Mid Century Brazilian Designers are the focus of gallery JAMES. I have featured James before HERE but I came across their site again and started looking at some of the event photos and I think I started to tear up. I love the Brazilian designers JORGE ZALSZUPIN and JOAQUIM TENREIRO, their works are stunning. There is so much rosewood in these pictures I may just loose it. They obviously sell these pieces, so if you have a few minuets I would click on over and take a look at some sculpted rosewood.

YOUNG COLLECTORS OF MID-CENTURY MODERN PIECES, THE FOUNDERS – A MARRIED COUPLE – DECIDED TO BECOME DEALERS AFTER A TRIP TO BRAZIL, DURING WHICH THEY DISCOVERED THE EXTREME WEALTH OF BRAZILIAN MODERNISM, YET TO BE RECOGNIZED INTERNATIONALLY AS ONE OF THE MAJOR DESIGN MOVEMENTS OF THE 20TH CENTURY”
