“Modern Shows® are a rare breed, very personable, very pragmatic and a great eye for design and detail. Their thoughtful, considered approach has really embellished our properties. It has been a joy working with them.” Nick Glendinning, Nest Development
Speed up the process of selling with a mix of midcentury & modern styled by our founders, former stylist and journalist Lucy Ryder Richardson and graphic designer and photographer Petra Curtis. Moving away from the showhome look, the dynamic duo mix iconic midcentury with cool contemporary to make your home stand out while still having a personality.
All too often the pieces seen dressing new developments come in as freshmen with no patina or story. With access to early pieces from the likes of Eames, Cherner, Bertoia and Nelson from our own archive and large database of dealers and designers and with a wealth of experience from 15 years of styling spaces and curating shows we bring a fresh and knowledgable aesthetic to staging.
“Modern Shows dressing of our show house really helped to sell the property. The mix of midcentury modern furniture and contemporary design created an aspirational setting that allowed potential buyers to envisage themselves in the space and aspire to purchase.” Jonathan Rose – Delbanco, Meyer and Co.
Properties sell faster and achieve higher prices when styled beautifully.
“Modern Shows arrived with great style and charm to create a wonderful and authentic space within our modern development in Barnsbury.” Robin and Susan Hodges
