at the fair – midcentury show east.

Midcentury Show East is a mid-century fair, featuring vintage furniture dealers and classics of British, American and Scandinavian twentieth-century design. I wrote about the midcentury show in St John’s Wood earlier this year, here.

This past Sunday was the east London event, held in Haggerston School, a building designed by major Modernist proponent, architect Erno Goldfinger in the mid 1960s, probably best known for his Brutalist-style Trellick Tower. Fifty dealers were represented, the hall and gym holding the majority with the rest meandering through corridors and secondary spaces. Stalwarts like Lovely & Co, Elliot and Tate, Saunders Fine Art, Vintage Unit, and new (to me, at least): Osi Modern (who style so beautifully), Pink Flamingos who specialise in Eames, and Bleu.




Sadly I’m not in the market for furniture until our house-hunting is over, and we have space with which to furnish… sigh. Maybe by the time the Dulwich fair comes around in December…

    When you come to the Dulwich Fair, come and see my stand in Space 4 upstairs in the Contemporary Room called Feather Clocks. You might find something you like for your new house. Have a look at my website which is work in progress as more images will be uploaded very soon:
    Good luck with the house-hunting!

    I was disappointed that I couldn’t go to this so I’m really happy that you wrote a post on it. It looked fab. Thank you. Good luck with your house hunting, exciting times 🙂 xD
