globe-and-mail-logoYearn to collect vintage mid-century-modern furniture- Read these tips first - The Globe and Mail

We are delighted to have been cited in yesterday’s GLOBE & MAIL (Life & Arts section)

The article focuses on the recognition and subsequent global rise in demand for original Mid Century modern design.

A number of dealers from around the world were asked to comment on this value increase and also give some expert advice on how to approach shopping for original Mid Century design.

We are quoted as saying ‘When you buy original mid-century modern, your money is not gone, it’s merely locked away’ says Lawrence Blairs of Atomic Design in Toronto

‘You have to connect with the piece in some way, maybe it reminds you of your grandparents house or the colours in a painting. Even if you have limited knowledge of the designer its ultimately how it makes you feel that’s important’

Thank you Ellen Himelfarb!
