Who We Are

tiffany_and_mikeWe’re Mike and Tiffany, collectors and lovers of all things mid-century modern design, re-claimed / re-purposed and vintage. Together we mix the old and new, the high and low, the fun and the serious.

We love nothing more than to hit the open road with our shop dog Joplin and search for great finds for the home. Maybe it’s a vintage camera as a decorative piece for your bookshelf, a mid-century modern credenza or nightstand or a set of 1950’s ping pong paddles to hang on your wall.

We opened Modern Cooperative in Pilsen not only because we live here, but because community means a great deal to us. We feature over 75 local artists who design and create using re-purposed materials as well as a hand-picked selection of Mid-Century Modern furniture and home accessories.

Shop Dog


Come by and say hello to Joplin, Modern Cooperative’s famous shop dog! Joplin loves to sit in laps when he’s not napping in his vintage suitcase dog bed. He has a new brother, Queso, who isn’t quite ready for the store, but should be soon.
