What comes to mind when you hear Mid-Century Modern? As its name implies, this decorating style rose to fame in the mid-1940s to 1970s when simple yet slightly odd looks were all the rage. It created a timeless aesthetic that has transcended time and is still evident in most homes today. If you want to achieve a space that looks like a scene straight out of Pulp Fiction, make sure to hit these stores over the weekend: 



Established in August 2011, MODLiving Furnishing has since been working hard to meet the demands of clients everywhere.
