Modern Times

Modern Times – a mid-century furniture Pop Up, until June 12th.  Hans Wegner couches and a Designed in Brunswick cushion. Artwork top right by Ellie Malin.  Timber Squirrel bottom right by Bride & Wolfe.

June must be unofficial month of the Pop-up!  I’ve listed a few lovely  retail events in the left-hand sidebar this week… and just in case you missed it last week, here’s another!  Modern Times has popped up in St Kilda with a one-off collection of vintage mid century furniture, plus a sweet range of accessories and artworks by local designers inspired by the modernist style.  Alongside vintage pieces by Hans Wegner and Charles & Ray Eames you’ll find artwork by Printspace and Ellie Malin, soft furnishings by Designed in Brunswick and Retro Print Revival, timber accessories by Bride & Wolfe and many more!  It’s such a thoughtfully curated collection, and the prices are surprisingly friendly.

Modern Times is the creation of Melbourne design enthusiasts Amy Voterakis and her hubbie Joel, who may or may not have the same surname as her, I cannot confirm for sure :)

There are only 2 weeks left to visit Modern Times so hop to it if you haven’t visited already!

Modern Times
12 – 14 Belford st
St Kilda
Vic 3182

Open 10.00am to 6.00pm daily until June 12th

ps. You may have noticed Modern Times is a TDF sponsor this month.  I’m super sensitive about editorial independence as you all know – PLEASE BE ASSURED I wouldn’t blog it if it wasn’t awesome.  Promise.

The back of a couch never looked so good.  Nice work Mr Wegner.

    heard about this little pop up show. Wish I was in Melbourne to check it out – or had a beautiful house to put the furniture in! :)

    GORGEOUS! LOVE IT! How exciting will have to make it there before it closes. Loved Pure & General as well…those timber mugs were divine.
