I am looking for some help in finding examples of design work done in the present (aka between today and 2000) and in the style of Atomic/Retro.

I am curious about this design style and want to know more.

Start here (http://www.retroradar.com/links.php?parent_id=7) - lots of good links to online furniture/homeware dealers, selling both new Atomic-era style designs and original pieces. Then have a look through the main links page (http://www.retroradar.com/links.php) for other stuff - clothing, books, hotels, diners etc.

Have a look at Herman Miller (http://www.hermanmiller.com/CDA/SSA/IP/0,1776,a8-c1,00.html) who were the original manufacturers of classic furniture and homewares designed by Charles and Ray Eames, Alvar Aalto, George Nelson and Isamu Noguchi among others. They are still selling the classic designs, including the iconic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman (http://www.hermanmiller.com/CDA/SSA/Product/0,1592,a8-c440-p47,00.html)
