Looking to update your collection of mid-century classics? You need to make a note of 4th March 2008 – that’s the date of the Modern Design auction at Christies in South Kensington, London.

Name your favourite designer of the modern period and there’s more than a good chance of them being represented here. Although the cost of that Eames / Jacobsen / Nelson / Aalto / Knoll / Panton item might not suit your current budget. Take our advice and get on something affordable, with the potential to rise in the coming years. Like this John & Sylvia Reid dining suite, made for Stag Furniture in 1959. It’s down as £500 – £800 – get it at the lower end and it’s a great price for what you get.

Failing that, browse the auction lots online to see how past investments are shaping up.
