This is a specialist sale of mid century classic designed furniture and collectables. These auctions have proved to be very popular with specialist buyers and private individuals looking for something out of the ordinary to furnish their homes. Our contemporary sales are jam-packed with Scandinavian, American and British designs by the ‘outside of the box’ thinkers of the 1950s through to today.
