Best High-End Resale Shop (2004)
Mid-Century Pavilion At a time when most hip furniture is inspired by the modernism of the '50s and '60s or by the clean lines of old-school Danish designers, why not head to Mid-Century Pavilion for the originals? Instead of dropping $2,000 for a Sam Cocker chair out of the pages of Wallpaper, you could spend $495 for an Eiffel Tower Eames chair, the design junkie's original. Located in one of the last-standing quaint brick storefronts on Washington Avenue, the Pavilion offers vintage furniture from famous designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton, as well as assorted treasures like an antique Westinghouse fan and an immaculate, pale yellow-and-chrome Chambers stove. And not everything is mega-expensive. For example, a coffee-table cigarette lighter and a zany atomic-ball fixture are both under 25 bucks.
