While an original vintage Eames chair typically costs a pretty penny, budget-minded mid-century modern enthusiasts can still afford to dress their Mad Men-style abodes thanks to retro furniture makers like Modernica. The DTLA-based brand's stylish home merch becomes even more wallet-friendly during their highly-anticipated factory sale, which returns next month.
Taking place Saturday, June 7 form 9am to 3pm, the epic event (which also marks Modernica's 25th anniversary!) promises up to 70% off iconic pieces like fiberglass shell chairs (above) and George Nelson bubble lamps, Case Study Stainless outdoor decor and furnishings, plus many more Cali-modernist home and garden items. Shoppers score a chance to win additional discounts and prizes; like previous events, Eames enthusiasts can also enjoy an exclusive look at the classic shell chair's historic manufacturing process. In addition, the brand tells us there'll be plenty of food trucks for mid-spree refueling.
