Imagine this: a modern cooperative that features an assortment of curated, fine vintage furniture including tables, credenzas, shelving, seating and lighting and furniture. Mix in a smattering of pieces by local artists who use reclaimed and repurposed materials and you've got Modern Cooperative.

Chicago design professionals, Tiffany Paige and Mike Biersma, on May 11 are opening their new shop in the space previously occupied by Annie Novotny's Workshop on the corner of 18th and Newberry in the Pilsen Arts District. The opening party happens in conjunction with the 2nd Fridays Art Walk, starting at 5pm with food trucks and art-types Modified Originals and Emmy Brown.

Shop their home décor including colorful glassware, vintage wall art, a large collection of vintage cameras, classic barware sets from the 60s, Danish serving pieces and more. The new store will be a perfect fit for the growing 18th street Pilsen shopping district, already known as a destination for vintage clothing.
