I’ve spoken about Irish designer Eileen Gray here before. Saw the extensive exhibition of her life’s work in Collins Barracks a few times. Bought a huge book of her work in Prague, of all places, last year.
Then this morning:
this chair, the Fauteuil aux Dragons
has sold for €22m.
One chair, even if it is one of her most beautiful…
Admittedly it used to belong to Yves Saint Laurent which probably pushed the price up a bit.
I’d just like to sit in it for a bit.
