Los Angeles offers a wide selection of mid-century modern, vintage and contemporary furniture and home décor shops, sometimes with rows of them lining blocks at a time. For unique pieces that’ll last a lifetime, here are seven popular shops offering either locally made or locally curated goods.

1. Midcentury LA

Store

This large store specializes in mid-century modern furniture imported from Europe. Chairs, dining sets, credenzas, lighting and more can be found in their sprawling warehouse, so shoppers may want to set plenty of time aside to find that perfect piece. Fans of Midcentury LA rave about the knowledgeable staff and attentive customer service.

2. A+R

Store

A+R owners Rose Apodaca and Andy Griffith curate a selection of colorful furniture and home décor pieces from around the world. Offerings range from sleek and modern to vibrant and quirky, but all are suitable for the modern home. Large and unique pieces can be pricey, but smaller household wares make for unique and affordable gifts.

3. Cisco Home

Shop

Locally made, sustainable furniture and décor are on offer at this airy shop on Melrose. Though there are other locations across the country, Cisco’s eco-friendly furniture is made right here in Los Angeles. Browse beds, shelves, coffee tables and more. They have an excellent selection of items in neutral colors and clean, minimalist styles, and many items are made from recycled or repurposed woods too.

Modernica

Modernica has been selling furniture built in Los Angeles for over 25 years now, specializing in colorful fiberglass shell chairs. However, their showroom features more than just chairs. Find tables, papa bear chairs, bubble lamps, couches, Case Study furniture and other mid-century modern finds suitable for pretending you’re on Mad Men.

Modernica, 7366 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, USA, +1 323 933 0383

4. Hammer and Spear

Store

Proprietors Scott Jarrell and Kristan Cunningham opened the industrial-chic home décor store Hammer and Spear in the Arts District in 2013. Their masculine showroom, in exposed brick and dark woods, features lots of black leather and sleek wood furniture, minimalist décor, and a selection of curated grooming products.

5. Gold Bug

Shop

Pasadena’s Gold Bug stocks their shelves with décor inspired by natural history and science. Oddities include spiny ceramics, taxidermy, eerie postcards, witchy jewelry, and art that looks like it belongs in a haunted mansion.

6. Amsterdam Modern

Shop, Store

This massive, 10,000-square-foot (929-square-meter) warehouse is packed with mid-century modern furniture, home décor and lighting from, as the name might imply, Amsterdam. Amsterdam Modern also has a second location, Amsterdam Modern Outlet Store in Highland Park, suitable for browsing in a more traditional retail setting. The outlet shop is more affordable than the warehouse.
