We offer distinctively curated Mid-Century Modern furniture, lighting, art and décor by the finest artists and designers of the period.

The story of 20th Century Interiors' arrival in Denver is really a tale of two cities – or maybe three.  Our sister store in Portland, Oregon is helmed by Benson Scott, who has been an important mentor to us. Benson was a pioneer and major player in the Mid-Century collecting and reselling scene in San Francisco for 25 years before moving to Portland in the fall of 2016 and directly imports authentic vintage originals from Denmark several times a year.  As a result, our resources and connections reach far beyond Denver to the West Coast and Europe, and we’re here to put them to work for you.

20th Century Interiors | Denver founder J Kendel Johnson grew up in the 60s and 70s in a family retail furniture business in southwest Oklahoma, and he loved going to furniture market in Dallas with this father to see the innovative and evolving designs of the period.  Along the way, he also became fascinated with his aunt and uncle’s antique furniture business.  Going picking with them – which they always called “scrounging” – felt like high adventure.  Establishing his own showroom featuring his most recently discovered works by the most-revered and admired designers of the period was a natural next step in his life-long love of Mid-Century Modern design.



Scandinavian Modern, Brutalist, Bauhaus, Post-War, Mid-Century Modern. We specialize in acquiring first-quality furniture, lighting and décor by the 20th Century’s most influential and revered American and European master designers and craftsmen.

Our important, signature pieces have stood the test of time, owing to their innovative design and impressive,  functional comfortability.

source materials and more exacting
