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.
Now let's look to Chicago for Wright's forthcoming Important Design auction. These are my favorite picks:

Gino Sarfatti's Moon 69 lamp and a rare Model 539 lamp with beanbag base.
A superb set of Art Deco Rodeo Circus bookends by Russell Wright.
A glamorous stainless steel Diapason desk by Marzio Cecchi.

A rare set of No. 4 chairs and a Compass desk, both by Jean Prouve.

Solid walnut Kornblut nightstands by George Nakashima.
A selection of sculptures by Harry Bertoia.
