Despite its name, Modest Designs is anything but: Display pieces from the collection of mid-century-modern finds can be decidedly over the top. Look for superb offerings such as Arne Bang ceramics, a Tony Duquette cocktail table, a Dorothy Draper chair, or a rare Art Deco dresser from Gilbert Rohde.
