FEATURED MODERNICA ITEM
We are going to occasionally highlight a different Modernica item, to provide a glimpse into the thousands of customizable options Acme has available as an authorized Modernica dealer.  Modernica, based in California, makes a wide range of furniture, ceramics, and lighting.  We have a limited selection of floor samples, along with fabric swatches, wood samples, and fiberglass chips that allow us to work with customers to custom-design the perfect combination.  Mention this feature and you will receive an additional 5% discount on the Item of the Week, on top of our normal 10% discount off list price.  

 
The Modernica Split Rail Chair with Arms
The Split Rail series is characterized by sharp lines and angles, which contribute to a minimalist look. This is enhanced by an exposed frame, which reveals how both backrest and seat are supported.  Available in triple chrome-plated steel or solid North American walnut framing.


We hope to see you this weekend!
