Embracing Simplicity, Style and Workmanship



What do Eames and Miller have in common with Jensen, Hansen and Anderson?

Let’s start with they're all part of a resurgence of love for design inspired by the mid-century modern era in home furnishings, décor, art and architecture. A love for stylish, yet functional, clean-lined designs, exemplified by furniture designers Charles and Ray Eames and Herman Miller.

It’s not hard to see why people are in love with this style once again. The scale and simplicity is perfect for anyone streamlining their life; whether you’re in pursuit of a more Zen-like environment or responding to the practicality of what works best in the structure of condo living.

And with the same style aesthetic, creations by the jewellery designers of that period are equally relevant and appealing today, with their focus on simplicity, style and workmanship.

The philosophy of designers Georg Jensen, Hans Hansen and David Anderson and others was to create designs of both functionality and beauty - craftsmanship at the forefront.

Our upcoming Silver & Costume Jewellery auction features several excellent examples by Jensen, Hansen and Anderson, as well as by lesser-known designers, whose designs are equally compelling.

If you are a lover of anything mid-century modern, make sure to you take a look at the many amazing offerings in our September 30 – October 5 online auction.
