I've never failed in finding a great gift (or treat for myself) at Abode. The shop is comfortable and quiet, the owners are friendly, and Lucy the French Bulldog is always happy to greet new guests. Although Abode focuses on Mid-Century Modern decor and furniture, even those who prefer a more modern look well find a treasure or two! I've addition to furniture, Abode also offers accessories and accents from local shops and artists, which I appreciate as a lover of all things ROC. You won't leave empty handed, so stop in!
I looked around my apartment recently and suddenly noticed that I was in dire need of some new home decor: a lot of my stuff has been around since my college days. Yeesh. I kept seeing the awesome reviews of Abode, so I popped in one rainy afternoon on my day off. Abode is situated right in the center of the Wedge, and I easily parked on the street.
Abode is filled with mid century goodies, and the owners have made great use of their rectangular-shaped space. I love when I go somewhere and EVERYTHING is for sale, and that true here! There is so much to look at, and I immediately fell in love with a copper sun wall hanging.
This is my kind of place. Actually, I'd love to live inside this store. Totally not a real life possibility so progressively I will start to transform my whole home into a mid-century / modern inspired home with pieces from Abode. I have some designs to get me there. Following my recent visit, I've added to my collection a lovely set of gold etched of vintage Georges Briard glasses and a tiered serving tray (see photos).
The shop's style is definitely mid-century modern featuring vintage pieces found at estate sales and what not. They also toss in a few modern items inspired by that decade or so of design. Plus, awesome candles, gin making sets, and cute printed tea towels and artsy straws.
