About

Inspired by a lifelong interest in Modern Design, I opened my first shop in Melbourne in 1996. ‘Fab Furniture’ allowed me to indulge my passion for Modernist Architecture, Design and Art.

22 years later, I launched my third retail store, Mode 707, in the Melbourne suburb of Collingwood. Mode 707 presents a carefully curated, and eclectic mix, of 20th Century Lighting, Furniture and Decorative Arts.

Mode 707 specialises in rarer pieces that are outstanding examples of design from the last century, chosen for their  significant contribution to design, and often with their own provenance.

While still Melbourne based, Mode 707 is now exclusively based online.

I enjoy sharing my passion and knowledge with clients, and explaining the history behind each piece. I treat each piece as if it were my own, not just part of an inventory. I encourage phone enquiries and emails, and you will alway engage with me personally.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you find that special piece.
