Amy and Joel Malin, the team behind Modern Times

They're Baaaack!  Amy and Joel Malin, the industrious husband-and-wife team behind Modern Times are back with their third pop-up shop in Melbourne!  This time they've found a superb new location at 311 Smith st Fitzroy - for those in the know, it's the old 'Lure' hairdressing salon (you know with the pink interior and undulating 3-level floor!?).  This quirky retro-inspired space lends itself so perfectly to Modern Times' fantastic range of mid-century furniture, art and design - it really does feel a little like stepping into a Shag illustration!

As with previous pop-ups, alongside mid-century pieces imported direct from Denmark, Amy and Joel have filled their store with an eclectic collection of artwork, soft furnishings and accessories by an incredible line-up of local designers and artists.  Stand outs include artwork by Ellie Malin and Julie Paterson of Cloth, timber serving platters and accessories by Treehorn Design and ceramics by Ingrid Tufts, to name just a few!

Modern Times Pop Up #3 opened last Friday and will be trading for just six weeks - well worth a visit, get in quick!
