Andrew Weaving trained as an interior designer before moving into the fashion world and working as Display Director for Browns, Calvin Klein and Armani. He has styled and written features on retro style for Elle Decoration and Metropolitan Home and now runs a gallery, Century, in London. Century specializes in mid-century modern American design, with both originals and re-editions by Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson and Eliel Saarinen, plus work by new designers. Andrew divides his time between an early 19th-century town house furnished with pieces from the 1950s and a flat-roofed Modernist house, furnished with 1930s originals. Modern Retro is his first book.
