New York – On October 14, Christie’s New York will present a curated design sale, Forever Chic, which will celebrate timeless style from modern luxury to the enduring appeal of the ancient. This innovative auction will encompass inspiring lighting, furniture, one-off design pieces, sculpture, Chinese works of art, pop-art and antiquities. With something for everyone, estimates range from $800 to $150,000 and the sale is expected to realize in excess of $1.5 million.
Forever Chic is led by a collection of modern design and bespoke furnishings from the Peter Marino-designed interior of the former Madison Avenue showroom of Bruce Hoeksema’s luxury brand, VBH. Highlights from the collection include a unique sculpture by Alexandre Noll, circa 1963-65 (estimate: $50,000-80,000) and a gilt-iron and travertine console table designed by Jean Royere (estimate: $40,000-60,000).
