the modernist

Welcome to my neck of the woods :) Today I decided to feature some black and white photos I took at the Modernist, a second hand furniture store located in 4th avenue in Parkhurst (the area where I live in Johannesburg). The owners (former fashion designer and retro wood specialist Gavin Thomas and former advertising executive Anikesh Ramani) collect and restore mid-century pieces (which I personally love).

I found the old wooden rolling pin and stamps especially awesome

beautifully restored heat lamps

I will admit, one of the reasons I usually end up browsing in the Modernist is because I’ll be sitting across the road at The Leopard, an eatery that is truly something very special. Their food screams of freshness and seasonality and their coffee is pretty good as well, which is very important for me ;)
