A collection of one off pieces from The Ernest Race Heritage Collection re-imagined by Jay Blades. 

The Modern Restorer - Jay Blades has relished the opportunity to work with such acclaimed mid-century British designs and has re-imagined a selection of pieces from the collection. 

Jay Blades is the former co-founder of award winning social enterprise, Out of the Dark. With his no nonsense attitude to upcycling furniture, he has become the nation's inspiration for transforming dusty old furniture into works of art.  

The proceeds from this auction will go towards a cause set up by Jay Blades that helps to engage disadvantaged youths through training and apprenticeships within the furniture industry. In association with Race Furniture and Ocee Design. 

A selection of the auction pieces will be on show at Clerkenwell Design Week - 21st to 23rd May. Bidding closes on the 23rd May - 7pm

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
