The finest works of 20th and 21st Century design and decorative arts coming to the market as all the major auctions houses prepare a strong finish to the 2012 Spring/Summer season.
First we look at Sotheby's Paris auction: Arts Décoratifs du XXe Siècle & Design Contemporain. These are my favorite picks:
A gilded wrought iron wall mirror and cabinet, both by Elizabeth Garouste.
70s ultra glam desk and console in brass, copper and lacquer, both by Serge Manzon.
A PK61 marble coffee table and leather PK33 stools, both by Poul Kjaerholm.
A slick black talosel and black glass wall mirror by Line Vautrin.
An industrial chic Potence lamp by Jean Prouve.
A fine oak daybed by Charlotte Perriand.
A sculptural ceiling lamp with reflective shade by Angelo Lelli for Arredoluce.
A Tertiaire floor lamp by Jacques Mizrahi.
Auction takes place June 6th. See the full preview here.
