Why? Better known for its popular Birdy motifs, Magpie has launched a new range inspired by Midcentury interiors. Following the tradition of Ridgeway’s Homemaker ceramics collection, sold in Woolworths during the 1960s, The Modern Home depicts fashionable interior designs of the Atomic era on smaller home accessories.

The alphabetical compendium of 26 of the last century’s most iconic designs are illustrated in a vintage screen-print style on mugs, plates, boxes, tea towels, trays and cards, and include Kay Bojesen’s wooden monkey, Eero Saarinen’s Tulip and Arne Jacobsen’s Egg chairs and Ladderax-style shelving systems.
