Modern History delivers lesson in timeless style with reinvented classics, finishes and designs at Market

Modern History stays true to its name this Market with furniture introductions that combine classical and historical design elements with modern pizazz. This combination of the modern and history is rendered in many different ways, making for a fresh collection for the Spring High Point Market. Sometimes the “history” lesson is told in the way the furniture has been finished or constructed. Modern History is known for its ability to create authentic finishes and patina. Gorgeous and intricate inlays, hand carvings and burled surfaces are other hallmarks of the brand. Some furnishings have classical shapes and serpentine curves paired with unexpected modern finishes, while others are modern shapes made interesting with more rustic and traditional finishes.
