Area Modern Home and Lighting is a showroom in downtown Greensboro on Elm Street. Since 2000, they have been showing and producing furniture locally. Owner and designer Mark Hewett trained in the United Kingdom and has worked on several continents. His store sits directly across the street from the former Fordham's Pharmacy and just north of Coe's Grocery. Area Modern showcases the best of 21st century Greensboro, Fordham's dates to 1898 and closed about the time Area Modern opened. Coe's is about a century old and, as best we can tell, is still going strong. Thankfully, Downtown Greensboro is an interesting mixture of businesses. Through GDP, we're learning so much about our city. We'll have to visit Area Modern when we look for a new couch this spring!
We're looking at our city in a whole new way now that we've been participating in weekend reflections.
