Christies 20th Century Decorative Art and Design auction in London


We suspect the price of design just might take a dip in this troubling economic climate, so you might just might find a bargain or two at the Christies 20th Century Decorative Art and Design auction on March 25th 2009.

The auction really is a who's who of modern design, including the likes of Georg Jensen, Ettore Sottsass, Charles & Ray Eames, Gio Ponti, Arne Jacobsen, Marcel Breuer, Charlotte, Perriand, George Nelson  Alvar Aalto, Verner Panton and many more besides. Indeed, if you have a spare few minutes, it's well worth browsing the online catalogue.

We did just that and spotted this stunning Merrow Associates dining table down in the depths. A superb example of the British design firm's work from 1970, it offers up six upholstered chairs, chrome frames and a stunning rosewood top. If you want a table to last, this is well worth the £2,000 - £3,000 asking price.

If you want to bid or just go along, the sale is at the Kensington sales room (85 Old Brompton Road), commencing at 10:30am.
