Material Luxe, Winter 2013 Collection

A celebration of the game changers; the creatives of the 1960s and 70s who dared to be bolder than the average bear. This winter we revel in the cutting edge music, film, art and design which created unique new directions in style.

Mr. Bigglesworthy presents Material Luxe, a collection of high end Mid Century furniture from some of the leading designers from Denmark, Britain and The United States. Crafted in an era of Jazz, Rock and Soul, the designs carry a fearless attitude, innate glamour and individual style. We're informed by the legends who stand out in music history. The lip and swagger of Jagger, the confidence and cool of Hendrix and the sexy intensity of Nina Simone. We invite you to experience the textures and materials of rock star style - lavish curves of leather, highly grained rosewood and the sharp gloss of a chrome finish.
