Mr Bigglesworthy's Long Weekend
Furniture specialist Mr Bigglesworthy is paying tribute to the bach
Mid-Century modern specialist Mr Bigglesworthy looks to New Zealand’s laid back beach culture and coastal architecture for inspiration, with a new collection of furniture that would look at home at the beach house or add a touch of retro holiday vibes to a city home.
Mr Bigglesworthy owners Dan and Emma Eagle have sourced modernist pieces that complement the modern bach, with a focus on clean lines, warm timbers and a connection to the beach surroundings. Open now, the collection — appropriately titled Long Weekend — includes furniture from New Zealand and international designers including Eames seating, a Rex folding rocking chair and outdoor furniture from contemporary designer Bob MacDonald. Other highlights include a rare 1970s burl wood case sofa by American designer Milo Baughman and 1960s Wheat Sheaf Coffee Table by Edward Wormley (pictured).
• Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin burl olivewood and chrome case sofa, $14,000, Edward Wormley for Dunbar marble top wheat sheaf coffee table, $2800, hand carved 1960s mahogany herons, $150 for pair, Whites Aviation hand tinted photo of Cable Bay, $850, hand tufted rug by Tim Main for Dilana Workshop $3950.
