Favorite Picks: Wright: Scandinavian Design

. Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Some of the finest examples of Scandinavian modernism are coming to market at Wright's upcoming May 12th auction, Scandinavian Design. These are my favorite picks:

A lyrical Paavo Tynell chandelier.

A Borge Mogensen cabinet in teak and brass.

A Hans Wegner foldable chaise.

A set of 6 leather PK 6 chairs by Poul Kjaerholm.

A lounge chair by Preben Fabricius and Jorgen Kastholm.

Rare Scimitar chairs chairs also by Preben Fabricius and Jorgen Kastholm.

A pair of adjustable brass chandeliers by Bertil Brisborg.

A rare segmented lounge chair by Poul Volther.

I always look with great interest to Wright auctions, they have flair and choice. And I would like to ask: do you ever come back and look at the results, to check what has been over or under estimated? I do. This time I found striking this Finn Juhl piece: http://www.wright20.com/auctions/view/LN57/LN58/222/LA/none/L430/0
And besides, also beautiful pieces not sold. Lessons learned?

Of course. In my business, research is everything and auction results are one of the many tools in the trade.
