modmood/retro consignment...

Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend,
 as usual we packed in a lot of fun with friends, family and, of course, food! 
Last week a friend and I went to an open house a unique local store, 

modmood/RETRO Consignment
modmood features contemporary and designer furniture, lighting, area rugs, art, and other cutting edge
furnishings. RETRO Consignment caters to mid-century enthusiasts, vintage collectors and everyone
looking for unusual and fun americana. It is the place to shop for and consign pieces.
7700 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge, CO 


I was completely smitten with this large oval storage ottoman by Norwalk,
 the bold pink and orange print was lively and modern yet the style felt classic.


It had been awhile since I'd seen pieces from Norwalk Furniture,
 I was impressed with their furniture and fabric lines available through modmood.


Love these colors and textures...


Lots of painted furniture in bright, vibrant hues...  


Is it me, or do some of these colors look awfully close to mauve....
Great peacock pillow.



A collection of their vintage pieces are in the back in an old greenhouse.
HUGE lamps...

I immediately thought of my friends Linda and Jennifer when I saw these...
$40 for the pair.


I tried to talk my friend into this aged brass, beauty...


Aqua leather with nail head trim...fabulous...


 Stop by if you're local, it's a fun outing!

Today I'm working on a diy project ~ yard art ~ to be revealed this week! :)

What a cool place! So, it's a mixture of old and reproductions? I wish we had something like that here!

Oh I wanna shop there! But please tell me mauve isn't coming back! GAH!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Oh my gosh, what a fab find! I want to fly out and go to these stores with you! I went to a great consignment store this weekend too, with my mom-in-law, and we we shopped 'til we dropped! So fun to spend other people's money! I adore that consignment shops are "in", some of the furniture is just so much nicer in quality than brand new!
