ABOUT


 

CF MODERN was founded in 2011 by Irwin Feld and Steve Cassler, both prominent dealers of Mid- Century Modern furniture for over a decade.  Our vision is to provide the design community with items made to specification under constant supervision to ensure accuracy and quality.  We maintain a strong commitment to design and produce their products locally using the finest craftspeople available in the New York area.  CF Modern prides itself on providing an exceptional level of service to architects and designers across the globe. 

 

At CF Modern intent attention to detail is the norm, from the materials used in construction through to the finishing process.   Using the most advanced technology available they stay true to their exceptional aesthetic while ensuring precise delivery of your custom vision. “We learned that one inch in a design scheme can make all the difference” quotes Irwin Feld of their decision to enter the custom arena after a vintage credenza coveted by a client was an inch too tall to fit in her space.

The CF MODERN collection has quickly grown from a signature stiletto bench to now include occasional seating, both small and large case goods, and recently a collection of mirrors.   Each item is open to the designer’s interpretations and therefore can fill the specific needs for their projects.  All seating options are available COM or COL; wood finishes are painstakingly matched to the desired color and sheen, or lacquered to any color available thus giving the designer the edge in putting their unique stamp on our designs.  Hardware can be customized as well and finishes can be chosen from polished to satin to patina and more.  There is nothing stock or standard at CF Modern!

Our lead time is shorter than most custom furniture makers which adds flexibility and more immediate gratification for the homeowners.  Some projects can be turned out in a matter of a few weeks with the maximum being no longer than ten weeks from start to delivery.

The ever expanding collection is artfully displayed in Suite 510 at The New York Design Center at 200 Lexington Avenue in New York.  There, newly crafted pieces are paired seamlessly with exclusive vintage items including chandeliers, art and decorative objects making it a unique and unequaled destination for the design community.

Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly and can assist in design decisions, mechanical shop drawings and even site visits if necessary.  We work with the top design professionals in the United States and abroad, shipping custom items nationwide and across the continents.  We can facilitate in shipping and delivery and in special cases, installation.  

Feel free to contact us with your questions or pop in for a visit Monday-Friday.  We look forward to working with all of you!
