The sleek teak coffee tables and low-slung couches at Danish Modern L.A. were once crammed into a 400-square-foot Silver Lake storefront on Sunset Boulvard near Micheltorena Street. But, last week, the family-owned vintage furniture store reopened about two blocks east in a vast 4,000-square-foot space once occupied by an upholstery shop. Here, under a soaring ceiling and a floor painted jet-black, there is plenty of room to admire the classic mid century furniture, including a $1,295 Svend Skipper “Papa Bear“-style wingback chair or a $2,400 Kofod Larsen sofa. “People can be more comfortable here and stay a while,” said Jessy Tzarax. Tzarax said he prodded the family to shift away from older antiques and embrace the future-forward style of the 1950s and 1960s. The family once operated a vintage and antique store in Orange County before moving about two years ago to Silver Lake, where Danish Modern furniture seems a perfect match for the many mid-century homes that fill the hillsides.
