Midcentury.Modern

Our Midcentury show at Bexhill on Sea’s internationally-acclaimed De La Warr pavilion is our Summer sojourn away from London and a real hit with midmod fans all over the country. Here you will see a selection of 35 dealers specialising in all aspects of mid-century design for the home. This has evolved into a purely mid-century show in order to showcase more dealers selling smaller pieces including ceramics, glass and fabrics. See furniture and collectables from the middle of the last century set in the finest Modernist surroundings; invest in design classics from the likes of Eames, Nelson, Jacobsen and Aalto while enjoying a good nose around Britain's first public Modernist building and all its free exhibitions. All within a stone's throw of the seaside.

The De La Warr Pavilion, designed by Eric Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff in 1935, now a Grade One listed icon of the Modernist movement, is one of the
most significant spaces in the emerging network of new arts building in the South East of England. The café/bar and restaurant offers fresh, local produce and magnificent sea views and the gallery’s shop is unlike anything else in the area with top Brits showcased.
