In the many online auctions of Catawiki there are design objects and home décor suitable for every wallet. No to mention all the most important styles of the 20th century are covered: from art nouveau and art deco to mid-century vintage pieces, to the cult of the last decades.

The most successful lots are the vintage design furniture and decorative art pieces of the last fifty years. To give the right emphasis on the furniture and lamps of this period, Catawiki organises exclusive and dedicated auctions every two weeks, where catalogues are carefully curated by Catawiki’s team of experts. On a monthly basis, the platform also offers premium auctions where you can buy the best pieces of the second half of the 20th century.

"The demand for vintage furniture from the mid-twentieth century has increased significantly in recent years, but there is still a lot to discover: the most sought-after categories are Italian and ‘70s design," says Pontus Silfverstolpe, co-founder of Barnebys and an expert in antiques and design.

Here are some of the highlights of Catawiki’s current design furniture auction, which you can preview until 14 November.

This rare pair of modernist armchairs was designed in 1959 by Indonesian designer Kho Liang Ie. It is one of the most stunning projects of his collaboration with the Dutch brand Artifort, characterised by a high level of innovation and material experimentation.

In its early years, the Dutch furniture manufacturer Bovenkamp created furniture that was very much inspired by Scandinavian design, in particular the Danish style. Many of these models were falsely attributed to Aksel Bender Madsen, the father of modern Danish design. The set in the picture, consisting of a sofa and two small lounge chairs, was designed between 1950 and 1974 by the Dutch designers Ib Madsen and Acton Schubell.

This pair of desk chairs was designed in 1973 by Ettore Sottsass for Olivetti, and a copy is now part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. This Catawiki pair is extremely rare, as the model was originally devoid of armrests.

The LC3 black armchair was designed in 1928 by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier for Cassina, in collaboration with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. The design of the piece was very innovative for its time as it was the first time that industrial materials instead of wood were used to produce furniture.

In 1994, the French industrial designer Philippe Starck designed the portable TV Jim Nature for SABA. At that time, the predominant material for the production of the outer shell was black plastic. Starck differed from the trend of the time, using a high density chipboard for this portable TV, which had a very limited circulation and is therefore a rare and sought after object.

In 1974, the Dutch designer Gerard van den Berg co-founded the Montis furniture company. One of the first pieces of furniture designed for the company is this leather sofa, which proved to be a successful alternative to the very similar furnishings produced by the Swiss company De Sede.
