The sale comprised nearly 500 lots, pulled from six California collections assembled by legends of interior design: Kalef Alaton, Craig Wright, Henrix Allardyce, Therien & Company, Inc., Steven Volpe and James Lumsden. Luxuriously upholstered chairs, elegant occasional tables, Chinoiserie decoration, fine art selections and exquisite objects struck a chord with bidders.
"We seem to have turned back the clock to a time when richly appointed interiors were the paradigm," said Andrew Jones, president and CEO of Andrew Jones Auctions. "It was exciting to see so many decorators, collectors and grand millennials – many of them new clients – battle for each lot. It's a great shot in the arm for traditional quality works with important provenance."
A busy three-day preview in a gorgeously presented gallery led to a packed room on auction day with over 100 in-room clients, a full bank of phone bidders and two active online platforms bringing in buyers from around the world. Approximately 2,500 people registered to bid online.
