About Us | Contact

MIDMODMEN+FRIENDS offers authentic mid-century, modern and made-in-Minnesota furniture and decor at its best. We hand-select vintage items and then clean, rejuvenate or restore each one according to need. The emphasis is always on quality. Plus, we partner with independent local artisans and artists who create furniture, lighting and artwork that enriches our design perspective.

Browse many of our available items in the showcase section at MidModMen.com and watch for previews on Instagram and Facebook.

  • PAYMENTS American Express, Discover, Mastercard, VISA, Apple Pay, Venmo
  • GIFT CARDS available through Square
  • LOCAL DELIVERY is available from Mint Moving; ask us about other options
  • SHIPPING BY MAIL is available for many smaller items

We want shopping in the store to be inviting and not overwhelming. So we stage the showroom with lots of options. Just not too many.  But what’s in the store is far from everything that’s available. If you come in and talk to us about what you’re seeking, we’ll let you know if it’s waiting in the wings. We can arrange for you to see an item and claim it in advance. Some items are ready to go, so we’ll bring them in for you to purchase right away. Others require restoration and we can discuss that process.

Inventory changes weekly (even daily) and we’re diligent about posting details about major items in the showcase section at MidModMen.com. On Instagram and Facebook, too. That means we remove or mark as sold anything that’s no longer available – usually by the end of the day. That also means you don’t need to wait for store hours to reach out to us. If you see something you want, let us know and we’ll make it possible to lock it down.
Can’t make it during store hours? We’re available to respond to inquiries any day of the week. If you want to purchase something outside store hours, just call, text or email and we’ll arrange payment and pickup/delivery options. In some cases we can schedule a daytime appointment if you’d like to see a specific item or want to pick up a purchase.
It’s part of our mission to support Minnesota/regional artisans and artists by showcasing their work in the store. We’re fortunate to have an exclusive relationship with a local furniture-maker, and always have his handcrafted pieces in the store. We also have a sampling of lighting and lampshades from partner ModiLumi Lighting but encourage you to visit their St. Paul store for a dazzling selection. Plus, we blend local artists into the mix in limited run exhibitions under our Future Heirlooms banner.

If you need to have your purchase delivered locally, we highly recommend Mint Moving for reliable local/regional service. If you need to have a large item shipped, we’ll help you choose a freight company. For smaller items, we pack and ship via the United States Postal Service.

We can’t do everything and do it all well. So we partner with and recommend resources to round out our particular expertise. We make referrals for upholstery services and upholstery fabric. Decorating or staging your home. Moving a few pieces or entire households.
Have something to sell that fits our offering of American mid-century and Scandinavian modern furniture and decor? Please email pictures, information and contact details to MidModMen@gmail.com. If it doesn’t fit our inventory needs, we’ll happily direct you to other stores and venues that might be a good fit.

    I’m interested in the brutalist bedroom furniture you highlighted on social media. Could you email me prices at my email. We are dealers, but this would be for personal use. Thanks!

    I am looking for a desk w/vintage details and practical storage.

    1. All of our currently available desks are featured in the showcase section. Inventory changes frequently, so check the website and/or follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

    2. We post available items in the showcase section at MidModMen.com.

    We have a vintage 1960s sofa, maker unknown, in the style of designer Adrian Pearsall. We also have a vintage glass-top table with wooden base that also matches Pearsall’s designs. My parents got them on the West coast in the late 1980s (used). Are you interested in purchasing either one?

    1. Hello and thank you for reaching out. Please email pictures to MidModMen@gmail.com. Include information re: condition of the upholstery. And also your time frame.

  4. Jim Madson says:

    Are you interested in a vintage reproduction Herman Miller Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair (4 Leg Base), black. I have pictures. I have owned it for about 30 years. It is 25″ x 23″ x 31″. It has a label from the Saint Paul School District.

    1. Thank you for reaching out. We’re no longer carrying this chair style. We appreciate that you gave us consideration.

  5. Cynthia Johnson says:

    Are you interested in a Heywood Wakefield desk?
    Thanks, C.Johnson

    1. Hello and thank you for reaching out about the Heywood Wakefield desk. Unfortunately, we don’t carry HW furniture because of the difficulty of restoring it. We appreciate that you gave us consideration.

  6. Jeff says:

    What would a Lane Acclaim Cocktail Table and End Table had sold for in 1959?

    1. Great question! Unfortunately we don’t have any information on that. Sometimes you can find old newspaper advertisements with store prices. We do know that many Acclaim pieces had large production runs and were priced for the mass market. Shoppers could buy them in regional department stores as well as JC Penney and similar stores.

  7. Ryan says:

    We visited your shop in October. Looking for a unique coffee table- what do you have in the shop?

    1. We have multiple coffee tables, including several that are truly one of a kind. You can see current options in the showcase section at MidModMen.com.

  8. The available furniture is in the Showcase section at the very top of the site.

  9. We have had a few in the past but none recently. Try our friends in Omaha, Modlines. Tell Scott we sent you.

  10. Jay says:

    Do you repair/restore MCM furniture that you do not purchase? I have Acclaim dressers and a coffee table that need some restoration.

    1. Sorry but we don’t have the capacity for outside projects right now.

  11. Unfortunately, we have hundreds of pieces waiting for restoration and don’t have the capacity to take on outside projects.

  12. J. Sawyer says:

    Do you also buy from individuals, or take consignment pieces?

    1. We buy directly. Please send information to us at MidModMen@gmail.com. Thank you.

      Hello. We visited your store last month looking for a small desk. I see one on your website that looks exactly right. I know your store is closed righ now but my husband and I are coming into the city this Saturday, is there anyway we could meet with you and see the desk? It is the Finnline by Stanley desk for $795. My cell is 507-261-3932. Thanks so much, Liza

      1. The desk is one of the few things that’s not buried in the remodel. If you can arrive at 11am Jon will be there to help. Please confirm via email MidModMen@gmail.com.

    1. Please email photos to MidModMen @gmail.com. Thank you.

    Hi – I’m the person who was in the store asking abut campaign furniture. Here’s a link to an article that shows how its being used and mixed with more classic mid-century pieces.

      Thanks for sharing this. It’s a great inspiration piece that I’d like to share with our followers. Now I’m going to keep an eye out for campaign-style pieces!
