Twentieth Century Antiques specialises in British, Scandinavian, European and American art & design 1920-1970, covering the periods of Modernism, Midcentury and Post War design. My stock includes pieces by some of the most important designers of the twentieth century, including Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Robin Day and Charles & Ray Eames. Items range from rare and highly sought after designs to pieces by lesser, and sometimes unknown, designers. Of upmost importance is that all my items are selected for their style and quality. All my pieces are original and vintage and I always strive to buy examples that are in excellent condition. I work with a team of highly skilled upholsterers and furniture restorers to ensure that all items are ready for your home.
My approach to retail is to allow clients to make informed, confident and happy decisions. I have 25 years experience in dealing with a wide range of customers - private individuals and collectors, international dealers and institutions - some purchasing for pleasure, others for investment. I pride myself in my ability to communicate with people at each level.
I understand that it can sometimes be difficult for clients to purchase online, items they have not handled. As such, I am always happy to provide more photos and full condition reports. I offer a specialist sourcing service, drawing on a network of international contacts that I have built up over the years.
