Vice President, Division Director, Decorative Arts & Head of Department, Design
Tim Andreadis serves as Head of Freeman's 20th Century Design department. His areas of specialty include studio and contemporary craft, post-war and pre-war design.
Mr. Andreadis joined Freeman's in 2013. Prior to joining Freeman’s, Andreadis was a 20th century design specialist at another prominent east coast auction house and has also worked as a private dealer. Within the short time Mr. Andreadis has been with Freeman's, he has brought key works of 20th century and midcentury modern design to market, including important examples by Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Paul Evans, and Finn Juhl. In addition to Freeman’s bi-annual 20th Century Design sales, Andreadis oversees Freeman’s annual Pennsylvania Sale, which celebrates artists from the region including Samuel Yellin, Harry Bertoia, Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Paul Evans, and Phillip Lloyd Powell.
Mr. Andreadis is a graduate of Dartmouth College and also holds an MA from the University of Delaware’s Winterthur Program in American Material Culture. He has written and lectured on 20th century design and is an active member of the Society of Winterthur Fellows, the Decorative Arts Trust, the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, and American Institute for Conservation of Art and Historic Works. Andreadis splits his time between Philadelphia and his home in Carversville, Pennsylvania, just a short distance from the Nakashima studio in New Hope. Mr. Andreadis considers his work to be his passion, and his love of 20th century design extends far beyond the doors of Freeman's.
