The May Decorative Arts & Design sales in Paris set several world auction records, achieving a total of €5 million for the day and evening sessions.
Six lots were sold above €200,000, and two above €400,000. Highlights included an 'En Forme' ash and aluminium desk by Charlotte Perriand, which reached €409,500.
The day sale reached €756,700, twice its initial estimate, led by exceptional lightings such as a glass and brass ceiling light by Fontana Arte, which sold for €47,100.
Following the success of these sales, we are currently inviting consignments to the upcoming auction.
