Avid readers of Midcentury will no doubt recognise this Blackheath townhouse from Issue 08, and I couldn't contain my delight when I spotted it up for sale on The Modern House a week or so ago.  Not that I'm in the market for a 'des res' south of the river, but it was such a joy to see even more wonderful images - and a floorplan - of what might just be one of my favourite homes.  Head over to The Modern House for more details on this Grade II-listed Span house, its history and architect Eric Lyons.

Oh, and I hate to disappoint, but this exceptional little house is now 'under offer'.  Hardly surprising.

There's just a few days left to savour the delights of Galerie Kreo's latest exhibition - Enlightened 50s: Iconic French Lighting from a Modern Decade - before it comes to an end this Thursday.  The exhibition blurb makes for an interesting read ... and allows one to brush up on the names of those all important French mid-twentieth century lighting designers to boot!

It's all in the detail

This wonderful picture of an aluminum group chair upholstered in Alexander Girard hopsack requires little introduction and no actual words, except perhaps this equally wonderful quote written by Charles and Ray Eames …

"The details are not the details;  they make the product."
