21st Century Furniture IV – A Selling Exhibition
Where: The Millinery Works Gallery Islington
When: 10th Feb – 10th Mar 2013
Only every other year does the largest collection of contemporary fine furniture exhibit in London. This is the very rare chance to see the latest innovations from a British Movement revered across the globe.
An opportunity to see, buy, collect or commission a piece of sublime craftsmanship, produced by the most talented designer makers who practicethe hand skills of the Arts & Crafts era and combine them with the design sensibilities of today.
There are few fine furniture exhibitions, mainly due to the logistics of transporting and showcasing such a collection, so grab this chance while you can. At a time when local industry seems to be disappearing before our eyes this is one that has remained at the forefront for over a century. Due to an uncompromising quest for quality that few other countries have the expertise to match, furniture made to this level is something that we can most definitely make Britain great. This furniture is unique in design, made with the finest materials and latest innovations by incredibly skillful artisans.
Like all the finest things in life these pieces will last much more than a lifetime and will grow more beautiful with age.
