I can't get enough of Marion Hall Best and #themoderns at #museumofsydney, the unsung heroes who transformed Sydney with European sophistication grounded in beautiful craftsmanship, quality construction and innovative ideas for living... 🏆It is an important time to reflect and learn from these design successes of the past so we might make better cities for the future....

A taste of the new 7"s #TheModerns, #TvFreaks, #JJDoll & #MadExistence all different all bangers.

Not our new house but the #themoderns exhibition featuring European designers in Sydney. Also lucky enough to see @modernister #manabouttheshow talking about his show Man about the house. Very inspiring afternoon all round. #sydneylivingmuseums #mos

Susan Orlay's charming and evocative illustration of her life in late 1940s Sydney. Including her own modern furniture designs and some fresh looking yellow stripey curtains. There is so much to take in at @othermoderns exhibition The Moderns @sydlivmus it's worth several visits. Small space but it packs a punch in content and display. #interiordesignhistory #australianfurnituredesigners #susanorlay #othermoderns #themoderns #emigredesigners

Was there such a thing as the 'Kafka style' ? Come in for a chat at @shapirosydney I'm working in the gallery all day on this outstanding sale that happens to include furniture crossing all my current research interests - emigre designers and cabinetmakers like Kafka, early Fred Ward furniture and overlooked decorator/ furniture designers like Noel Coulson. Introduce yourself and I'd be happy to bust a few myths about the Kafka style #interiordesignhistory #australianfurnituredesigners #paulkafka #paulkafkachair #kafkafurniture #themoderns #othermoderns #emigredesigners #midcenturymodern

Grant Featherston Wing armchair 1951 Lot 120 @shapirosydney Design sale busts a few myths about modernism. The modern interior had many nuances and in this case Featherston's design, one of the most up to date on offer in the local market, was upholstered in pale pink damask weave in a floral bouquet pattern. #featherstonchair #grantfeatherston #australianfurnituredesigners #themoderns #interiordesignhistory #damask #modernbutnotmodernist

"Among our Continental friends exclusive furniture has always been very popular. During the past years I have enjoyed fulfilling the "dreams" of my clientele by introducing both European style and craftsmanship to Australian homes." This was how Viennese émigré designer Paul Kafka announced the relocation of his furniture factory to 161 Botany Road, Waterloo in 1949. PE Kafka Modern Exclusive Furniture set the standard for custom made furniture in post-war Sydney; using high quality timbers and exceptionally well made, for many in Sydney’s émigré community owning Kafka furniture was sign you had made it.

Sydney launch of @geoffi35 new book on Grant Featherston the first since Terence Lane's 1988 @ngvmelbourne catalogue Featherston chairs.

Hungarian interior and furniture designer Steven Kalmar was a household name in the 1950s and 60s. Advertisements for his Rowe Street store Kalmar Interiors, appeared in nearly every issue of Australian House & Garden magazine during the early 50s, asking 'Do you need modern furniture?’ Kalmar later become a design authority, penning a weekly home improvement and renovation column, ‘You and your home with Steven Kalmar’ in the Sunday Telegraph from 1961 to 1975. He then wrote on design for Women’s World (later Woman’s Day) until 1981. The Moderns: European Designers in Sydney at the Museum of Sydney features this Kalmar furniture from the collection of @twentiethcenturykenneale @slm and @ali_in_situ 👍🏼
