We can’t help but peak ahead a bit even as we’re enjoying these wonderful summer days!
There are some great shows and sales coming to Paris this fall and one that looks exciting is the Piasa sale of Contemporary Chinese Design in October.
We have been intrigued by how this auction house is assembling themes sales, such and Brazilian Design or Italian design or focusing on a specific designer such as Pierluigi Ghianda or theme such as French avant-garde in the 1980s.
These sales create great learning opportunities for aspiring collectors!
Here are a few of the highlights for the sale in October. The official catalogue will be out mid September and the sale is 25 October.
