Christie's Auction House Hosts Interior Preview


On Monday night, Poison Ivy was humbly invited to attend an interior preview at Christie's Auction House in Rockefeller Center, which showcased over 1,110 items ranging from the antique to contemporary set.

The auction featured everything from a set of early twentieth century Louis Vuitton steamer trunks (pictured) to Japanese silk embroideries circa 1900 to a massive 1800s painting called "The Canine Concierge"  by Louis Robert Heyrault, in which a dog delivers mail to his owner dressed as a doorman.

The night also boasted a "lower price point" for consumers, which we can confirm, having seen beautiful, well-preserved Chinese armoires for under a thousand, and elegant, polka dot porcelain dinnerware for the same.

The preview was hosted by Editor in Chief of Elle Decor Margaret Russell and Christie's Interiors Department Head Ginette Lospinoso, who also helped oversee the book launch of Star Pieces: The Enduring Beauty of Spectacular Furtniture that night.

Items officially go on sale today, so check out a complete catalog and make your bids here.
