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. Where ordering larger items such as sofas or dinner tables over the internet typically gets expensive is when shipping costs are calculated, but at EZ Mod we also offer free shipping to anywhere in the 48 continental United States, without requiring a minimum purchase. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Shopping for modern classic furniture is hard enough without the impending threat of higher prices for consumers. Unfortunately, most news outlets are echoing the fears that the furniture industry is in for higher prices. Shoppers at Ezmod Furniture can take comfort though, our everyday amazing deals are perfect for your budget.
Various furniture manufacturers and business consultants are pointing to the increasing prices of raw materials as well as the increasing costs of labor as reasons why they feel furniture prices will increase. Another major issues it he rising cost of shipping from Asia to the United States as much of the goods in America are manufactured in Asia. So far, some furniture stores are raising prices on their modern classic furniture and other furniture items. A shop in Michigan raised prices by 2 percent this week. That may not seem like much, but a 2 percent increase in Michigan could be a 10 percent increase in New York or California, and that’s just for starters.
As an example, a furniture store in North Carolina said that a replica of a chair used by President John F. Kennedy sold for $199 for 14 years and is now priced at $225! That’s a 12.5 percent increase on just one item. If you wanted six of these chairs for your dining set, that would be a $150 increase.

Economists are calling the current economic slump the “Great Recession” and are stating that it is the worst slow down economically since the 1930’s. What is incredibly frustrating for many people is the fact that the recession is creating diverging affects, hitting most Americans where it hurts – their wallets. The price of raw materials has gone up, as demand has gone down because of unemployment. That has led to greater unemployment, greater pessimism over the economy and lower spending.
When it comes to modern classic furniture, Americans are faced with an increase in the cost of the raw materials used to make their furniture, namely timber, leather, foam, glass, cardboard and event he chemicals used as finishing sprays and coats. There is an impending 30 percent hike in the cost of steel as well, which could cause some department stores to charge outrageous prices for furniture, just to cover the cost of materials. At a time when the budgets of many Americans are at an absolute low, the fear of rising prices has many people worried. One observed, the president of an import/export company, said “The skyrocketing costs of raw materials has all of us living in very interest times…this was monumental and something not seen in 40 years.”
