Our Staging Service

Get the best price for your house or investment property with Modern Shows® UK wide property staging service. Alongside our events and 'show on the web' The Modern Marketplace directory, the Modern Shows® team has dressed a legion of flats and houses over the past 4 years in a mix of midcentury and modern and always gets wonderful feedback from clients. You may have already seen quite a bit of our styling popping up mainly on new builds on The Modern House website. We have been very lucky to work with some of their lovely clients and enjoy travelling around discovering everything from a Sixties house in Maidstone with all the original handbuilt features still intact to timber-lined flats in Peckham and award winning new builds in Suffolk.
