Modern Conscience is a collaboration between two accomplished individuals; a Modern furniture historian and an expert furniture and fabrication craftsman. The result is a furniture studio specializing the restoration of vintage Modern furniture along side the fabrication of parts and components that empower collectors to preserve and repair the pieces in their personal collections.
Modern Conscience was founded in 2004 with the idea that vintage modern furniture and exceptionally crafted furniture, should be more accessible. Arising out of an obsession with modern chair design, the original focus was on the seminal work of Charles and Ray Eames and their fiberglass shells and bases. Modern Conscience offered, and continues to offer, unique original Eames chairs as well as expert restorations and the most accurate, highest-quality parts available in the furniture restoration market..
Modern Conscience has the pleasure of working with an international client base of collectors, dealers, and professionals. All of whom share Modern Conscience’s commitment to collecting and saving Modern furniture.
Modern Conscience offers a selection of hand-picked original modern chair and furniture designs, restoration services, and parts, spares and components for do-it-yourself restorations. All of our products are made in our own workshop, right here in the United States.
We welcome visits to our studio and workshop in Seattle by appointment. Click here to see it online.
The Modern Conscience Manifesto
Modern Conscience is committed to the preservation and restoration of vintage mid-century Modern design. Obsessed is perhaps a better word for it. Let’s work together to keep vintage furniture out of the landfill.
We believe in a healthy [unhealthy?] obsession with Modernism. We’ll take it either way. We simply can’t get enough.
We believe in our customers. Our customers drive us to find solutions to the toughest restoration challenges. Your enthusiasm lets us do what we love and we love you for that.
We believe in preservation and restoration. Mid-century modern design made a huge difference in our world and together we can make a difference by preserving it, restoring it, and using it in our everyday lives.
We believe in craftsmanship. You’re restoring something beautiful, something worth saving. You deserve the most accurate, highest quality products and services, no exceptions.
We believe in responsibility. We’re responsible for the world we live in. We’re committed to saving mid-century furniture and we’re equally committed to doing it in a way that’s responsible to the environment. We follow this rule in every aspect of our business. Our website is powered on 100% wind energy. We source non-toxic finishes like tung oil. And we source hardwoods and materials from sustainably managed sources. To name a few.
