UPDATE: Area Modern Home celebrating in Durham


By Susan Herst


With a lively cocktail reception last Thursday night, Area Modern Home of Greensboro celebrated the launch of their new store in Durham.  Focused on creating timeless classics, Area carries affordable, modern home furnishings and accessories.

Working closely with local manufacturers to ensure quality and appeal, Area’s furniture is produced locally (High Point) and can be shipped within two weeks of order in a variety of fabrics.  Area carries furniture from manufacturers such as Calligaris and Pablo Lighting, as well as their own in-house designs.  

Store owner, Mark Hewett, established his first store in 2000 in Greensboro.  Area quickly has become a leading source for modern and lifestyle furniture with many Triangle residents traveling to Greensboro for their modern furniture needs. 

Their new store in Durham is a Dot Spot, a cohesive representation of Blu Dot pieces and is centrally located downtown at 320 E. Chapel Hill St, (www.areamod.com) right across from the downtown Post Office and right below Urban Durham Realty’s two residential loft listings!  Buy a loft and furnish it from the store right below, how easy is that!

Here are some photos from Thursday’s festivities...
