"We are delighted to welcome all our clients back to the mansion on Cavendish Square. Viewing art and design online is one thing, but to see the pieces in reality is regarded by many as being much more valuable and helpful. We appreciate everyone who is interested in our field and those that want to learn more about each object", says Sebastien Holt, director of Modernity in London.

Anyone interested can book a private viewing with Sebastien by accessing the booking link above.

The reaction from visitors has been very positive so far, with one saying,

"It felt like this crumbling, austere Palladian style house on Cavendish Square was mirroring our deteriorating, scarred planet in the time of Covid; our world in lockdown.
A reflection of anger, fear, anxiety … On the other hand, we have this elegant, delicate, fragile, spectacular, diverse collection of paintings, sculptures, furniture, ceramics, glass, lighting, jewellery, textile and tapestries.
A reflection of a new life … A visit of an extraordinary balanced relationship between decay and beauty, translated into Hope … Dramatic and soothing!"

"I will be at the showroom on a daily basis and am delighted to show anyone interested in our design collection, beautifully spread across all four floors", says Sebastien Holt.

The incredible space can still be accessed through our online viewing room, containing a selection of beautiful imagery, a video tour, catalogue, and virtual walkthrough.

Stephen Friedman Gallery moved into the building on 18th of January, and the art exhibition has been extended until May 28th.

This collaboration aims to present prime pieces of contemporary art, with an emphasis on works by two of Sweden’s foremost artists, Mamma Andersson and Andreas Eriksson, alongside Modernity’s collection of Nordic furniture, lighting, textiles, and ceramics. Included in our new selection is an exceptional ’Snowflake’ ceiling lamp by Paavo Tynell and an early model of the iconic Chieftain chair by Finn Juhl. We also have a range of smaller objects available to see, including a rare ceramic vase by Axel Salto.
