Mar 13, 2015 Mid-Century Interior Design A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to meet David Farrell, owner of Avalon Design. He has an incredible knowledge of mid-century furniture and design. Not only can he put any designer to just about any piece but he also has a profound background knowledge of their history and development over the years. David’s passion for mid-century design has certainly rubbed off on me and though I am a total novice and have an endless amount to learn I have decided to incorporate some pieces into Vintage Shrewd. At the moment we have several 1960s/1970s sideboards (The McIntosh sideboard, to my surprise was even in the March edition of Elle Decoration). It sits in the shop in total harmony with the beautiful vintage fashion that surrounds it.
