showhome midcentury modern shop mailing list press what we like showhome

Advertising company Saatchi and Saatchi were recently bitten by Showhome's Scandinavian bug. Check out our Saatchi/Showhome dining room and board room. If you too would like us to throw a bit of fairy dust in the direction of your office, home or showhome we will not charge extra for the privilege. As you know, to add to our mid-century stock, we sell reissued Hans Wegner rocking chairs and Borge Mogenson dining tables and chairs direct from Denmark at a fraction of shop prices and can get reissued pieces from these and other Scandinavian designers. Feel free to ask at  or make a personal appointment to visit us.


Showhome is available for hire as a location for magazines, film and advertising. For more information contact Lucy on or email .


Showhome is a house, a home and the most personal shopping experience you could hope for. It could be anywhere from the West Coast of America to Japan's hilly Osaka suburbs. Set deep in a wood in South East London, Showhome was conceived by two people, who went in search of Scandinavian and British design for themselves and got so bitten by the sourcing bug they now want to share it with you. Showhome mixes contemporary and mid-century the way you would in your own home. Buying from dealers, designers and auction houses all over the world Showhome acts as the middle man, taking the risk without charging huge returns for doing it. Check Showhome's prices against others and we think you will see what we mean. Besides, what better way to avoid the huge retail mark-up than by snooping around somebody's home?


Showhome opened the door in June 2003 offering everything on the ground floor for sale for one day only. You could buy mid-century Scandinavian teak, cherry, beech and rosewood furniture from the likes of Arne Jacobsen, Bruno Mathsson, Hans Wegner. Showhome sold mid-century glass from Nanny Still for Riihimaki and Per Lutken and Otto Brauer for Holmegaard. Signed ceramics from Finnish designer Tapio Wirkkala sat next to modern pieces from ceramicists Scabetti, Joanne Windaus and Phorm. You could order the Michael Young lights hanging in the hallway, take home the cushions in bold 60s fabrics piled up next to the sofa, even walk off with the vintage Ercol children's chairs sitting outside the downstairs loo. Showhome had prints from artists Sharon Elphick and Kavel and tea sets, bags, trainers and wallpaper from Eley Kishimoto. Showhome has since gone on to curate Midcentury.Modern twice a year, an event where top British mid-century dealers and British contemporaries get together to sell to the public.
