Sworders January Design Sale

Explore an eclectic array of design treasures in Sworders' January sale, which kicks off with selections from the collection of renowned architect and designer Rabih Hage, featuring works by 21st-century design icons like Piet Hein Eek and Karen Ryan.

Other notable additions include one of Italian polymath Carlo Bugatti's earliest creations: a pair of doors crafted in 1880 for the occasion of his sister’s wedding.

Another favourite is the 'Broken Cabinet,' an intricate, cut, and polished steel piece creating a shattered glass illusion by Maria Pergay, a pioneer in French Post-War design.

The extensive catalogue, spanning over 300 lots, showcases more than 140 years of invention. Viewings take place at the Stansted Saleroom from January 12th, with the auction scheduled for January 16th.

Sworders' next design sale on April 30th is now accepting consignments.

Property Staging

We love any excuse to go to the ancient port of Ramsgate, so our latest Modern Shows® Property Staging for Inigo was an absolute joy to do even in the depths of Winter. Empty apart from the developer’s light fittings we came up with a plan of how best to showcase the beautiful harbour-view property using a mix of midcentury, modern and antique on Inigo’s website. The staging included a collaboration with Gina Cross, art dealer and artist whose work can be seen in the photo. Check out the house with other examples of our property stagings for developers here and follow @property_staging on instagram for updates.

The musical charts the hopes and dreams of three generations over the course of six decades, navigating universal themes of love, loss and survival. Revealing the history of modern Britain through the stories of Sheffield's landmark housing estate Park Hill, it is a heartfelt exploration of the power of community.

Directed by Sheffield Theatres’ Artistic Director Robert Hastie, with music and lyrics by legendary singer-songwriter Richard Hawley and arranged by Tom Deering, there is also a book by accomplished playwright, lyricist and theatre-maker Chris Bush.
