About George Champion
George Champion was a private dealer of midcentury modern furniture when he had his first public design showcase in 1996. The annual event developed a following among modern furniture collectors and design enthusiasts in Connecticut, New York, and beyond.

In 2004, the gallery moved to a new space on Woodbury's "Antiques Row" and renamed the Modern Shop. After extensive renovations, the neighboring showhouse was unveiled during Summer 2012, expanding George Champion Modern Shop’s inventory and offerings. The shop and showhouse feature modern design from the 1920s to the present.
