Its absence at specialist fairs during lockdown was noticed. Buyers were calling the Midcentury Modern team on a regular basis last year asking when their fairs would be returning, said Lucy Ryder Richardson, the show’s co-founder and director.
And now they are back in their original home, the light-filled Christison Hall at Dulwich College on Sunday, March 13, with 50 Mid-century dealers selling Italian lighting, Danish sideboards, designer chairs and the rest along with 25 contemporary designers.
Included in the Mid-century line-up is London design firm Sauce which currently has a rare pair of yellow and green 1960s steel and canvas French sun loungers priced at £895.
Ryder Richardson and her Midcentury Modern co-founder Petra Curtis have been close to the collecting scene for many years with an enviable list of dealers and designers at their fingertips.
A logical progression is an involvement in property staging and the team now works with architects’ new builds for the London-based Modern House estate agency where the duo mix Mid-century and contemporary pieces in room stylings.
