Today we’d like to introduce you to Lynn Goode.
Lynn Goode Vintage began in 2013 as a pop-up venture in a Montrose Art Gallery Space.
Lynn sourced outstanding examples of the finest mid-century design, including works by Robsjohn-Gibbongs, George Nakashima, Vladimir Kagan, Carlo Nisan, Osvaldo Borsini and Ico Parisi.
The temporary venture proved to be successful and the business moved to a full-time location in the River Oaks area.
Lynn has flourished as an entrepreneur in the field of art, design, and literature.
She founded Lynn Goode Gallery, a fine art gallery in Houston which operated from 1988-1998.
After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1996, she moved to Marfa, Texas and opened the Marfa Book Company with the adjoining art space, as well as co-founded the community theater space.
In 2008, Lynn left Marfa and moved to Northampton, MA to attend graduate school at Smith College. She completed the program and earned a Masters in Social Work in 2010.
After practicing as a Social Worker, Lynn became involved in art and design again and created Lynn Goode Vintage.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Retail businesses are never smooth operations, as much of the path to a successful business and self employment is a combination of endurance and capital.
The struggles we encountered throughout the process is maintaining visibility and viability.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Lynn Goode Vintage – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Lynn Goode Vintage specializes in sourcing the globe for the finest 20th century design.
Our inventory is carefully selected and if needed, restored to the highest standards with luxury upholstery and care.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
As we have become internationally known, it’s become apparent that a large retail showroom is no longer necessary or productive.
The majority of our sales are transacted online, therefore we need less of a retail presence and more of a warehouse space.
