A LATE LOUIS XV GILTWOOD TABOURET
MORNING SESSION Tuesday 7 June 2011 10:00 am (Lots 201-402) FRENCH CLASSICISM: SELECTIONS FROM THE PRIVATE COLLECTION OF MICHAEL SIMON (Lots 201-234) Meticulous attention to detail, exquisite craftsmanship and beautifully selected fabrics are all hallmarks of Michael Simon's professional work as an interior designer. It is therefore no surprise that the same qualities characterize the pieces from his private collection being offered in this sale. Acclaimed for his knowledge of 18th-century French decorative arts, the New York-based designer Michael Simon has created exquisite interiors for clients across the United States and overseas. His superb designs for private residences have been featured in The New York Times, Architectural Digest, House & Garden and numerous other publications both here and abroad. He has also served as a consultant to such important historic restoration projects as the Morris-Jumel Mansion (Manhattan's oldest residence) and the bedroom suite of Edith Wharton's The Mount. While Mr. Simon remains extremely fond of the works under consignment, he is editing his collection and will continue to assemble a diverse range of decorative art. Christie's is proud to offer this exceptional opportunity for collectors to acquire works that have met Mr. Simon's exacting personal taste.
