As the 'go to' resource for genuine Mid-Century Modern design, we have had a lot of requests recently for some of our stock to be used in feature films, a TV series, two new UK design books to be published soon and advertising shoots. This has to be one of the best - new Powers Whiskey magazine ad for America. Beautifully shot (thanks DC) using a few carefully chosen pieces like the stunning Peter Lovig desk and and an Eames Softpad 217.

Finding a good example of a vintage radiogram is the Holy Grail for most Mid Century Modernistas, and we have just sourced this cracker that will have you twerking around your groovy pad. A FIDELITY RG27 am/VHF radiogram from 1966, this one is fully serviced and both record player and radio are fully working. The 97cm long teak cabinet has a slinky tambour sliding door revealing a BSR autochanger deck and is supported by atomic legs. Units of this quality don't hang around long so to reserve or view this piece please contact


The Astro table is one of the most iconic and enduring G Plan designs from the 1960s, and this beautiful oval version has just arrived in stock. Sweeping curved interlocking legs support a teak oval 'flyer saucer' top with clear glass centre - a rare thing - a beautiful design that is also really practical. POA

In the years following the Second World War, John and Sylvia Reid were at the forefront of British mid-century modern design. They were employed as design consultants by Stag, and designed some iconic modern pieces. The first project John and Sylvia Reid did for Stag was a bedroom suite called Cumberland, or the `C` range, which was strikingly minimalist. The `C` range had a strong influence on the design of British mass market modern furniture throughout the Fifties.
 We have just sourced a beautiful original example of a C range dressing table and chest of drawers in an oak finish. The dressing table is neat, at only 89cms wide, and comes with a Formica top which flips up to reveal a mirror and storage section - this unit would also make a fabulous desk or workstation. The chest of drawers is 76cms wide and matches the height of the dressing table at 75cms - both are raised on atomic wooden legs. An iconic original design from the 50s rarely seen in Ireland, and are now available as a set or separately. To reserve or view please contact
