The Modern Historic: A Vintage Getaway Collection

We New Yorkers are looking for an escape. Somewhere exotic, enchanting, and definitely somewhere warm. So we’re booking a trip with husband and wife team Kristen Lindholm and Nicholas Dewey’s The Modern Historic. A frequent Fab favorite on Vintage Mondays, the vintage purveyor of fashion and furnishings represents the best and boldest designs from the 1940s through 1960s. Tonight’s tropically tempting collection has been curated with resort vacations in mind, and being that they’re headquartered in Palm Beach, Florida, they know a thing or two about fun in the sun.

What’s the history of The Modern Historic? 

We have always been collecting items from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Nick has collected records and vintage clothing since he was a teenager. We got together when we were both 20 years old and have been collecting ever since.
