NYC and Long Island Mid-Century Modern Furniture BuyerThe Mid-Century Modern furniture market is hot! Furniture from the 50s and 60s is in extremely high demand today. It’s hard to believe that 100 year old antique wood furniture has become very difficult to sell. Instead, furniture a half century old is what buyers and designers are looking for. Heavy oversized dark mahogany wood antique furniture is being replaced. The Mid-Century Modern furniture designers used materials such as steel, lucite, glass and plastic. The popular colors of furniture from the Mid-Century period include light brown, white, black and just about all colors of the rainbow. The modern furniture is often curved and tends to have a clean look. Many Mid-Century Modern designers come from the United States and Denmark.

Do not be discouraged if you have a piece of Mid-Century Modern furniture that is not designed by one of the designers or companies listed. We buy many pieces from other furniture designers as well. In addition, we also purchase some furniture that just has the right mid-century retro “look.”
