New Mid-Century Modern Inventory At Acme!

New Inventory and Special on Smilow Rail Backs

“Though recognized and coveted by collectors, Smilow’s work remains little known to the mainstream.”
— Dwell Magazine, Mid-Century Designer Focus: Mel Smilow, June 18, 2013

This weekend, we have some great new items coming into our store.  First is a large and tall vintage teak sideboard/storage/bookcase/display unit, in excellent condition.
Finished on the back, this can be used as a room divider.

Next is a vintage Plycraft lounge chair and ottoman.  Usable as-is — it is quite comfortable, but has some color variation and fading.  We can have this professionally reupholstered in your choice of materials, including leather, Naugahyde, or fabric.  Note that this chair is on hold through this weekend for clients on our customer request list.

Special Price on Smilow Sofa and Lounge Chair!  $1000+ discounts!
This weekend we are marking down our stunning Smilow Rail Back Sofa and a matching Rail Back Lounge Chair:  $700 off the sofa, and $300 off the chair!  Buy both for an additional discount.  Both are ready to be reupholstered in your choice of fabrics.  These are highly collectible pieces, and will look stunning once reupholstered.


Here’s an example of a different Smilow sofa reupholstered in Maharam Marquee “Penny” fabric (this is actually my sofa, currently in my living room!).  This is one of several fabrics available at Acme, and thousands of other fabrics available from our upholsterer.
Maharam Marquee in “Penny,” “Aegean,” and “Semisweet.”  Many other fabrics available!

We hope to see you this weekend!
