Too Cool For School
Today was Sunday and I went back to school.....to attend the inspirational Midcentury Modern interiors show called MIDCENTURY EAST which was held in the fantastic location of Haggerston School, Hackney, London and the only secondary school to be designed by Erno Goldfinger. The school has recently been refurbished by Fiona Lamb of Avanti Architects and it was stunning to be viewing the abundance of cool Danish vintage sofas, German ceramics and 1960's rosewood furniture in these surroundings. It would have been perfectly possible to spend thousands of pounds there today had my bank manager allowed it!
I fell in love with this striking and very stylish Panton rocking chair.....
.......Verner Panton (13 February 1926 – 5 September 1998) is considered one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers and his rocking chair is now on my Wish List!
