Why we're passionate about Vintage, Mid Century and 20th Century furniture
Design is much more than form, function and material possession; it enriches our lives and satisfies our souls. It surrounds us in a subtle and comforting way and provides a welcome haven from the pressures of everyday life.
This website celebrates this ideal and showcases design from the 20th and 21st century. If you, therefore, want to find and buy vintage, mid-century modern, retro or contemporary design and furniture we have something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to invest in iconic furniture or want to be inspired by something newer, we’ll do our best to turn your head. We aim to complete the circle from the past to the present, and this highlights how enduring design and contemporary form can co-exist happily side by side.
Great design that's also great for the environment
We live in a throwaway culture where many of the things we buy have a limited life span. That is, in part, understandable given the huge increase we've seen in population over the last century. This has led to more intensive, lower-cost manufacturing and to a global market in goods; which naturally has a significant environmental impact. High-end design and craftsmanship of course still exist but at a price, the majority can't afford it. This is why making more use of everything around us can only benefit us all - and what better way to do that than to honour the beauty and history of design by buying preloved and cherished vintage and contemporary items?
Cherished Designs is the culmination of my lifetime of collecting Art and Design and from the last 13 years of working with discerning private clients and interior designers to create a new online presence. I'm passionate about beautiful objects and from whatever decade or century; from the 19th through to the 21st, but with an emphasis on Mid-century and 20th Century Art and Design.
Having also designed, curated and launched the ARC Eclectic design show in London in June 2017 and Rewind Design Events in July 2017 to further the cause of building the vintage marketplace, I've since been concentrating full time on Cherished Designs. CD’s objective is to bring beautiful items into people’s homes; your four walls are so much more than a 'box'. From classic to contemporary, and always with an emphasis on quality and customer service, we aim to offer you something different - often unusual but always captivating, creative and compelling.
