4) Modernica

Lovers of mid-century modern design classics will feel right at home in this showroom. For 25 years, this locally owned and operated company has been crafting Case Study furniture. In fact, they use the same machinery used to fabricate the original Eames chairs for their rainbow-hued fiberglass shell chairs.

The modern homewares and gifts at this small boutique are both functional and beautiful – objects that would easily be at home in some of the nearby Neutra homes. There are Comme des Garçons wallets, a gorgeous selection of local jewelers, and whimsical kids toys.
