Sponsor Spotlight: Modern Montage
I would like to welcome a new sponsor to the site: Modern Montage. Located in Alexandria just around the corner from Hollin Hills and close to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope Leighey House, Modern Montage specializes in authentic Danish and mid-century modern furnishings and design. After using his intellectual side for 17 years as a software engineer, Edwin Roman decided to pursue his artistic interests after a trip to Palm Springs. The mid-century modern architecture in desert conjured up memories of the mid-century neighborhoods of his youth in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He started collecting mid-century modern furniture and decor to reconnect to his childhood memories. This eventually led to his decision 10 years ago to open up a business that allowed him to pursue his passion to inform, find and help others appreciate mid-century modern design.
Modern Montage is located in the Mt. Vernon Antique Center at 8101 Richmond Highway (Route 1) in Alexandria, about 5 miles south of Old Town Alexandria and about 10 minutes from the Capital Beltway. Modern Montage encompasses 2,000 square feet of original Danish, Scandinavian and American high quality mid-century modern furniture and decorative art with a major focus on designer pieces from the 1950s through the 1970s. Modern Montage is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday through Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The shop is closed on Tuesdays. Modern Montage receives new items weekly so make sure to check out their website frequently.
