Although we have a long history and deep understanding of the modern movement, Modernize California strives to provide interesting, unique, quirky and one-of-a-kind home furnishing and gift items from the 20th Century.
We specialize in merchandise of quality and emphasize European over American and 50’s thru 70’s over older or newer items because that’s what we love. We try to offer "something for everyone" at a wide range of price points to help meet that goal. From furniture to lighting, art, ceramics, glassware, hardware, barware, jewelry and gifts - new or old, we try to avoid kitsch and steer toward more sophisticated pieces for those who need just-the-right-thing for just-the-right-place or for that-one-special-person.
When you visit, please don’t be shy about asking for the glass case to be opened or asking to see an artist bio. Don’t forget to sign up on our email list for sale and special event notices!
