Mourning Midcentury Magazine

7 August 2016 No Comment

Having written for Midcentury Magazine for three years, it’s with great sadness that we bid farewell to the coffee table favourite, which after ten issues is taking a hiatus.

Editor Tabitha Teuma wrote in June: “Issue 10 will be the last one, well for now at least, as after five years, I’ve decided to put MidCentury magazine to bed. Not an easy decision, but with a young family and a day-job to contend with, it’s time to take a break.”

But don’t despair just yet as there’s still time to pick up Issue 10, which includes my feature on Northern Ireland’s Mourne Textiles. The family-run company designed and produced mid-century furnishing fabrics for the likes of Robin Day and Terence Conran and is now using its incredible archive to shape the future.

You can also pick up past issues, as well as limited edition prints, at www.midcenturymagazine.com/shop. Pack one in your summer holiday suitcase for poolside reading with a little depth.
