About Modern Cooperative

Modern Cooperative is located in downtown Hyde Park on 53rd Street. ModCo hand picks and fully restores vintage midcentury modern home furnishings from the 60’s and 70’s, in addition to a line of contemporary furniture from Gus Modern. We also showcase more than 75 local artists and designers who craft letterpress greeting cards, jewelry, pillows, bags, artwork and more – as well as reclaimed modern furniture and home decor.

Faces of 53rd Street

It’s one thing for a store owner to open a location in a new Chicago neighborhood, but it’s quite another to become so charmed with the area that you actually move there yourself. For Tiffany Paige and Mike Biersma, co-owners of the award-winning boutique Modern Cooperative, “where vintage modern meets handmade,” that’s exactly the seductive pull Hyde Park had on them, the community they’re now proud to call home.

Meet The Owners

tiffany_and_mikeWe’re Mike and Tiffany, collectors and lovers of all things mid-century modern design, reclaimed / repurposed 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 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 repurposed materials as well as a hand-picked selection of Mid-Century Modern furniture and home accessories.
