About Us



Hi! We're Ryan and Nicole Hobbs.

We're excited you found us and look forward to playing a part in your Mid-Century Modern journey.

We are Hobbs Modern. Hobbs Modern is the premier Mid-Century Modern furniture dealer in San Diego. We specialize in finding rare and one-of-a -kind pieces to the not so rare but still beautiful vintage modern furniture and decor. We work hard to curate a combination of Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian Modern and Brazilian Modern with a relentless pursuit of restoration perfection and historical accuracy. We are passionate about breathing new life into pieces. We ship nationwide and deliver locally. 

We only buy and restore what we love and we only sell what we would put in our own home. That means you will find that our pieces are in excellent vintage condition.

Come and visit our workshop in North Pacific Beach, San Diego. We are open by appointment. Call Nicole or text her on (619) 300-3551.

If you don’t see something you love, drop us a line as we keep a wish list of pieces our customers are looking for. We are always hunting for the perfect Modern decor and design to finish your interior.

NICOLE HOBBS - Nicole began sourcing Mid-Century Modern as a way to stay home with our son, Reef. I would carry him on my back as I hunted for treasures. The more she learned, the more in love I fell with the period.

RYAN HOBBS - Ryan has a passion for iconic design and an especially soft spot for seating. He loves tinkering with their mechanisms and stripping them down to the bolts and straps. He believes a chair should look as good as it feels. He has focussed his attention on the restoration of  Eames lounge chairs.

LITTLE HOBBS - Reef is our resident color consultant, instagram assistant and muscle. You will see him driving a hard bargain, but you can always get him down to $1.

 If you have pieces you would like to sell or consign we would love to talk.
