Based in Southern California, 2Modern carries and sells the works of the most talented and innovative designers of modern furniture and homeware on their website. Carrying familiar brand names like Magis, Blu Dot, Nurseryworks and Inhabit Living, this company is always dedicated to identifying the best in modern design trends by visiting small artisan studios, attending the industry's best trade shows and discovering talented, emerging contemporary designers. From what I've seen on their online catalogue so far, I can only say that hard work definitely shows.
First of all, I have a thing for clean lines, which I feel will never ever go out of style. Hence, the Charles sofa from Desiron, with its graceful lines and softly tapered arms, really pleases my eyes. Same goes for the equally gorgeous Euclid Ottoman and Clinton Sectional sofa from Gus* Modern and the finely-constructed Wishbone Desk (my, that timber top!) by Skram. Simple and understated nonetheless, the designs of these pieces exude classiness and sophistication all over.
Similarly, the comfortable and modern looking Surf Chaise from Teys amazes me with its surfboard-like design. Made of a steel frame finished in epoxy paint and stuffed with polyurethane foam wrapped in synthetic fiber, this chaise looks as good in the study as by the poolside. Other great stuff to look out for include the Field Grass Slat and the Timber Triptic Slat room dividers from Inhabit, made from 100% sustainable recycled polyester handprinted with environmentally-friendly inks. Consider quirky products like the Spike Pool wool rug and the cushy Dot Circle chair pad too.
A check with Deanna from 2Modern suggests that their products are only available in the U.S at this moment. Plans are in place to ship their fantastic furniture and home accessories to the rest of the world though. So if you stay in within the U.S, you're in luck.
