Impeccable Design, Real People

Our Story

Founded in 2018 by a husband and wife design duo.

After a decade making custom tables, we became aware of the large and growing need for a better way to do furniture.
Our friends and patrons were tired of the generic, low-quality, big-box store options but couldn’t afford marked-up designer pieces. We dreamt up something different: a direct-to-you furniture brand, obsessed with quality, design and functionality, at a price real people can afford. And so Denver Modern was born.

Inspired by our hometown, our furniture is inviting and comfortable, evoking a sense of possibility and channeling the spirit of the west.

“Our design process starts with a definition of overall shape and space, then moves into identifying key materials and how they work with one another. It's a concerted effort, that we intend, once finished, to have a timeless and comfortable feel.”

- Lindsey Price Criswell, Owner

By the best, for the best.

We believe if you find the best people, you can make the best furniture. We partner with artisans and craftsmen we know by name, whose expert techniques have been passed down for generations. 

Modern, minus the middle man.

By going straight to the source for our materials and furniture, we’re able to offer world class, quality pieces at a fraction of the price.

The right stuff.

We searched the globe for the highest-quality, most comfortable and durable materials, made to match your lifestyle. Our designs feature hardwoods, concrete, steel, leather and luxury linens.
