Midcentury Modern Spring Show
Jane Oliver Cushions, Midcentury Modern Spring Show
This revered vintage furniture show is back with its carefully selected collection of mid-20th century furniture, home wares and ornamental décor. Boasting a cult-following, organisers Lucy Ryder Richardson and Petra Curtis travel everywhere from Stockholm to Palm Springs, selecting the best traders to showcase their vintage wares. Discerning palettes can kit out their homes with a selection of top Scandinavian, American Modernist and European Bauhaus designs from exhibitors such as Elliot and Tate, Vera Da Silva and Scandinavian by Design. Key pieces include original Cherner chairs, and some tribal African inspired cushions from Jane Oliver.

Everybody's been telling me about this show. I missed it last year but surely won't this year... See you all there !!

Lucy Ryder Richardson

‘This show could cause design lovers a cardiac arrest.’ Grand Designs '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 Love Scandinavian and American Modernism, European Bauhaus, British, French and German Industrial? Looking for a huge range of prices and styles from the best in 20C design classics and modern collectables? Find it here at the celebrated show backed by Elle Decoration that has been lauded as a top shopping experience by Time Out, Monocle, Rough Guide to Vintage London, Grand Designs and the London Design Guide. Find everything for the eclectic home at this much-loved one day show from an original Cherner chair to a contemporary piece from a hot young British designer. Midcentury Modern and The Midcentury Show have a cult following of midcentury aficianados and design lovers from all over Europe who gather one Sunday a few times a year at Lords Cricket Ground and Dulwich College to feed off their mutual love for design at what has been described as an inspiring museum-style pop up shop.
