Earlier this year I wrote my first piece for the independent publication Midcentury Magazine without actually having ever picked up a copy myself…the issue I worked on went to print this month and earlier this week I opened my mail to find a surprisingly beautiful, compact tome filled with poetic imagery and packed with super useful information on Midcentury design.
Distributed in small batches the magazine is a biannual publication, set up by Tabitha Tuema and her partner at the start of this year, following their quest to furnish their own 1960s flat on the Dulwich Estate. Created with modern design enthusiasts in mind, whether experienced collectors or complete novices the magazine aims to champion this popular period of design and highlight its continued relevance to modern living.
From useful features on Midcentury dealers in London to beautiful spreads of stylish lived-in homes and [my feature] spotlights on mid-century furnished guesthouses in Devon the mag is truly great read. Pick one up here!
