Welcome and congratulations on finding me.
Dad-design.co.uk is a small site/business run from my home address in sunny Crystal Palace South East London.
I come from an art history/design background and love all things mid-century, whether its furniture, art, ceramics, fashion, photography, automobiles, even old vintage bikes I simply love the period.
I suppose you could say my biggest focus though is British, Scandinavian, European and American furniture and design circa 1949-1969. To me this period defines a seminal moment as far as embracing the new modernity is concerned.
Like most other dealers/collectors I began trawling boot sales and markets looking for vintage bargains many years ago. And what started out initially as an early morning hobby has slowly over a period of probably 15 years evolved finally into a small business.
I continue to buy only what I like, and hope you like it too. I am more than happy to source certain pieces for you and I'm always up for a nerdy natter (anoraks optional), so feel free to get in touch.
As stated I am based in Crystal Palace which is in London SE19. The nearest mainline train stations are Sydenham Hill and Gipsy Hill, I am 5 mins away from these and can pick you up, both are accessible from either Victoria or London Bridge and the journey is approx 20 mins.
All items can be viewed via appointment, please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07940 458 890
All pieces shown on the website are available for hire, subject to terms/insurance
I can also arrange packing and delivery countrywide (please enquire for quote)
