Last weekend we hit the Midcentury event of the year, the Midcentury Modern show in Dulwich (a neighborhood in South London). We headed south on the Overground network and got there just as it opened. And just after several hundred people beat us to it:
I’ve never seen such a well-done vintage/midcentury show, ever. There were 5 large rooms backed with solid exhibitors (I would guess over 50 in all). Best of all, the pieces were truly quality midcentury. No Austin Powers vibe.
The crowd was unreal – mostly hip young families and in vast quantity. We were able to score one of these:
