Social clubs are, largely, things of the past. In decades past, social clubs served as swanky places where wealthy socialites, especially men, went to smoke, have a few drink, mingle and take a break from work or family life.

Coffee tables are one of the oddest pieces of furniture anyone owns. They are used do hold snacks during dinner parties, to hold dessert during movie night, to put feet on top of during Monday Night Football, as an extra seat and more. They must be durable, practical and still tie the room together. At Ezmod Furniture, we have a selection of modern classic coffee tables that can suit any lifestyle, room décor and color scheme

Who doesn’t like to sit down to a good meal in a sleek, modern dining room? While a comfortable dining room requires only a table and sturdy chairs, dining room furniture styles can vary widely. The look of modern furniture, especially dining room furniture, can really add to your dining experience. While many people stick with traditional wooden tables and chairs, modern furniture designs offer some innovations that are both sophisticated and exciting and EZ Mod Furniture has a large variety of all the best modern furniture designs.
In the middle of the 20th century, modern furniture designers began experimenting with new materials for dining room furniture with spectacular results. Technological advancements in plastic, metal and even plywood made all sorts of designs possible that would have been impossible with standard wood and older furniture design techniques. Finnish American designer and architect Eero Saarinen’s experiments with molded plastic produced the iconic “Tulip” chair and its matching fiberglass dinner table. Composed of a curved, almost egg-like black or white plastic shell, the seat of the Tulip chair comes either with arms or without and sits atop a sturdy aluminum base that looks much like the stem of a flower. EZ Mod Furniture offers these beautiful chairs in either black or white, and with removable round red or black seat cushions for a comfortable place to sit in during those long after-dinner chats over a glass of wine or cup of coffee. The rather “Space Age” look of the Tulip chairs even earned them spots on some of television’s most popular shows about space travel in the 1960s. The matching round, white table has a nearly identical, stem-like base, is 29 inches high and comes in diameters of either 35 or 47 inches to fit both larger and smaller dining rooms.
If the Space Age look isn’t quite right, but you still love modern furniture, consider EZ Mod Furniture’s Bertoia-style wire mesh chairs. Metal is a bit of an unusual material for dining room furniture, but Harry Bertoia, an Italian American artist, jewelry maker and modern furniture designer, transforms industrial steel wire into a large, sturdy and comfortable place to sit. Contoured to fit the human body, this chair also features a leatherette-padded foam cushion in black, white or red and is sure to match any dining room’s color scheme.
If you are looking for quality modern furniture at prices you can afford, then EZ Mod Furniture is the place to go.

One of the biggest departures of modern furniture design from more traditional furniture design is in the use of materials. Traditional furniture designers tend to stick with tried-and-true materials such as wood, especially for important furniture pieces such as a coffee table. Modern furniture designers, however, have experimented with new materials and methods such as acrylic, plastic, fiberglass, metal, glass, and even molded plywood. The effect of using these more unusual materials makes a big difference in the look and feel of a living room or office. Acrylic and plastic have the ability to take on shapes and forms that wood cannot, while also having color possibilities that are generally not available from wood furniture. At EZ Mod Furniture, we are proud to offer some of the finest modern classic furniture reproductions to give your home with the sleek, clean look of modernism.
One of the most versatile and innovative furniture offerings you’ll find at EZ Mod is the set of three acrylic nesting coffee tables. These simple, three-sided pieces come in either black or clear acrylic to fit your room’s color scheme and are three different sizes to suit your space’s needs. They function well as both end tables or coffee tables and because they are not attached to each other, can be placed all around your home or office to display plants or artwork, to put your coffee mug on when you want to put it down, or can be used as a convenient place to drop your purse or briefcase when you come home. The clear set makes an especially useful addition to a room if you want to highlight a pretty rug underneath or interesting wood or tile floor pattern. Both the clear and black sets are made of high-quality acrylic, which makes them scratch-resistant and built to last.
Not only does EZ Mod Furniture present iconic modern classic furniture designs, but they do so at prices significantly lower than other modern furniture stores. Both the black and clear sets of acrylic nesting coffee tables would sell for as much as $180 at other stores, but EZ Mod offers the set for just $145. EZ Mod Furniture also offers free shipping to anywhere in the continental US to help you avoid costly shipping fees. If you’re looking for a simple, sturdy and stylish coffee table to pull together your home or office, visit our website today to find great deals on modern classic furniture.

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.

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.

When most people think of modern furniture designs, they may envision the straight, simple lines of sofas by Le Corbusier, coffee tables inspired by the sculptural presence of Isamu Noguchi and even the use of such unusual materials as acrylic or plastic. Most of these items would typically be found in a person’s living room, or even dining room. Bedroom furniture, however, stubbornly tends to remain ornate carved-wood or metal framed beds with matching dressers and nightstands for most people. EZ Mod Furniture, however, makes it a priority to bring quality modern furniture design into bedrooms all over the country as well as living rooms, offices and dining rooms.
Even if the majority of bedroom furniture persists in being elaborately carved wooden headboards and matching footboards, or fussy metal frames with floral motifs, EZ Mod is proud to offer several fabric or leather-covered bed with all the simplicity of line and style that is so characteristic of modern furniture design. EZ Mod’s “Utrecht” bed features a padded headboard and footboard upholstered in Bicast leather with contrasted stitching for a stylish hint of contrasted color. EZ Mod’s CHO bed is padded and covered with dark twill fabric and features under-mattress storage for those particularly tight on space. For safety, the bed locks in place when raised to access storage. Brass-toned nails line the top and side seams of the tall, simple headboard for a dramatic yet refined look.
When it comes to modern furniture design, EZ Mod does not scrimp on quality, but still manages to offer some of the best prices around. EZ Mod’s queen-sized Utrecht bed would sell for as much as $830 at other furniture retailers, but EZ Mod offers it at the much more budget-friendly $729.99. The CHO fabric-covered bed would cost you up to $1,500 at other stores, but EZ Mod offers an even bigger savings in this case, selling the bed for $400 less at just $1,099.99.
Just because you need bedroom furniture does not mean you have to settle for the fussy, old-fashioned styles that remind you of your grandmother’s house. EZ Mod Furniture makes it a point to carry the clean, simple lines of modern furniture design as far into your home as the bedroom. Besides being a place to sleep, your bedroom should be a place to relax that reflects the modern style of the rest of your house. If you are looking for stylish furniture to fill your bedroom, come in to EZ Mod Furniture today.
