Nailing that place between novel and polished; quirky and classic, Forage Modern Workshop is an incubator for modern home design in the Twin Cities. Owners Michael Smith and James Brown are contractors who have had a hand in creating and restoring many residential and commercial properties. Along the way, they’ve become fans of locally produced furniture lines such as Squared Furniture, Loll, and Eastvold. Haven’t heard of them? Just wait. Go hungry: Forage shares space with Parka, the buzzed-about new restaurant from the men behind Victory 44, Rustica Bakery, and Dogwood Coffee.
