Today’s Very Vintage Vendor is Mr Bigglesworthy!
Mr. Bigglesworthy is Auckland’s premier vintage design store. Owners Dan and Emma Eagle focus on rare and exceptional mid-century modern furniture, art and contemporary design. Pieces are sourced from right here in New Zealand and around the globe, with a focus on timeless design made to last a lifetime. For the Bigglesworthy team, “good design will always be relevant. It has the power to create a better world and transform everyday objects into inspired statements of form, function and beauty.”
Conservation is at the heart of the Mr. Bigglesworthy offering – every piece is thoroughly checked and lovingly restored. There is a focus on preserving the character and patina of the vintage items, while ensuring they will display beautifully in a contemporary interior.
Restoration work is performed on site, by hand, in the team’s Kingsland workshop/studio. For advanced, museum-quality restoration, Bigglesworthy call on some of Auckland’s best restorers, who have worked on items for Te Papa and the Auckland Museum.
In addition to vintage products, Mr. Bigglesworthy is now the exclusive stockist for a series of legacy brands including Ercol and Rex Kralj.
Throughout their years of traveling, sourcing and collaborating with leading local and international auction houses, Dan and Emma have become experts in their field. Their Ponsonby Gallery showcases a wealth of knowledge and some of the most coveted modern and contemporary design.
“We’d love to invite anyone who loves vintage design to come along and take a look through our gallery. We’re also pleased to be offering a complimentary coffee thanks to our friends over at Café L’Affare”.
