From original Icart etchings to 200-year-old dining tables ideal for entertaining in style — 5 experts reveal what they’d take home from our Interiors sale on August 17
Lisa Johnson, Contributing Editor, Christie’s Interiors: ‘I love the humour in this dainty drawing, which dates from the most celebrated years of the Folies Bergère. I would hang the eight designs in a grid on a wall in my daughter’s bedroom.’
Lily Faber, Furniture and Works of Art specialist: ‘This table is rustic in feel and appearance with just the right amount of wear. It would be the perfect table to gather around for a nice, hearty meal, complete with crusty bread.’
Mark Stephen, Works of Art specialist: ‘Ideal for a contemporary interior, this French baker’s rack could be used as a display stand in a conservatory, hall, or anywhere else in the house. It’s typical of the type of antique that appeals to the decorator market’.
Fiona Baker, 20th Century Works of Art specialist: ‘Icart’s etchings always depict elegant women, often with a touch of humour.’
Hannah Banting, Producer: ‘This is a really good piece of old furniture and still very usable. It would be great for a game of backgammon with a friend.’
