20th Century Cincinnati Show 2010

Whether you're looking to add that signature modern piece to your furniture collection or just like drooling over a plethora of modernism, Cincinnati's annual Mid Century Modern furniture is a must for anyone within a 300 mile radius. From jewelery to pottery to fashion to furniture and modern houses, 30's Deco to Pop, even if you're not shopping, the show serves as a great exhibit of many regional MCM dealers and their collections. $7 gets you in the door for both days and this years special exhibit is Higgins glass. New this year is also a guide to vintage modern design to what to expect at the show.
We have been going to this show since it was held at Union Terminal 'back in the day' as we say. There is no shortage of vintage, quality furniture at the show. Typically we have to establish an allowance before walking in the door. The following is some of our previous scores from the show:

2 Eames Aluminum Group chairs, our first 20th Century Cincinnati purchase.

White Eames Fiberglass Armshell, originally on a swivel base, but improvised with Modernica rocker.

4 Bertoia Side Chairs in brown with green seat pads.

1 Butterscotch Eames Fiberglass Side Shell, don't mind the construction in the background

2 Salmon colored low bullet planters, desperately waiting to go back outside this spring.

4 Russel Woodard Sculptura high back wire mesh chairs.


  1. Added a new poll surveying your plans to go to the show.

  2. I would LOVE to go. Sadly, I'd blow my allowance just getting there. I do hope you'll be posting some photos.
