American Art Deco Furniture and Lighting


Welcome to MODERNISM GALLERY, America's first and premier online gallery specializing in authentic period French and American art deco furniture, lighting and accessories and 20th Century Design

We have been selling French and American Art Deco since 1979 and have had our website since 1995. Ric Emmett (1941 - 2015) was the founder and his legacy continues.

Modernism Gallery sells exclusively through the internet and has literally thousands of satisfied customers.

On our web site you find authentic, rare and unusual items, either in impeccable original condition or lovingly restored. In either case, ready for installation at your client’s location. All items are guaranteed authentic and as described! Modernism Gallery is not a retail venue. All items are vetted for authenticity.

We offer to the trade original furniture and accessories by American designers such as Paul Frankl, Donald Deskey, Gilbert Rohde, Wolfgang Hoffmann, Kem Weber and George Nakashima as well as French designers as diverse as Jules Leleu, Jacques Adnet, Paul Follot, Maurice Dufrene and Dominique.

We carry no reproductions.

Everything we sell can be shipped. Small items are professionally double boxed & shipped insured. For large furniture pieces we employ the services of a shipping broker who, depending on your needs, will arrange crating or blanket wrapping & insured shipping. It's easy!

If you visit South Florida and wish to see our showroom filled with art deco treasures, please call us at (305) 442-8743 or (305) 798-0308 and we will make an appointment to meet with you.

We will be happy to answer any of your questions.
