Moderne Gallery has been internationally renowned for its high quality, vintage 20th Century furniture, lighting and accessories since 1984, presenting an extensive inventory of that period's finest works - from French and American Art Deco and French 1940's-1950's to exclusive Wharton Esherick pieces. The gallery is unique in its specialization in vintage work from the American Studio Craft Movement.
In 1985 Moderne Gallery was the first gallery to promote the work of George Nakashima and still has the finest and largest selection in the US of his 1940-'s-1980's designs.
Responding to requests from serious collectors, Moderne Gallery extended its inventory to include vintage work of Sam Maloof, Wendell Castle, Arthur Espenet Carpenter, David Ebner, Peter Voulkos, Toshiko Takaezu, Viola Frey, Edward Moulthrop, William Hunter and many others. More recently Moderne Gallery has begun to present fine art and craft works by contemporary artists, such as Miriam Carpenter, who are already sought after by discerning and forward-looking collectors.
