Successful interior design marries room functionality with beauty, and ideally provides a haven for inhabitants. It also tells a story of the inhabitants through the placement and selection of objects. It is no wonder that harmonizing such designs can be a daunting task, but Doyle’s September auction, Doyle at Home is an amazing opportunity for interior designers and casual buyers alike to own one-of-a-kind, tasteful pieces and form their own personal narratives.
If a home is a sanctuary, a pair of George Smith velvet-upholstered sofas would surely compliment this intention and offer much needed respite from a busy modern world. As auction highlights, their gorgeous seafoam green hue and buttery softness made in workshops in the North of England, are in excellent condition. For homes of importance, there are several carved George III pieces including an inlaid mahogany sideboard, antique pieces of Asian origin, and Victorian brass works.
For contemporary decor, there are MCM pieces like a pair of chromed leather lounge chairs by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll. Splendid decorative arts are present too, including a series of otherworldly Gallé cameo glass vases. These art nouveau pieces are instantly recognizable as cornerstones of the movement, and would be important pieces to add to many collections. Complimenting the auction are over 150 superb works of art, including a very fine late Victorian depiction of two children attributed to Arthur J. Elsley.
The impeccably curated catalogue was gathered from collectors and estates from across the country. As a trusted source for professionals, Doyle provides a wonderful opportunity to furnish a living space. And with beginning bids ranging from $50-$3,000, this is an excellent chance to complete home decor within a variety of budgets. For the full catalog and to register to bid go to Doyle.
