Who we are
Lee Alex, owned by husband and wife team, Theo and Heather Byron, has been in business since 2006. Over the years we’ve moved our location steadily up Broadway, until finding our perfect fit in the Baker neighborhood. The eclectic culture of the area was ideal for our eclectic style and selection. Our new, larger space allowed the introduction of several new product lines, including candles, jewelry and handbags, so you can always find a treasure here. We take pride in offering the great value, accessible furniture, and personal attention the neighborhood demands. And of course, the amazing designs you crave. Our goal is to keep selection up, prices down, and customers happy!
Theo has long been the face of Lee Alex, since it was a funky vintage shop way down Broadway. A consummate entrepreneur, Theo owned several different companies before finding his niche with antiques and vintage. His work designing and manufacturing furniture means he knows how a piece is made, its unique features and functions, and what to look for when ensuring a piece is good quality and ready for your home. He has a keen, well-trained eye for top designers, iconic mid-century pieces, and solid craftsmanship. As the main buyer for the store, Theo works to keep prices low, by finding the best deals every time. He takes pride in offering the superior blend of form and function that mid-century design affords, and would love to tell you all he can about any piece on the floor.
Heather is the quintessential left-brain/right-brain balance, with a finance and a photography degree to her name. Her work with the business side of Lee Alex was pivotal in expanding the company, and her tireless efforts on the backend keep the store running. On the creative end, Heather has brought in her own sense of style with the cool new product lines. Her influence on the vintage selection can be seen with the quirky, fun décor and furniture items. Heather enjoys helping people new to mid-century design see how truly great these pieces are. She is less concerned with dates and designers, and more inspired by how the item looks or makes you feel. Heather loves to share her instinctual design sense with anyone seeking to bring vintage into their modern décor.
