William Plunkett (1928-2013) made a memorable and lasting contribution to postwar British design in the the 1960s as an artist and furniture designer, some of his designs are still being manufactured
today. Working in a Modernist idiom but in a highly individual style,
he combined engineering skills with sculptural flair to create striking
metal-framed seating and tables that won a string of design awards.
Our sculpture is a one of a kind bronze abstract piece signed and dated 1963, 23 inches tall.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
