About this event

It’s back.

Mosey around 65 dealers on the ground floor of a stunning light and bright 60s architect designed glass brick and concrete building with dealers spilling into the arches beyond not to mention 25 of some of Britains best contemporary designers upstairs in this stunning interiors fair that celebrates the design greats. Shop til you drop at the show that brought the term Midcentury Modern to the UK from Palm Springs way before Mad Men appeared on our screens. The cream of the crop when it comes to vintage fairs, ‘Midmod' as its more lovingly known has a huge following with interior designers, architects and even celebrities like Olivia Colman (The Queen) and Andrew Garfield (Spiderman).

Run by Modern Shows® Petra Curtis and Lucy Ryder Richardson, the duo also mix midcentury and modern in the houses they stage for developers that sell with estate agents like The Modern House and Savills.

Lucy, who does a stint here and there as a dealer on BBC One's The Bidding Room, says, “Petra and I are so excited to be able to bring Midcentury Modern back to the wonderful Christison Hall at Dulwich College after two years and can't wait to chat with the dealers, designers and visitors while we do some serious shopping for the houses we stage. We have missed the amazing buzz you get at our Midcentury Modern® shows. Online buying is never the same. ”

Testimonials:

Missed out last time? Never fear! Midcentury Modern has returned to spread the interior décor joy it has in droves with a Dulwich College takeover spanning 85 top furniture dealers. It’s less rough, more diamonds - Londonist

Vintage furniture dealers and top modern designers come out in force for this excellent mid-century fair, featuring classics of British, American and Scandinavian 20th-century design from Eames to Ercol. It's a very stylish showcase of high-quality, highly covetable furniture, lighting, art and homeware that you can buy direct from the 85 stands of vintage dealers and modern designers. Time out

“Modern Shows enthusiasm and commitment is inspiring” barbarachandler.co.uk Interiors Editor Evening Standard

 

‘This show could cause design lovers a cardiac arrest.’ Grand Designs

"The brilliantly curated Modern Shows is a must-visit event for anyone after original mid-century design." Charlotte Abrahams, freelance design writer FT How to Spend it, Guardian, Observer, Elle.

'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, furniture designer

 Just found out the Midcentury Modern show in Dulwich College is the same weekend I'm out of London! #absolutelygutted @modernshows Anna Quayle, Editor

“Keith, I can’t believe I’ve never been before. I’m never missing one again.” Alex Keens-Soper

“Their shows are literally a shoppers paradise whether you're looking for collectable one-offs or small gift items. Get a ticket for the next show now!” Michelle Mason, designer and shop owner, Mason & Painter

“It’s a brilliant show. My boyfriend and I have been coming here since 2008. We bought our grey sofa, 2 vases, an Eames chair. Midcentury Modern  was part of the reason we moved to Crystal Palace.” Louise Wilkinson, designer, has also shown at Midcentury Modern

“Its mouthwatering. It’s like an art gallery. We are desperate to take more of it home but are very happy with our French abstract painting so far.” Christie and Alex first timers

"Nothing compares to the standard and quality of their shows." Haji and White

"Other shows could learn from this." Geoff Ivey
