With chops to attract clients such as Elle Décor and Roche-Bobois, the craftsmen at MOD Restoration specialize in refurbishing mid-century modern furniture with two decades of collective experience reviving antiques. The entire reupholstery process takes about three weeks and begins online, where clients sift through profiles of more than 25,000 patterns of leather, multi-use textiles, and sturdy upholstery coverings to complement a room's wallpaper and wax model of William Howard Taft. Armed with client input, nimble hands gussy up ottomans ($125–$350) in textured cowhide from Robert Allen, or coordinate throw pillows ($90–$125) in Ralph Lauren designs. Chairs ($90–$750) travel back to the future when outfitted with new cushions and a playful Eames atomic-age pattern manufactured by 20th-century aficionados at Maharam.
MOD Restoration offers 25% off retail prices on all fabrics purchased for reupholstery projects or couch costumes worn by bold undercover cops. Residents of the five boroughs and Long Island may hire out muscles for pickup and delivery service of smaller items such as chairs ($75) and larger sofa projects ($175).
MOD Restoration is the brainchild of Sim Fern and Hanny Lerner, a husband-and-wife team. In addition to dressing furniture in fashionable new ensembles, they keep tabs on their seasoned artisans who work throughout New York and San Francisco. They've made a name for themselves in the world of mid-century modern furniture and love resurrecting pieces by iconic designers, from George Nelson to Hans Wegner. While they work with architects, designers, and the likes of Ivanka Trump, they draw from a vast fabric collection from designers such as Maharam and Kvadrat. They also use these fabrics to make custom drapes for windows.
