RIO DE JANEIRO.

Mercado Moderno.

By Claire Sullivan

Pick up a prized piece of furniture by one of Brazil’s famous designers.

Mercado Moderno
Rua do Lavradio 130
Central
(0055) 21 2508-6083

When you arrive in Rio, jump in a taxi and head to the Lapa district, renowned for its old crumbling mansions that are now the home to the city’s popular Samba clubs. But you’re not there to Samba, you’re there to hunt down some highly sought after Brazilian mid-century modern furniture. Here you’ll find stores such as Mercado Moderno displaying the best collection of highly covetable pieces by Brazilian design Gods – Oscar Niemeyer, Sergio Rodrigues et al. Get in quick and buy what you can, these items are destined to be as sought after and as valuable as Eames and Le Corbusier in the years to come. You heard it here first. You’ll thank me for this tip in ten years!
