Find rare fabrics, like the one above from WEMM, highly collectable furniture from the design greats including early Cherner chairs and a Pierre Jeanerret desk and chairs from the office of the principal at the University in Le Corbusier’s concrete modernist masterpiece Chandigarh in India , in fact everything for the home for mid-century and modern lovers at the Midcentury Modern show on Sunday 23 November. Here are some highlights that will be at the show Orla Kiely calls “Design Heaven” and the lovely things other people say.
“I always spot great pieces at Midcentury Modern ® for my interiors – but I’ve learnt the hard way not to walk away and think about them. Each time I do that, I come back and find someone else has snapped it up – you’ve got to get in early and move quickly”
Lucy Marston, Lucy Marston Architects, winner of Grand Designs Home of the Year 2013
“It’s a brilliant show. My boyfriend and I have been coming here since 2008. We bought our grey sofa, 2 vases, an Eames chair. Midcentury Modern was part of the reason we moved to Crystal Palace.” Louise Wilkinson, designer
‘Midcentury Modern is a dangerous show. All the must-see vintage furniture, lighting and accessories dealers in one place makes for serious temptation. Lucy and Petra organise the shows with their idiosyncratic verve and energy and in atmospheric locations so the events feel like an occasion / day out and not just a shopping experience.’ Jenny Dalton. Freelance. How To Spend It. Financial Times.
‘Held in the beautiful and very appropriate Christison building designed by Wates in the Sixties, this show is stuffed with all the recognisable classics of Scandinavian, American and British heroes of 20C design. It’s like visiting a design museum where you can sit on the classics, talk to knowledgable people and then take the exhibits home with you. I enjoy every show immensely and would recommend this show to any lover of design.’ Matthew Hilton
