Original in Berlin

10 Sep

Shame on me for being so US-centric.  I love Mid2Mod and The Mod Fix.  One would think that with all the time I spend traveling, I would put more focus on mid-century design in other regions.  And given the fact that almost half the readers of this blog come from outside the US, I will commit to doing just that.  To start off this project on the best foot possible, I’d like to share a European shop that offers a wonderful variety of mid-century products to my continental friends.

From the charming Lars, who brought this store to my attention:

ORIGINAL IN BERLIN offers a wide variety of vintage mid-century furniture as well as new products from Alexander Girard, Russel Wright Pottery, George Nelson Bubble Lamps and a big collection by Austrian designer Carl Auböck. For everybody that can´t make it to our beautiful showroom located in the heart of Berlin, we also ship worldwide. Founded in summer 2010, ORIGINAL IN BERLIN is now starting to offer a larger collection of Scandinavian, French, Dutch, Italian and American design furniture out of our new 350qm Showroom. Our own upholsterers and carpenters can make every restoration or custom made requests on any piece of design furniture possible. For this, we only use KVADRAT & MISSONI Fabrics so as ELMO and SØRENSEN Leather.

AND as if that weren’t cool enough, Original in Berlin is offering 10% off all Charles Eames furniture to MCML readers.  In your order, just write  “Hello Mid Century Modern Love Eames” for your discount.  And if you do purchase something, please send me a photo!

    Thanks for the mention, Brandy! I heard from Lars too, and I need to pass on the information about Original in Berlin on my blog soon. Looks like a great store.

      You are welcome! Looks pretty cool indeed. What I like is that everyone’s stores have their own personalities. Vive la difference!

    That photo with the guy in it, where we see the back of a wing back chair – I swear I have a drawing of the same chair, from a similar perspective, from one of my childhood sketchbooks, with my mom, smoking a cigarette. Let’s plan a field trip to Berlin!

    Dear Brandy, they have a wonderful store! Maybe you take a look at our “Wohnzimmer” (living room):
    At the moment we offer some nice German pottery and wonderful Teak wood accessories to decorate a nice mcm home.
    Kind regards from Germany

    ps: I love your blog!
