'To the Brave' Collection

Mr. Bigglesworthy is proud to present 'To the Brave'. A Collection devoted to bold furniture and visionary designers.

This collection is a tribute to the talented individuals who forged new roads, embraced new forms and defined an era. It is a showcase of designs that carry a fearless attitude, innate glamour and an individual style we know you'll love. To the Brave. To those who see what can be. To the few that stand up and press forward. Without you there is nothing new to say. Mr. Bigglesworthy presents some of the leading mid century furniture from Denmark, Italy, Britain and The United States. We also have some special pieces from right here in New Zealand. Pieces from 'To the Brave' will be in the gallery and live on our website on the 7th of November.
