Chateau de Gourdon

For those of you that follow me on Facebook and Twitter you know that I am in Paris checking out the design sales/fairs... the most important being the collection of French billionaire Laurent Nego: Chateau de Gourdon at Christie's. I have been to the exhibition twice and plan to go once more before the sale next week. It is encyclopedic to say the least with many rare and oft unique pieces by Pierre Legrain, Eileen Gray, Ruhlmann, Jean Dunand, Rene Herbst.... you get the picture. The quality and volume are astounding and while I pride myself on offering you a balanced mix of art history, market analysis and a dash of snark I leave you with "design porn" from the exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo. If you are in paris this weekend you must go. Longer post to follow after the sale.
