Directors: Husband-wife team Nick and Achlee Wise
Stars: Midcentury-modern furniture, ’70s brass accents, old-school art, vintage clothing and accessories.
Cast: George Nelson, Eliel Saarinen, Milo Baughman
Story Line: Art junkie bingeing on antiques at a mall kiosk gets clean at a former AT&T service station.
Full summary: Vintage collector Achlee Wise opens her dream store with the help of her husband, transforming the crusty building’s layers (peach paint, chipped tiles, cubicles) into a showcase of credenzas, highboys, tulip tables, funky chairs, and unusual art — from oil portraits to modern abstract doodles.
Famous quotes: “My sweet spot is anything ’70s, disco, swank.”
“I’ve never met a piece of brass or Asian art I didn’t like.”
Spoiler alert: A well-heeled vintage clothing and accessories section (cue the Carlos Falchi clutches and chunky costume necklaces) launches in March.
