An incredible single-owner collection will be offered in Sotheby's upcoming auction A Mid-Century Eye: The Collection of Colleen Sullivan. Single-owner sales are a favorite of mine as all the pieces work together, having been collected over the years with personal taste and a single vision. Coming together in this sale are lyrical and graceful works from some of the greatest designers of the Modern Movement. These are my favorite picks:
A Gino Sarfatti spiraling brass chandelier.
A biomorphic coffee table by Jean Royere and a freeform sculpture by Georges Jouve.
An amazing Persane
multi-armed sconce also by Jean Royere.
A pair of Franco Albini lounge chairs.
The Grasshopper chaise lounge and an incredible rosewood dining table, both by Fabricius and Kastholm.
A custom cabinet by Ico and Louisa Parisi.
Folded metal sconces by Boris Lacroix.
Serge Mouille's Saturn wall light.
A brass and glass floor lamp by Pietro Chiesa.
The auction takes place September 21th, see the full preview at Sotheby's.
