RESOURCES

If you're remodeling a Mid Century Home or just redecorating, here are some links to local professionals and vendors that can bring your vision to life!

 

 

Start Here!

A great resource for "all things Mid Century"

is Atomic Ranch Magazine published in Irvine, CA.

They have their finger on the pulse of mid mod in

So. Cal. and across the world. So, if you're ready

to find an architect for your mid century dream home,

these are some of the most notable in the area.

 

Architects

One of the first that comes to mind is David Soloman and his amazing mid mod structures. You'll have no problem finding Harman Baldwin, take a look at their website for distinctive Claremont area homes they've designed and built. Void Design Studio has a flair for the MCM. They are not far away and a solid commercial building background too. Also, BN Design Build .

Designers

Searching for the perfect look to set your kitchen apart, Kelly Ferm is a local who really knows his stuff. Want to add charm to your interior? Visit Sarah Arndt.  Own an Eichler? Check out Desitination Eichler for a designer that has honed her craft.

 

Landscaping Design/Build

Fortunately, there are design build landscapers that are local and highly engaged in the MCM style.  The first is Natural earth which offers the textures and organics you need but also the hardscapes and lighting to make it all pop.  Visit Treats Landscaping who has been building since 1988 and Jonescape in Montclair. There is also EPTD Design who has a pedigree in commercial work in Claremont and with a number of residential projects.

 

If you want to go outside the city limits there is Alan Bernstein. And Architerra Design Group and Steven Billings Landscape Architecture each of these are part of the American Society for Landscape Architects and carry impressive portfolios.

 

Furniture

Start your search with Modern for all in Upland where you'll find chairs tables and specialty pieces among the period lamps, artwork and sculpture. A true treasure trove of finds. There's Not Another Mob Snob in Riverside that has refurbished pieces to complete any Mid Mod Decor. Simply Mod was ramping up their site when we visited but they will have new products arriving soon. They're one to keep an eye on and are right next door in San Dimas. An amazing selection of modern bar-stools and furniture at Brage Living Furniture in Montclair that is worth an afternoon browse.
