With our departure from New England on the horizon, I'm making every effort to visit all my favorite spots one last time. That includes stores I love both on personal and professional levels, i.e., places where I shop for my clients and for myself. Last week, while in the South End, I stopped by Reside. With two locations, one in Cambridge and another in Boston, Reside is the place to find 20th century modern furniture, lighting and accessories. Meticulously curated mid-century items make up most of their ever changing inventory, but they also carry many other period pieces, all stemming from a time when furniture building was a craft and quality mattered more than quantity. Buying any Reside piece is a worthwhile investment. Inventory of original modern furnishings is on the rise due to so many baby boomers downsizing and moving on with their lives. Whether you're a collector or just looking for a unique find, now is the time to shop. Take a look at some of my favorite store's offerings and enter to win a mid-century design oil and vinegar set from Reside (featured below):
Many thanks to Pamela of Reside for contributing our latest reader giveaway and for providing Cambridge and Boston with such great places to shop for mid-century modern!
