Love Design? Don’t Miss deVere’s Auction of Classic Design, 14th October 2018

Renowned auction house deVeres is holding the second of its bi-annual modern design furniture sales this month in its gallery at 35 Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

This incredible event will feature iconic 20th Century chairs, plus Danish and Italian furniture pieces from the 1950s and ‘60s. If it’s your walls you’re hoping to find something special for, a selection of contemporary art from Albert Irwin, Pat Scott, John Cronin, Michael Farrell and Alan Davie will also be on sale.

This amazing event is a must-attend for interior fanatics and classic design fans; each piece chosen by deVere’s is of impeccable quality. Nothing will need major reupholstery work or TLC to look beautiful in your home. Another major boon? Purchases can be delivered to you the day of your bid, so there’s no waiting around. We like.

A pair of walnut two-door bedside cabinets, Italian, 1960s, on tapering legs with gilt metal feet. Estimate, €600-€900.

With 150 lots in the sale, there will be something to suit all comers. Some of our favourite pieces available on the day are:

A lounge chair and ottoman by Charles and Ray Eames
The Eames' modern take on a 19th-century club chair was originally inspired by a ‘well-used first baseman's mitt.’ An iconic (not to mention comfortable) piece.

The Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen, produced by Fritz Hansen

A pair of Wassily Chairs, by Marcel Breuer
Breuer was a student of Bauhaus, and was instrumental in the birth of Modernism. Made from tubular steel and leather straps, the chair was named after the artist Wassily Kandinsky.

A set of six Model 94 rosewood dining chairs, Danish 1960s, by Johannes Andersen

A Table for Meditation, by Pat Scott
