Here are some useful bits of wisdom from Ezmod Furniture, the leader in modern classic furniture:
1. If you can see the furniture in person somewhere, you should go see it. While Ezmod offers great prices on modern classic furniture, and we stand behind our quality, it might help the see the furniture in person so you can see how it will fit with your existing setup.
2. Do your research. At Ezmod, we are confident that the furniture we offer on our site, and the price we offer it at, are some of (if not THE) best in the industry. We welcome you to shop around, see other deals, see what other online furniture retailers have to offer and go from there.
3. Make sure your computer is protected. While Ezmod sells modern classic furniture on a website that is secure, your computer may not be. Since you will be entering in personal financial information, make sure you are in a secure location and that you have adequate software on your computer to protect your sensitive financial data.
4. Keep an eye out for sales. Even at Ezmod Furniture, where we have modern classic furniture at a low price everyday, we run sales that will help you save money. If you do not need a couch, chair, table or ottoman right away, then monitor our site at least once a week to keep an eye on new offers we may be having.
5. Make sure to measure the space in the room where the new furniture is going. At Ezmod, we will post the dimensions of every piece of modern classic furniture we sell. However, it is important that you take the time to measure the space where you hope to put the new furniture, so that you are not cramped for space in a particular room of your home or office.
As you can see, there are plenty of things to keep in mind when buying modern classic furniture online, not all of which have to do with the furniture itself. Ezmod has created an easy to use web portal that allows you to buy furniture online, making your life easier and keeping your wallet as full of cash as possible.

Ravaged by the recent recession, both the housing industry and the furniture industry have been radically changed. Furniture industry executives and investors who pay special attention to the furniture have seen remarkable changes. In 2007, the domestic furniture and mattress industry had sales worth $91 billion. In 2008, that number dropped 10 percent due to the crushing recession that hit every industry. In 2009, the dropoff continued with another 15 percent drop. People are holding onto their furniture longer, shopping for deals or looking for great deals on modern classic furniture.
One third of the 100 biggest furniture retailers over the last 10 years have closed, including large names such as Huffman Koos, Good’s, Seaman’s, Levitz and Wickes. Such radical overhaul has created a vacuum which new furniture retailers have stepped into, such as Ezmod Furniture which offers unique modern classic furniture at an amazing price.
To be honest though, the reason Ezmod Furniture is thriving in the modern classic furniture industry, and the reason so many other retailers are falling apart, has much to do with conditions before the recession started. People are less interested in buying furniture from department stores that are bulky, expensive, un-original and marked up. People in urban centers have smaller apartments and cannot purchase the large furniture sold by many department stories. Ezmod offers furniture that fits smaller locations much better.
People also moved towards shops like IKEA, which offer cheaply made products that inexpensive. Ezmod offers high quality modern classic furniture that is inexpensive, a combination many people are searching for.
Baby Boomers are moving towards “disposable” furniture since they are headed into retirement, and their children want quality furniture that an inexpensive price. The days of our grandparents heading to the department store for a couch are pretty much at an end.
Large retailers are also starting to catch on, such as Target, Walmart and Costco, although they are still not offering the kind of quality that will given consumers long lasting modern classic furniture. Unfortunately, people’s wallets are turning them towards cheaply made products instead of quality furniture that is inexpensive.
At Ezmod Furniture, our modern classic furniture comes in a variety of colors, designs, fabrics and materials, giving you an endless supply of home furnishings. Whether you are a college graduate putting together your first apartment or a new homeowner filling your first house, Ezmod has exactly what you need at a price you can afford.

Shopping for modern classic furniture is an intense process, filled with price comparisons, hours of testing and negotiating with sales people. The process can be ruined however if the company, department store or furniture store is not able to deliver your furniture on time. The Internet complaint boards are filled with people who spent hours trying to choose the right couch or chair, only to have the retailer fail to deliver the item on time.
Here are just a few complaints people have had regarding the deliver of their modern classic furniture:
- I bought a dining room table and a sectional from bobs on 12/09 delivery address corrected 4 times they still got that wrong. Called about table having a chipped piece they tried to convince me it was meant to be that way.
- My wife and I ordered a dining room set for $8, 000. They told us when it would be delivered, and that we would receive a call the day before to schedule delivery. When no call came, I called the store, who told me they sub-contracted out delivery to some outfit known as Executive Delivery. Hah. I called the number, and could only get to voice mail. Once they have your money, you're pretty much on your own.
- My wife & I purchased a sofa and chairs on 2-1-09, since it was an import I was told that it take 12 to 16 weeks upon delivery, around the 20th week and countless calls my furniture was delivered. Two weeks after delivery I noticed the padding on one of the arms was missing, after continuous calls and months passing, an agent came out to my home inspected the chair and confirmed it needed to be replaced. A follow-up letter was delivered to me on 2-16-10 stating I would receive the replacement within 10-12 weeks, after the tenth week, calls were made to the company on the status of the arm, since it was replaceable. On 5-10-10 I received a call stating I would receive a re placement chair at no cost, but it take another 10-=12 weeks.
As you can see, just picking the right modern classic furniture for you is not the end of the process. If you choose a retailer that does not care about its customers, you could be waiting months and months to receive your furniture, instead of days or weeks.
At Ezmod, our delivery policy is honest and straight forward. Orders usually ship within 1-3 business days, customer orders may take 6-8 weeks, and on any out of stock items we will notify you immediately. If you do not want to wait for an out of stock item, you can get a refund. We also have a comprehensive and straight forward return policy.
Ezmod does not just provide modern classic furniture; we provide quality service with an eye towards serving every one of our customers’ needs.

When shopping for modern furniture, it may seem like buying online is the least expensive option –until you look at how much shipping costs. Since bulky furniture items such as bed frames or couches can be exceptionally heavy and difficult to ship, it’s no wonder that shipping can be so prohibitively expensive when ordering online. EZ Mod Furniture, however, takes a different approach. Even while offering quality modern furniture reproductions at significantly lower pricepoints than their competitors, EZ Mod Furniture also guarantees free shipping on furniture purchases to anywhere in the 48 continental United States with no minimum purchase requirement. Not only does EZ Mod ship their products to your home or office door for free, they only charge sales tax on orders within the state of California, saving you even more.
EZ Mod Furniture goes beyond saving you potentially hundreds of dollars in shipping fees, however. EZ Mod also features a “No Hassle” return policy to make your life easier. Once your home or office furnishings are delivered, if you are for any reason unsatisfied with them, you can return the items in their original condition and packaging within seven days for your money back. Please note that a 15% restocking fee must be paid by the customer, in addition to shipping charges.
EZ Mod Furniture prides itself on offering people top-notch modern furniture reproductions at prices everyone can afford. Take, for example, EZ Mod’s molded plastic rocking chairs inspired by the work of Charles and Ray Eames. These aren’t your grandmother’s rocking chairs. The Eameses were well-known for experimenting with new and innovative materials for furniture and initially made these chairs using fiberglass and steel. EZ Mod has taken their work one step farther and makes the seat of the rocking chair with recycled polypropylene plastic. In keeping with the most exciting aspects of modern furniture design, these chairs feature a molded plastic seat with armrests and are available in blue, white, red or green with sturdy chrome steel legs attached to wooden runners for a smooth rocking motion. While most competitors might sell these chairs for as much as $380 each, EZ Mod carries them for less than half that price at an astonishing $159.99 each. When it comes to quality, style, price and service in modern furniture, EZ Mod can’t be beaten.

Anyone who follows trends in home furnishings knows that the public’s taste is cyclical. For the last few years, it was the “shabby chic” look that invaded stores and made its way into people’s homes in an attempt to make a house look comfortable and well-worn. Inevitably, however, tastes are once again changing and this time furniture design is trending back towards the clean, simple style of modernism.
Modern furniture design, which really came to prominence towards the middle of the 20th century, is characterized by bright color schemes, clean, unadorned lines and the use of nontraditional materials for common furniture pieces. Take, for example, the work of Japanese American designer Isamu Noguchi: his wood and glass coffee table is as much a sculptural work of art as it is a functional coffee table. The table top is a softly rounded glass triangle supported by a wooden base. The two halves of the base are identical and inverted, creating a sort of mirror image of each other. Noguchi’s modern classic design stands in a stark contrast to more traditional (or even “shabby chic”) versions of coffee tables which tended to be entirely made of wood, often with elaborately carved details.
Perhaps one of the most famous examples of modern classic furniture design is provided by the work of Swiss-French designer Le Corbusier. His three-seat sofas remain iconic for their modern style and feel. Unlike traditional sofas that feature rounded edges and have an over-stuffed, cozy look, Le Corbusier’s sofas are highly structured with clean, straight lines on all the cushions, a straight back and a stainless steel tube frame to pull the cushions together and give the couch support and shape. While still providing a comfortable place to sit, this sofa is far from shabby.
If you are looking to furnish your home or office in the modern classic style, come to EZ Mod Furniture. At EZ Mod, we make it a point to offer high-quality reproductions of iconic modern furniture designs at prices that are friendly to any budget. The Le Corbusier sofa mentioned above can retail for over $1,000 at other modern furniture stores, but you can find it at EZ Mod for just $819. The Isamu Noguchi coffee table we talked about is just $360 at EZ Mod while other stores sell it for as much as $500. Come to EZ Mod Furniture today to find quality modern classic furniture reproductions at amazing prices.

Most people want their home or office to look smart and stylish. If you are on a tight budget, however, you might feel the need to sacrifice some of your style in order to be practical. Your personal style might be the clean, trim lines and innovative shapes of modern furniture design, and if it is, then EZ Mod Furniture is just the place for you to find exactly the pieces for your home or office that you have been looking for. At EZ Mod, we make it a point to offer quality reproductions of some of the most sought-after modern furniture designs at prices that will save you bundles of money.
Take, for instance, the wooden slat bench designed by American modern furniture design pioneer George Nelson: while other furniture retailers list its price at $335, EZ Mod Furniture offers it to you for just $209. First designed in 1948, this solid yet simple hardwood bench features slats in a natural finish atop black wooden legs. Because the design of the Nelson bench is so simple, it can be used for a variety of purposes such as extra seating, a place to display plants or artwork and can even be used as a coffee table. Popular because of its simple but appealing design, the Nelson bench can be seen in homes, offices, lobbies and even libraries all over the world. EZ Mod also goes one step further and offers it in a black on black option to better fit your home or office’s color scheme, as well as in either four-foot-long or five-foot-long versions.
EZ Mod Furniture is able to offer you both quality and great prices by selling directly over the internet with no middlemen around to take a cut. We are able to keep prices low and to ensure that you get the most for your money by working directly with vendors and manufacturing our products in our very own factory.

Not only are you saving money with our discount prices, but you’re saving potentially hundreds of dollars in shipping fees as well. For stylish yet economical modern furniture designs, the choice is simple: EZ Mod Furniture has the best selection of modern furniture designs at prices you can afford.

You do not have to be wealthy to be able to have a stylish, well-designed home or office. EZ Mod Furniture makes it both easy and affordable to fill your living room, dining room, office or bedroom with chic modern classic furniture. EZ Mod is proud to offer reproductions of some of the most well-known and admired modern furniture designs.
For the living room, consider the sleek look of Swiss-French architect and modern furniture design superstar Le Corbusier. His three seat sofa has, in many ways, defined modern classic furniture style. Whereas traditional sofas come with plush, rounded arms and backrests, Le Corbusier broke the sofa down into its functional components: cushions supported by a frame. The result is a straight-lined sofa that is composed of stream-lined, square cushions supported by a tubular stainless steel frame that still manages to be a comfortable place to sit. While most furniture retailers would sell you this popular piece for a whopping $1,119, EZ Mod makes it affordable at just $819.
If it is extra seating you need, consider the molded plastic rocking chairs reproduced from the inspired modern classic furniture designs of Charles and Ray Eames. This husband and wife team was known for their innovative use of materials and color and the rocking chair shows this off spectacularly. EZ Mod Furniture carries this unusual plastic-seated rocking chair in four different colors to suit your room’s color scheme, with intricate chrome steel wire tube legs and a solid ash wood base for smooth rocking.
If you’ve been searching for a sleek new dining room set, then the “Tulip” chairs and matching table are a great find. Reproduced from the work of Finnish American architect and modern classic furniture designer Eero Saarinen, the fiberglass-topped table comes in either 35” size or 47” size, with coordinating Tulip chairs available in either white or black molded plastic with red or black removable seat cushions. The Tulip chairs in particular have been featured in television and film because of their futuristic look and their innovative use of plastic. While the Tulip dinner table would set you back as much as $990 at other stores, EZ Mod offers it at the much more budget friendly $495. The matching chairs would cost you nearly $300 at most modern classic furniture stores, but EZ Mod offers them at the highly discounted price of $175 each.
Modern classic furniture design is not only within your reach but within your budget at EZ Mod furniture. Visit our website today to find quality modern furniture reproductions at prices you can afford.
