The River Oaks furniture store known for its real-deal midcentury modern pieces is moving to a new location this summer. But first, there's a sale: Lynn Goode Vintage is offering deep discounts through the rest of March and all of April in order to clear its inventory and make room for all new merchandise in its next home.
The moving sale begins today, March 23, and runs through April 30 in the 3637 West Alabama showroom Goode's store has occupied since 2014. Goode, a native Houstonian who got her start here as a gallerist, founded her furniture and decorative arts company two years before that in 2012 after previous roles as a theatre and bookstore owner in Marfa. Citing an "untapped midcentury modern market," Goode turned her Montrose gallery—and later, the River Oaks store—into a mecca for high-style furnishings by the masters of the style, like Frank Lloyd Wright, Herman Miller, Adrian Pearsall, Milo Baughman, T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Charlotte Perriand, and Mies van der Rohe. The shop was even featured on HGTV's House Hunters last month.
Goode herself curates the pieces, which she selects for their "history and stories," she says. Her collection is the real deal, featuring pieces like a $3,800 "pair of extremely large nightstands raised on hairpin legs" with original teak-finished doors and chrome geometric pulls (maker unknown), a $3,600 Pierre Cardin-signed lucite lamp duo with custom shades, or an $11,000 Vladimir Kagan cloud sofa reupholstered in charcoal mohair velvet.
All that and more is on sale, so act fast—this isn't West Elm, after all. Goode is set to reveal more information about her new venture and space next month.
