Haggerston school in east London was the venue for this weekend’s fix of modernist furniture and interior design porn at the Mid-Century Modern Show, bringing together 50 top dealers in furniture, homewares and accessories. This was the second time the fair was held in Ernö Goldfinger’s modernist secondary school, which provides an ideal backdrop to the temptations on display. Incidentally, you can read my article about my trip to Goldfinger’s Balfon Tower here
This is the school’s assembly hall with its unusual brickwork along one wall
What – or who – wouldn’t look good in front of this wall?
Love these Italian illuminated mirrors at Mar-Den. Possibly more late- than mid-century, but they look great.
On the stage, Modern Warehouse had some lovely pieces
Béton Brut is a new exhibitor shortly to open a shop/gallery in Hackney
A row of colourful Mac lamps from Lovely & co
Suitably retro refreshments from this colourful caravan
Cute desk and a red typewriter with some nice prints from Elephant & Monkey
Love this whimsical astrological bull
Great original mid-century textiles from World’s End Midcentury Modern
Furry creatures welcome at the show
These chairs from Dagmar were probably my favourites at the show
Classic soviet graphic design looks great against the building’s textures
I liked this arrangement. It reminded me of a row of chairs outside the Headmaster’s office.
The next Mid-Century Modern Show is at Dulwich College on 23rd November. See you there!
