Find Your Vintage Oasis in Southern California
As any savvy shopper knows, the hunt for true mid-century treasure can be a challenging one. Far too many resale shops claim to have “vintage” finds, only to disappoint shoppers with their dusty plastic furniture and junk from the past decade or so. The founders of Urban Americana wanted to create a place where lovers of classic & retro style could truly enjoy a shopping experience unlike any other. Our goal was to design a shared space where like-minded local business owners could connect with customers who shared their passion for artisan goods.
We thought about the kind of place that vintage lovers would dream of finding, with countless mid-century gems all in a single space. Thus, our antique and design collective, Urban Americana, was born. For Long Beach locals and visitors alike, Urban Americana offers a unique shopping destination unlike anything else in the area. For shoppers that want to break away from the generic décor and furniture of big box stores and online retailers, our warehouse makes it easy to find the perfect unique piece to call your own.
Why Shop Vintage?
Thanks to online shopping and big box stores on every corner, it’s easy to get the basics to set up your space – but odds are, you’ll end up with the same boring pieces everyone else has. Instead of creating a space that has zero personality, you can enjoy the experience of adding elements that speak to your personal style. Urban America is the perfect place to find one-of-a-kind additions for your home, whether you have a compact studio apartment or a spacious house to decorate. You’ll have a space that’s completely unique to you and be able to enjoy the satisfaction of designing a comfortable home that suits your style and personality.
One of the best parts of vintage shopping is that there’s truly something for everyone. Whether you’re a fun-loving maximalist or someone who prefers to keep things simple and no-frills, classic style can fit the bill. The mid-century era, in particular, was an incredible time in design history, based on an appreciation of functionality, the juxtaposition of unique materials, a balance of traditional and nontraditional elements, and a mix of geometric and organic shapes.
For today’s vintage lovers, this translates to one key idea: mid-century modern is the design era that fits everyone. At Urban Americana, our dealers have an eagle eye for the best pieces from the mid-century era and beyond, so you’ll be able to journey through a warehouse packed full of stylish highlights from years past. Maybe you’re looking to furnish your entire space with classic furniture, or perhaps you just want to find the perfect accent to finish off a room. Whatever you’re shopping for, you can find it here.
