Mid-century modernism united art and design with nature, replacing beds with Osprey nests and beehive hairdos with actual beehives. Find more comfortable forms of style with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of furniture, lamps, and artwork at Peaches.
Befittingly housed on historic Magazine Street, Peaches culls its distinctive mid-century modern cache of furniture and décor from around the country. Trade in pre-century boulder benches for the refinement of a vintage armchair from Hibernia Bank ($65), which sidles up amicably beside a Heywood Wakefield Ashcraft side table ($65). People tired of staring at photos of people they don’t know because they were taken in the future can instead adorn walls with the halcyon imagery of yesteryear with the Turner-esque Port of Call print ($95), or set their eyes on a 1976 bird sculpture ($85). The furnishers of Peaches will gladly scope out special pieces to fit a wish list, gift list, or listless list of places to sit.
