Furniture, lighting, art, stuff!

The Design & Decadence sale at John Rolfe in Tetbury on November 19 comes with the description: 'Furniture, lighting, art, stuff!'

A Terence Conran chair

A glove chair designed by Sir Terence Conran (1931-2020), with red leather upholstery on polished fibreglass, is estimated at £500-800.

Let's take a look at what it's got.


A Danish dining table and chairs

This 'Roundette' Danish teak dining table and four chairs designed by Hans Olsen for Frem Røjle Møblefabrik is something of a classic among mid-century furniture fans. The chairs stow neatly under the table, making it ideal for small spaces in modern homes. The set is estimated at £500-800.

A pair of tables

This pair of small 1950s painted oak tables is estimated at £40-80.


A ceramic desk lamp

The auction house describes this Italian mid-century ceramic desk lamp as "quite remarkable". Its shape reminds us of a food mixer but we have to say it is rather funky. It comes with an estimate of £600-800.

Two desk lamps

This pair of vintage Herbert Terry 'Anglepoise' desk lamps is estimated at £80-120.


A woodblock print

This woodblock print entitled The Rialto is by Adrian Allinson (1890-1959) and is estimated at £60-100.

A French poster

This poster advertising the Monaco Aquarium was designed by Jean Carlu (1900-1997) and measures 124cm x 90cm. It is estimated at £300-500


A vintage sign

A restored vintage aluminium advertising sign, 49cm x 49cm, estimated at £50-80. 

Two vases

These two Scandinavian vases are estimated at £60-80.

A disco bar

You don't see these at auction every day, it's a 'Disco Bar' with a programmable LED lighting system. It is estimated at £15,000-20,000.
