The 20th Century Decorative Art and Design department sells a range of property including furniture, lighting, ceramics and sculpture from the Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, Modernist and Contemporary movements. With more than three decades of sales, the department maintains a strong hold of global market share in 20th Century Design and boasts impressive auction records and unrivalled scholarship with each sale, in turn earning the trust and confidence of consignors.
Christie’s holds important sales of 20th Century Decorative Art & Design twice annually in New York (June and December), Paris (May and November) and London (April and October). In May 2014, Paris will launch the inaugural Design sale. Additionally, specialized sales are held for Lalique (S. Kensington) and Tiffany Studios (New York) along with several off-season sales for each auction location.
