Modern furniture. Contemporary furniture. Unique, Post-Modern, Mid-Century. While every phrase may conjure up a different decade, designer or even design material, they all embrace the principle that we achieve greatness in design when form follows function -- a phrase coined by American Architect Louis Sullivan.
These three words did nothing less than define a revolution in design and furniture manufacturing that began in the mid twentieth century and continues to thrive and surprise us now.
And surprise is something you’ll experience the moment you visit Switch Modern. Our commitment to bringing you this ongoing revolution is why we exist. It’s not our goal to simply help you find what you need and then “go directly to checkout.” Rather, our goal is to inspire you, provoke you, to introduce you to new ideas and designers -- furniture manufacturers with home and office collections that’ll take your imagination on a journey.
For some, this will lead to the innovative high-end furniture designs of Gandia Blasco, Poliform, Minotti, Poltronau Frau or Fritz Hansen -- believers that beauty comes from the exploring and creating seating, tables, rugs and consoles that support and enhance the way we live today. Innovators who create objects for a purpose, but also believe those same objects should and can be appreciated when not in use at all.
Some of the most notable and lasting examples of this come from the “modern” pioneers.” These are the giants -- whose amorphic chairs and use of mass manufacturing have landed them and their work in museum collections around the world and whose work we proudly make available. They’re icons like Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Richard Sapper, Verner Panton, Joe Colombo, Norman Cherner and many, many more.
