7 Mid Century Modern Stores in London

Within a week, I will be heading to London & Paris on a short vacation and would like to share a bit about my plans. Below are some mid century related stores I’m planning to visit in London. I learned a lot from these handy blogs. (via: hipshopShopikonWeeBirdy) If I miss something, please drop me a line!

A heads Up


Some great news I came across over the week for all the MCM fans out there. The Eames molded wood side chair I posted about earlier seems to be available to purchase now. It comes with a range of three veneer and base options that will go between $669 to $919.

The Danish design company,  Lucie Kaas released a brand new Cathrineholm ceramics collection last year. The Arne Clausen collection is named after the Norwegian artist who designed the lotus pattern for the Cathrineholm company, and has been developed in collaboration with Arne’s family.

The very anticipated Modernica’s sale 2013 is officially set to be on May 18th. ‘This is the 7th time Modernica will be holding the factory sale, with thousands flocking in from all over the country for the opportunity to grab both new and vintage items at rock-bottom prices.’ Don’t forget to mark your calendar!
