Announcements!

We will be CLOSED from DECEMBER 17th TO JANUARY 9th !



We will heading to Denmark to enjoy the cozy Christmas season with our friends and family this year.  




But we confess...we have an ulterior motive...  




We have a lot of wonderful merchandise currently stockpiled in our warehouse in Vildbjerg.  We will be working hard at getting it packed up and shipped back to the states while we're there.  From pottery to sofas and everything in between, you should see a lot of new Mid Century Danish treasure arriving by late January... if all goes well!




If you have special requests, please submit them to us before we leave.  We can't guarantee anything, but we are always happy to keep an eye out for specific items for our customers!

About Us

The Collection

At Be Modern, we specialize in Mid Century Danish Modern furniture in teak and rosewood from the 50's to the 70's.  But, our ever changing, highly curated, all-vintage inventory also includes American Mid Century furniture, fine art, textiles, ceramics, jewelry and other vintage accessories compatible with the Danish Modern aesthetic. 

No truck? No problem.

We understand that furniture is BIG and getting it from here to there is a challenge.  Therefor, we offer FREE curbside delivery within 50 miles of Ipswich (including all of Greater Boston).  We do not do in-home delivery, but we can certainly get it to you!

Come Hygge With Us!

In the spirit of Danish Hygge, we offer a cozy, make-yourself-at-home enviornment where you can relax, sit down and have a coffee or a chat, and let us get to know you.  But, hey, if you're not into that, don't worry - it's not required!
