Purple Moon owners Chuck and Connie Hamsher are expanding their business. Recently opened, Modern by Design is a furniture shop that compliments their original store — selling vintage midcentury modern pieces.
The store caters to the rising interest among consumers for classic modern pieces, yet keeps the price friendly with its inventory of “reissued” furniture. Though the couple are aware that selling copies of the original pieces would raise eyebrows of serious collectors, they are confident that they have a market for these pieces in Charleston. Original pieces that sell for over $1,000 to $3,000 can be bought at Modern by Design for a fraction of the price — $300 to $1,000 approximately.
If you’re re-decorating this spring, drop by Modern by Design and pick up a couple of ideas or maybe even a couple of ghost chairs.
