Mid-Century excellence at Mid Mod Design

If this is the Dutch version of antiquing, then I’m on my way to Amsterdam!

We recently showed you Dutch store De Oude Speelkamer, crammed full of goodies including retro cradles and vintage toys. If that wasn’t enough to make you wish for a trip to The Netherlands, then Mid Mod Design will.

The Mid Mod collection is focused on fine examples of Mid-Century modern design and all the pieces are available to buy. Although the collection includes lighting, art and furniture, it’s the kids section that has my attention.

Tubular metal chairs and tables from the fifties, Ikea pieces from the sixties and an interesting collection of vintage toys are just some of the gems in the ever-changing collection at Mid Mod.

I particularly love the incredible rockers – one of them doubles as a toy car and was designed by Hans Brockhage under supervision of Mart Stam in 1950.

The very best thing about Mid Mod Design? They ship worldwide (no trip to Amsterdam needed after all)!
