Love Scandinavian and American Modernism, European Bauhaus, British, French and German Industrial style? Looking for incredible 20th Century design classics and modern collectables? Then look no further than one of the design world's most celebrated shows that is happening this weekend and is backed by Elle Decoration. Dulwich's MIDCENTURY Modern has been lauded as a top shopping experience by Time Out, Monocle, 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. Source the latest furniture, wallpaper, ceramics, cushions and gifts upstairs after you have scoured the most collectable vintage furniture and home ephemera on the planet downstairs. Collectors on the hunt for even more mid-century furniture, ceramics, fabrics, art and glass can take a walk to the South Cloister, Lower Hall and North Cloister where 40 more dealers are situated. The MIDCENTURY Modern and The MIDCENTURY Show have a cult following of midcentury aficianados and design lovers from all over the British Isles 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.
"The brilliantly curated Modern Shows is a must-visit event for anyone after original mid-century design", says Charlotte Abrahams, freelance design writer for FT How to Spend it, Guardian, Observer, Elle
