Getting Your Retro On at 1st Class Finds

This week's featured Hot Spot is a local shop filled with mid-century finds just begging to be purchased and put into your apartment.  Furniture, lighting, wall decor, accessories... this retro-focused establishment sells it all.  

When you read our Mid-Century Style Spotlight post, you'll know we're a big fan of the warm wood tones, bold colors, clean lines, and curvaceous silhouettes that make up retro decor.  (And if you didn't read it... well, you should head over and read it after you finish this one!)  It's easy to mix mid-century flair into your contemporary decor for an eclectic look.  A long, low sofa here, a modular shelving unit there.  A sleek dresser here, a sunburst mirror or clock there.

If you're on the market for mid-century modern and live in the Cedar Rapids area, 1st Class Finds is your go-to shop.  Owner Dave Owens collects and sells top quality retro and mid-century modern furniture in his shop at 227 14th Ave. SE.

You don't have to--and shouldn't--go overboard integrating mid-century modern pieces into your current style.  Make a big vintage statement with a vinyl sofa or pair of crushed velvet chairs.  Swap out your boring contemporary entertainment center for a handsome console fit for the set of Mad Men.  Or add touches of retro throughout your apartment with accessories like vintage clock radios, sunburst mirrors, and teak candlesticks.

Getting a great vintage piece at a great price from 1st Class Finds will set your apartment apart from the rest. Check them out on Facebook to keep up-to-date on new inventory and sales.
