Acme – Northern Virginia Magazine’s “Best Vintage Home Finds”

Help us retain the title, and vote for us again in 2019!  The polls are open!

Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses..”
— Juvenal

Thanks to our customers and clients, Acme last year was voted “Best Vintage Home Finds” store in Northern Virginia Magazine’s annual “Best of Nova” poll.  We hope you will once again vote for us in this category!  It takes just about a minute to submit your vote!  Mention “I voted” in our store for an additional 5% discount off any purchase, including already-reduced prices!

Acme has just acquired a large selection of vintage Adrian Pearsall furniture.  One of America’s most unique mid-century designers, recognition and appreciation of Mr. Pearsall’s work has grown substantially in the last ten to fifteen years.  We have several iconic pieces that feature his sculptural, organic lines:

The “Jacks” side table.

The iconic “Jacks” coffee table — one of Adrian Pearsall’s best-known designs.

Stunning Adrian Pearsall lounge chair, reupholstered (not yet in store, but available by appointment).

An amazing Adrian Pearsall dining set — glass-top table and six chairs, all with beautiful sculptural wood bases. 

Restored Pearsall Model 2315-C Bent Arm Chair, wood refinished and new straps, ready for reupholstery in your choice of fabrics!
