20th Century Design

Interest in 20th Century Design has never been stronger, with solid prices and exceptional value driving sellers and buyers at every level.

With the turn of the 20th Century arrived a new way of thinking. Pioneering designers probed the future for inspiration, rather than the past. Today’s curators and serious collectors prize that vision, confident in the long-term intellectual and material value of these modernists’ works.

As with every good design, Modernist and Post Modern works continue to serve a purpose closer to home: interior designers and traditional homeowners have embraced Millennials’ penchant for uncluttered ease; today’s lifestyle remixed in open, multipurpose spaces that temper classic antiques and collections with modern lines.
