DC Hillier

After getting his Masters in Clinical Psychology, DC Hillier made the leap into Art School where he earned his degree in film studies. It was while at Art School DC enrolled in several design courses and discovered a growing interest to the world of design and architecture. It was at this time DC began collecting. Needing furniture and being a poor student DC would hit the thrifts, charity shops, and even the occasional roadside pile and dumpster to rescue pieces. These broken pieces of furniture, which he would restore were, more often than not, items designed in the 1950’s and 1960’s and from there a love of MCM deign was born.

DC began studying this period of design and upon graduating from art school with a degree in film studies he was also now educated in the world of Mid Century Modern and International Modernist design.

As well as working as an interior designer, DC has remains an ardent collector with a focus on specific styles and eras.  With his knowledge and expertise of the period he has given talks on Modernism, consulted on several publications, and sits on the Collections Committee of the Design Exchange, Canada design museum. However, DC can still sometimes be found waste-deep in a dumpster should something catch his eye!
