Pike chair from Rejuvenation in SoDo

As well as a comely collection of contemporary modern pieces—from Blu Dot to Kartell—Chartreuse Modern (Belltown, 2609 First Ave.; 877.328.4844; chartreusemodern.com) shows an eclectic field of midcentury pieces, from accessories, such as a sky-blue Holmegaard vase carafe ($159), to chairs, such as an Eero Saarinen–designed side chair ($325), still bearing its Knoll production sticker.

The mid-mod masters—Eames, Nelson and Starck—are well represented at Design Within Reach (Belltown, 1918 First Ave.; 206.443.9900; dwr.com), but it keeps enriching its inventory, including a new iteration of Jean Prouvé’s sturdy, two-toned standard chair ($995).

Famed as a repository for lights and hardware of all eras, Rejuvenation (SoDo, 2910 First Ave., 206.382.1901; rejuvenation.com. Also in Portland.) has a very nice midcentury mashup, from authentic Moe teardrop pendants ($275) to mod–style wire chairs ($299) and the Mad Men–esque Pike leather-and-chrome armchair ($1,595). Also of note: In March, it launched a new bath collection line with more than 100 items.

Space Oddity Vintage Furniture (Ballard, 5318 22nd Ave. NW; 206.331.8054) runs the mid-mod gamut from playful Burke tulip chairs to a sleek steelcase Parsons table ($295).

The shop is literally slim, but Ten 22 Home’s (Fremont, 4258 Fremont Ave. N; 206.457.5728; ten22home.com) supply of Scandinavian and Danish midcentury furniture seems endless. Recent acquisitions include rare rattan barstools ($350 each) by Mary Beatrice Bloch and an Arne Norell Ari lounge chair ($2,300).

Head to Homestead (Madrona, 829 29th Ave.; 206.588.5519; homesteadseattle.com), for vintage, Art Deco and midcentury industrial furniture and art, lovingly curated by husband-and-wife duo Michele and Ryan Tansey, who curate their finds in situ on the first floor of their home and welcome shoppers by appointment only. Expect to find a stellar collection of chairs, from wingbacks to Chesterfields (from $325), as well as benches and footstools (from $195) reupholstered by the couple themselves.
