Brand story

Brand story

The Mid-Century Modern style has such an enduring place in our hearts, and for good reason. It emerged into the sunlight after the Second World War, at a time when furniture was becoming more than just a practical necessity, and thus is imbued with the excitement of possibility felt across the country at that time. The pre-eminent authority in this particular field is Evan Lobel. Evan has spent the last twenty years promoting important 20th century designers whose originality and exceptional craftsmanship and materials transformed their works into art.
