A Louis XV fauteuil stamped C. Sene. Est. 8,000 - 12,000 EUR. Image from Sotheby's.
It is no secret to my close friends that I am absolutely obsessed with auctions. For me it's not simply about the thrill of the hunt, but rather seeing an individual's oeuvre first hand. With the Spring upon us, it's that time of year when almost every auction house seems to have an upcoming sale. Having just moved to Europe, I am dangerously close to the auctions of Paris and London, where some of the most exciting pieces are coming up for sale. In the coming weeks, these fascinating pieces could be yours or mine.
