It is with mixed emotions that we announce the closure of our beautiful Smith St showroom, marking the end of 13 memorable years of trading.

But, in our 13th year of trading, various pressures have culminated to make ongoing trading untenable. From the continued fallout of covid, to changes in the market, and wanting to go in new directions, we have made the very difficult decision to wrap up Modern Times as we know it.

Since opening our doors in 2011, we’ve been known for our unique curation of European vintage furniture alongside contemporary Australian art and design. We’ve been privileged to work with an incredible array of emerging artist and designers, as well as a loyal clientele who we have evolved alongside of.

Thank you to our beautiful clients for all your amazing support over the years. It's been a pleasure to serve you, and we hope that each of your art and design pieces from Modern Times are used and admired for many more years to come.

We would also like to express our deep appreciation to all our suppliers, collaborators and team members from over the years. Modern Times has always been a collaborative expression of everyone involved and we are proud of what we’ve achieved – sharing exciting vintage design, hosting numerous successful exhibitions, and creating a business that was as unique as the products themselves.

So au revoir for now and look out for new ventures, on the horizon in 2024. Watch this space.

Our website is still live for online purchases which can be collected by appointment. Lots of bargains.

Anyone who has any questions regarding the closure of the business please reach out to
