Cadmium specialises in high quality 20th Century design furniture, lighting and objects from Scandinavia, Italy, France and the Netherlands. Their website is very clean and user friendly, with an host of unusual design pieces, such as this rare ‘Gilda’ Circle Sofa by Michel Ducaroy, designed in 1972 and made by Ligne Roset. The sofa consists of eight elements, whilst seven elements form the sofa, the additional element can be used to make a full circle – perfect for creating a sunken conversation pit! (The elements are connected by metal buckles to hold them in place.)

As with so many design dealers, there is always so much more in stock than they have listed on their websites – this is also the case at Cadmium, who have a warehouse full of beautiful design pieces at their base in the Netherlands.
