I first stepped foot into Mod Livin' nearly twelve years ago, not knowing then that I would one day be the owner. Coming from corporate retail, I was really looking for something where I could connect on a more one-on-one level with my customers. One of the best perks is helping our customers introduce new design elements into their homes and lives. I believe that furniture, and the home in which it's presented in, tell a story and it's a reflection of the people who reside there.

I am so grateful to be able to work with some of the best designers and architects in the biz. Mod Livin' gives them the opportunity to explore our new modern furniture from makers like
Blu Dot, Gus* Modern and Pablo Designs! Then there's the ever changing vintage pieces we bring in. Midcentury (modern) designers set a standard that has withstood the test of time rooted in innovation and well-imagined designsI I love working alongside designers and architects to discover what pieces we can mix and match to best fit their clients needs.

Taking the reins at Mod Livin' in 2021 was one of the best changes that I have made, and I'm really excited for what the future holds!

Vintage Dealer-
John Mayer

I've been a vintage dealer with Mod Livin’ nearly since day one, almost 20 years ago. My fondness for good design began as I tried my hand creating art/design early in life. Several career and personal detours eventually led me to procuring/selling design as a vintage dealer of decorative arts when modlivin’ opened in 2001.

I am lucky to be working with good friends, while being surrounded by wonderful design. The thrill of acquiring and re-homing great objects remains as rewarding today as it was 15 years ago. I have always loved the appeal to the senses of a great design whether an automobile, a motorcycle, a bicycle, or furnishings. All are my weaknesses.

Good design should excite and energize. It's a privilege to bring that to the marketplace and into someone’s home."
