“Dear PoP,

I previously wrote to you in July, 2009 seeking the advice of your readers on where to open a vintage furniture store. I am happy to announce that I opened Modern Mobler Saturday, 05/08 at 7313 Georgia Ave NW, in the Takoma (Park) area of DC, just north of Walter Reed near Silver Spring, MD.

The 1700 sq ft store will feature select items of Vintage and Mid Century / Danish Modern furnishings from my vast collection of over 4000 sq ft of current inventory. To start, Modern Mobler will be open Thursday through Sunday 11am – 7pm. I plan to take consignments in addition to purchasing furniture. I have already established a wide network of collectors, dealers and suppliers who will keep my inventory fresh & ever changing. Delivery will also be available.

Modern Mobler is very pleased to be part of the revitalization of Takoma Park & Georgia Ave. I want to thank you & your readers for their support. Please stop by and I look for forward to seeing everyone.

I plan to also be open this Wednesday from 11-7 for those who want to get a sneak-peak. The store sits between Angelico pizzeria and the Washington Humane Society. Of note, I will also be working with several local upholsterers to support more of a local ‘full-service’ green retail furnishings destination.”

Sounds great, best of luck to you!

    Sounds like a great shop. This gives me an excuse to travel to the top of NW Georgia Ave other than Ledo’s Pizza.

    is it me or does this seem like a really weird no mans land to put a retail furniture store?

    Hippies need furniture, too. A bean bag chair only goes so far.

      mid-century modern furniture is associated with hippie culture? what the hell are you talking about?

        Arthur is referring to the fact that Takoma DC and Takoma Park MD are full of hippies, and that the addition of a mid-century furniture shop would give them other options to chose from to furnish their hippie houses.

        Get it?

    This comment is going to sound a bit nit-picky, but isn’t that neighborhood technically called Sherperd Park, and NOT Takoma, DC? (I suppose that if it’s on the East side of Geogia Ave, maybe it is and I could be wrong…)

    And, also, to clarify, it’s not “Takoma Park DC”, it’s just Takoma. Takoma Park begins when you cross over the line into MD.

    Please make that correction.

    My boyfriend and I bought some dining chairs from the owner (Doug) in April, and had a great experience. He has a really extensive selection of vintage items in broad range of prices. I encourage folks to go check out his shop and spend a few minutes talking with him, he’s really passionate about his collection and would love to help folks find the right pieces.
