BarbMama Design, founded in 2012 and situated near Amsterdam, is the result of a lifelong love for beautiful things. Owners Marc and Barbara Jongsma and Marcel Geerts, share a passion for 20th century design, whether it’s a sought after icon from the likes of Jean Prouvé, Wegner or Finn Juhl, or a beautiful piece from a lesser known designer, they will stock it. The result is an impressive and eclectic collection of design from the 1950s to the present day. Their taste is broad and adventurous and ranges from the austerity of classic Mid-century Dutch and Scandinavian furniture, to the more outrageous designs of the Memphis Group. Though relatively new in the business, they’ve established a reputation as a solid and trustworthy company with high standards. You can see them at Design Icons in April with some very unique items
such as ‘Gaston’ - a rare and quirky 1993 dress boy from Italian company Bof, designed and signed by Marc Sadler.
