Shopper’s Diary: Modern 50 in Virginia

BY Julie Carlson

Located in Sterling, Virginia, Modern 50 has a serious-sounding mandate: to "discover intrinsically valuable decorative arts and furnishings to convey a different impression of 20th century design. We are a multidisciplinary art and design collective that strives to create an ever-evolving nonlinear consumer lifestyles collection." Further hipster cred: the shop makes regular direct deliveries to Brooklyn.
