Though this architectural trend occurred between the 1930s and 1960s, the style is absolutely timeless.
So where can you find a little slice of mid-century modern around the Circle City? Stick with us, daddy-o, we’re about to tell you.
FLUX, 515 N. Luett Ave.
You could previously find this spot tucked away in the Fountain Fletcher District, but now it’s got a new home on the near west side. The entire shop is an homage to the furniture you’d see in an episode of “Mad Men,” including dining sets and writing desks.
Midland Arts and Antiques, 907 E. Michigan St.
You might have to dig a little in this massive building with over 200 independent vendors, but we have no doubt you’ll find classic vintage items like an Eames chair or an ochre floor lamp.
You might remember us gushing about the Miller House and Garden in our guide to Columbus, IN — and we’re reminding you that it’s a must for any mid-century modern moguls. The house is packed with futuristic kitchen items and customized furniture. And you’re sure to learn something about landscape design during the 90-minute tour. Sign up.
Plus, while you’re in the neighborhood, why not caf up at Lucabe Coffee Co.? Its location perched above a creek at 2531 Eastbrook Plz. was converted from an old bank designed by Harry Weese and it’s quite a sight — inside and out.
