returns 2 year warranty, limited return policy 5 year warranty, we receive very few returns in general, none for product quality 1 year warranty. People are seduced by the price, but end up returning if they have higher standards of quality, is what we hear...

Wood Choices

We currently offer 7 standard finishes choices on those products where wood is exposed, such as the Bauhaus Exhibition Daybed and Benches, the Wegner Chairs, Noguchi Table etc. Because we do our own finishing, we can usually custom make an item in a finish not shown, for an extra charge and a 25 piece minimum. Another advantage of in-house finishing is the same stain can be used across our entire product line, no matter who the designer. Something that DWR can't even do at three times the cost!
