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…
