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.
Since 1993, AKO Design Center has outfitted homes around the world with quality, brand-name furniture.

The store's design team works with customers in their design studio to help create sophisticated looks for the home or workplace, and they also collaborate with manufacturers to produce stylish pieces that complement each other when purchased as a set or that add decorative accents to already existing design schemes.

From the Source imports much of its fine furniture and home accessories directly from Indonesia, while many of its warehouse items are vintage “discoveries” such as recovered sculptures and salvaged architectural pieces. The expansive showrooms offer a bevy of aesthetic delights, such as sleekly finished Drift trays in one-of-a-kind cuts ($48 each) or summer ice vases made from recycled glass ($125 each). Judging by its cover, the mahogany Ecco bookcase (unfinished $495, finished $550) is built to showcase lofty intellectual volumes or your heirloom collection of Full House DVDs. The visually and nominally diametric Urban Farm media console ($750) is made from reclaimed teak and steel.
