The shop shows a selection of vintage graphics, furniture,

ceramics and textiles by British artists of the 20C. We cover

the period between WW1 and the Festival of Britain in 1951.



We're interested in all the things artists have made that aren't painting,

drawing and sculpture. The willingness of artists to create new kinds of

work has its origins in the avant-gardist desire to escape the bourgeois

values of salon painting and to engage with audiences beyond the gallery.

Coincidentally the 1920s and 30s was a period during which different

forms of modernism emerged in consequence to the political and social

upheavals of WW1. The character of English modernism depends as much

on the landscapes of garden and seaside as on the vistas of the metropolis.

It's distinguished by a modest, low-key scale that finds expression in the

beach hut, garden shed and artist's studio. It's a comfy modernism


Anyway, it's special stuff for home and not too expensive
