Stamford Modern celebrates simplicity and the essence of contemporary design. Since 2011, we have helped interior designers, decorators, collectors, and design enthusiasts furnish beautiful spaces with exceptional furniture.
Carlos and Mariela Solano established Stamford Modern in 2011 to elevate rare vintage designs with modern finishes. Carlos previously spent a decade working in the furniture industry – first for a high-end retailer in NYC and then for an antiques dealer. Mariela saw potential in merging the two industries and created the Stamford Modern concept. Today, Mariela uses her master’s degree in accounting to manage all of the financials. Carlos is our resident furniture designer and visionary. He leads the entire process of sourcing, purchasing, and restoring every item in our showroom

“A DESIGNED INTERIOR IS YOUR TRUE SELF EMBODIED IN A ROOM” - ERICK SOLANO
Erick joined the company in 2016 bringing his love and knowledge for artistry and interiors first cultivated with furniture design. Starting as a sales representative he has escalated his way up to Principal Designer and Gallery Manager offering our customers the best service and guidance to exceed expectations.
"My creative process begins by listening to my client’s needs, establishing a relationship where they can express themselves giving me the opportunity to catch their character and essence making homes a unique representation of who they really are.
I’m always on the lookout for something extremely different, innovative, and inspiring to complement each space such as modern and mid-century furnishings, using craftsman whose work is true to their art forms and choosing products that are honestly produced.
The best compliment and greatest satisfaction comes from contemplating how design makes lives more beautiful."
