Autumnal, Mid Century Orange

Mid Century Wares And A Mid Century Affair.

Yesterday morning was spent on a sunny stock hunt in the build up to our North London furniture flea this coming weekend in the beautiful Hornsey town hall. We will be there Sunday morning from 10.30 am until 4.30pm. Run by Judy’s Affordable Vintage, it should definitely go down on the list of things to do this weekend. The markets are always awash with stylish Mid Century affordable wares and this one has the bonus of being in the splendid Hornsey Town Hall which is worth a visit in itself especially as it’s not very often you get to venture into this space, it is normally closed to the public and will be undergoing refurbishment work in the very near future so will soon be out of bounds for the foreseeable future so is well worth a visit while you still can. Here is a sneak peak at the inside and its beautiful original features, the perfect backdrop for all our Mid Century wares….

This stylish Danish drinks trolley will be putting in an appearance, such a lovely versatile piece of furniture, easy to move around and doesn’t take up much space, I love the clean lines and Mid Century feel. The lovely green glass jar will also be coming along, these always look lovely filled with bunches of flowers or are great to create your own terrarium,  perfect if you don’t have access to any outdoor space, always very therapeutic to surround yourself with a bit of greenery.

We always love a good Anglepoise lamp so will be taking along this stylish white one on Sunday, such classic pieces, they never date and are so versatile in any setting….

When in Hornsey it would be rude not to take along a piece of Hornsea Pottery (of course spelt differently and originating in Yorkshire not in Hornsey in North London, but sounds the same), we have just the thing with this stylish seventies salt and pepper set….

Also pictured above a Danish Mid Century toast rack, this would definitely spruce up any breakfast table.

Hope you can make it down to see us and look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible on Sunday.

Just to sign off with a few ideas of how a drinks trolley can be used in more ways

other than just its intended purpose…

Have a great week and hope to see you Sunday.
