Anyone who has followed the blog knows my first love is Swedish ceramics from the 1950s and next to Stig Lindberg and Gustavsberg, my favourite factory is Rorstrand and my favourite designer Inger Persson. I am delighted (ahem) with this new arrival just in time for the Dublin Flea this Sunday, 19th December. A little cracker of a table lamp with a azure deep blue glaze and a biscuit fired base this one comes fully signed by the artist and the factory. DeLIGHTful!

Boomerang coffee tables are just the most useful thing you can have in your retro home. Beautiful organic shape with tactile curves, they wrap perfectly around any chair or sofa and really have that 1950s atomic look. The shape was really hot in the fifties and they were made in everything from exotic woods to formica. We have a fantastic range at the moment, a beautiful pair of dark teak laminated tables with wooden legs, a stunning mahogany table with exotic wood inlays, a cool curvy 50s oak table with lovely warm patina, and a formica laminated wood effect table with sputnik legs. Please email info@kirkmodern for more info and prices before they fly away
