Shifting generational tastes, desire to create highly personal spaces, and concerns about sustainability and the environment are driving demand for antique, vintage and classic design. Our new sale series Classic Design Week – encompassing European furniture, clocks, silver, ceramics and objects of vertu – showcases over 500 years of craftsmanship. The signature Classic Design auction offers the finest examples in each collecting category, while the Design 17/20 auction is defined by a worldly exploration of design across the centuries. Classic Design Weeks are held biannually in London, Paris and New York. This season we are partnering with British textile brand, Christopher Farr. With a focus on art, design, and making, Christopher Farr is underpinned by a commitment to the finest materials, craftsmanship, and innovative collaborations with artists and designers around the world. This spring, their exclusive wall coverings and rugs, created in collaboration with the estates of Bauhaus artists and weavers Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl, will form the backdrop of our global exhibitions, juxtaposing 17th-19th century furniture and decorative arts with the modernist aesthetic.
