Modern Living Supplies

About Us / Testimonials

  • I own a loft in the Two Bridges area of the Lower East Side. The building and shell elements of my apartment were developed with architectural elegance and precision, so any additional construction and furnishings needed to enhance and frame how the apartment’s nearly 30 windows capture the amazing NYC skyline. This was the task Mark and Modern Living Supplies were given. The work they provided was of the highest quality in both workmanship and artistry. Modern Living Supplies ‘finished’ the design of my loft while making it more livable and high-functioning. I highly recommend them.

  • I commissioned Modern Living Supplies to design and build a metal-frame bed with a solid walnut headboard. As a designer, I can be a pain about details. Mark came up with a beautiful solution for attaching the headboard to the frame that exposed the bed’s structure. His attention to the little things really brought something very special to an understated piece.

  • As a customer, I love working with Mark. He’s refinished vintage chairs and created beautiful cabinet pieces and custom sofas for us. All the work has been perfectly executed and exactly what we wanted. His workmanship and taste are great and he’s very responsive to his clients’ needs. He’s so good at what he does and he’s so interested in doing it well.

  • Working with Mark was a true pleasure…one-stop shopping in the best sense. He’s a great resource—timely and efficient, with a keen eye and a storehouse of materials. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

  • I love visiting Mark’s beautiful showroom and always learn a lot when I do. I’ve bought several wonderful pieces from Modern Living Supplies and value his great taste, judgment and personal attention.

  • If you want something done right, you’ll love working with Mark and Modern Living Supplies. After spending a year searching for the right piece, I was lucky enough to find MLS. They helped me create the important piece of furniture that I wanted. They are artists and craftspeople. You get what you pay for—and it’s worth it.

  • Mark helped us create a very chic and comfortable custom sofa, and I was pleased to discover that his level of customer service was on par with workrooms that operate at a much higher price point.

  • My husband and I have worked with Mark Naylon and Modern Living Supplies for quite some time. Throughout the years we’ve purchased both mid-century pieces from him as well as custom made works from his own line. He recently designed the entire interior of our daughter’s room with a built-in bamboo bed and shelving, and added a soffited ceiling. Mark has a truly amazing eye.  Whether it’s choosing and refinishing mid-century pieces or designing newly custom made works, they’re always made of the highest quality materials and have a gorgeous sense of detail coupled with beautiful craftsmanship.

  • I have worked with Mark and Modern Living Supplies for some time now. I have bought pieces from him and we have traded pieces. Most impressive to me is the work that Mark did on designing and building a number of items in my house. Most notably is an ebony cerused-oak dining table and 8 chairs with white parchment leather. These are stunning works of art that are simple, but make a very strong statement.

  • I first discovered Modern Living Supplies on 1stDibs.com a few years ago and liked what I saw. One day I ventured downtown to Mark’s shop; it was a long way but well worth the trip. His impeccable taste and amazing prices had me calling a delivery service within minutes. A few weeks later he was fabricating made-to-order Karl Springer dining chairs that went perfectly with my Robsjohn-Gibbings table. He came to my home to discuss an area where I was stuck, which is now my favorite place to relax. Mark suffers from acute awareness, so he pointed out mistakes I never saw and fixed them…Mark can do anything, design anything and find anything. And he never says no.
