A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

French Provencal Louis XV Lovliness

December 09 UPDATE: After discussing this furniture with Christie's, Wright20, and several other auction houses and furniture dealers, though you can't fault me for trying and spending significant time doing so, you can begin laughing at me. This stuff is of value, but not as valuable as I had thought. The exception being the bedroom stuff, which has generated a great deal of collector and auction house interest. So head into Jubilee this weekend and some of it will be priced.

Jubilee Furniture just got a donation beyond anything they've ever seen. I'm a mid century modern furniture and decorative arts collector, and although French Provencal Louis XV style furniture is like a foreign language to me, it does not take a genius to understand how special this donation really is.

So I spent several hours taking photos (as I have done several times in the past) of this amazing furniture on Saturday afternoon. Love taking photos, I love everyone at Jubilee, and I love furniture (especially Time Life Chairs by Charles Eames for Herman Miller), so this was a great day.

I am currently in the process of communicating with a few choice auction houses for their assistance. If you can help me identify these pieces, I and Jubilee would really appreciate it.

While I was at Jubilee I shot several more pieces from their very stocked showroom. Below are both galleries.
