Christie’s Interiors auction in London


Want to kit your home out in some classic 20th century design? You need to head for the Christie's Interiors auction in London, which takes place at the South Kensington site in London in 8th February 2011.

In truth, there are items going through the centuries, both antique and fairly recent, but it's the midcentury items that have caught our eye. This Ernst Igl Hadi desk is one such design. From 1971, this space age gem was produced by Bayer in moulded polyurethane, with storage and lighting built-in.

Not too expensive either really, £800 – £1,200 is the estimate. Check out the site to register to bid or see all the lots.
