“Vintage furniture dealers come out in force at this excellent mid-century fair, featuring classics of British, American and Scandinavian twentieth-century design from Eames to Ercol. A very stylish showcase of high quality, highly covetable furniture and homewares that you can buy direct from the dealers.” Time Out
We are very excited to be heading back to our lovely Goldfinger location in Hackney for our annual show of Midcentury wonderment. Behind Hoxton station, located between the fabulous Geffrye Museum, housing rooms through the ages for the interiors lover, and Columbia’s famous flower market, Midcentury East is a must for anyone after the best in original mid-century design.
This unpretentious show attracts everyone from Hackney parents, armed with bats and balls to keep kids occupied on the ping pong tables outside, to well heeled collectors, interior designers and fashionistas who all come to swoop on midcentury pieces to spruce up their eclectic homes or projects while basking in the shards of light and beton brut of Goldfinger’s only secondary school.
Love Eames, Jacobsen, Bertoia, Nelson, Wegner, Charley Harper and the Days? You will definitely get your fill from Europe’s best mid-century dealers in furniture, ceramics, glass, wallpaper, vintage fabrics, industrial, clocks and collectable posters including an original Cool Hand Luke poster next to three James Bond posters as well as one from Hitchcock’s Psycho.
Check out Modern Shows popular sourcing directory, The Modern Marketplace, to get a taste of what is to come and the kind of pieces Goldfinger himself would have had at his house, now owned by the National Trust on Willow Rd in Hampstead.
