Not only are the chairs in impeccable condition, but working with Robina was a dream. Due to our location, she worked to have the chairs shipped from (literally) coast to coast. She found us the best shipping price and was expedient with her updates and communication. We love the chairs and would absolutely recommend shopping from Robina and Kangaroo Modern!
Collect vintage modern design for your home.
Design history has always been an interest of mine and searching for and revitalizing vintage pieces brings me joy so I brought the two together in a shop named for my Australian roots.
There are no rules when decorating with vintage pieces. Design writer Diana Budds said “with the consummate vintage find… you’re a step closer to a home that’s curated, not merely consumed”.
Whether it’s an original Saarinen dining chair reupholstered with a bright Knoll fabric, pillows newly made from a vintage Don Wight textile or an Eero Aarnio-style wicker chair updated with a comfortable cushion (see them in the above photos) there are no rules when you decorate with vintage pieces and creativity can be endless.
Growing up in the 60s and 70s I lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Design Research, the revolutionary home furnishings store that helped introduce Scandinavian design to the United States. Memories of that store and its influence on the design world are always an inspiration.
As recent empty nester I've started running my shop full time. Let me know if you have a particular something in mind for your home and I’ll be glad to make suggestions or be on the look out for it.
I enjoy being part of the Etsy community, interacting with customers and reading about members and their stories. Thanks for visiting!

FURNITURE ITEMS under 100 lbs. such as chairs and small tables can be shipped for a reasonable price via Greyhound Package Express. If you ship this way you will need to pick-up the item at your nearest bus station. If you would like to find the bus station closest to you please visit www.shipgreyhound.com and click on “find location”. Items usually arrive within 2-14 days depending on destination. I will need your best contact phone number before I ship. Greyhound will notify you via phone when the package arrives. They require pick-up within 3 days of notification. After that they charge a storage fee.
LARGER FURNITURE ITEMS such as sofas and sets of chairs can be shipped via uShip. With uShip I submit a request for a quote based on size of the piece and your location. I will receive bids from various shippers. I will let you know how much they are (generally they are competitive i.e. all within a close range) and estimated time of delivery and then you decide which one best fits your needs. Delivery times can vary widely depending on weather and shippers’ schedules. Generally the pricing is reasonable. White Glove and Blanket Wrap are available. White Glove tis the highest level of service.
WHITE GLOVE LOCAL DELIVERY is available for NYC metropolitan area and region. This form of delivery is more expensive and uses a service that will professionally wrap and bring the items into your home. Please send me your address and delivery details (such as number of stairs or freight elevator access) and I will request a quote from a reliable local shipper and/or uShip. (See details about uShip below).
