Andrew Ogletree, Specialist, English Furniture and Csongor Kis, Specialist, French & Continental Furniture, note, “It is with great enthusiasm that Sotheby’s opens its doors to this group of talented designers. There is a natural partnership that exists between the designer of a space and fine and decorative arts. We look forward to seeing how each designer integrates these objects, ranging in age from the 16th century to the present day, in chic and livable room settings that will offer a fresh perspective on the depth and breadth of what Sotheby’s has to offer. To that end, we would like to show that these objects regardless of age or style can be incorporated into a modern lifestyle and be appreciated by today’s collectors.”
