mid-century modern


We couldn't resist buying a beautiful hand-printed Irish linen cushion and lampshade by Tamasyn Gambell  from the New Craftsman Gallery in St Ives, they have created a wonderfully evocative mid-century interior with an exhibition of furniture, artwork and interior objects in their new winter exhibition 10th Nov to 12th Jan.

....Celebrating the impact of Mid Century Modern style, a significant design movement that broadly influenced architectural, interior, graphic and urban design throughout the 1950s and 60s , this special exhibition will showcase Modern and Contemporary pieces that reflect the era’s emphasis on function, utility, and sculptural form.

There will also be a display of photography by internationally acclaimed artist Andrew Lanyon, who’s brief sojourn into photography coincided with his years at film school in the late sixties.

Comprised of signed original prints on Agfa Portriga Rapid paper, this unique collection brings together images taken by Lanyon between 1965 and 1972 in Cornwall, London and Paris.
