It feels like there have been so many auctions of exquisite collections in the last few years. It makes me feel sad to see them be broken up but hopefully the furniture and objects end up going to good homes. Susan Gutfreund sold her Henri Samuel decorated duplex apartment at 834 Fifth Avenue last year and now some of the best pieces from it are for sale at Christie’s. I toured the preview today and it was interesting to see everything out in the open. You can see my photos from Christie’s in my Instagram Stories. Some of the items will be in the live auction and others already have bid in the online auction. I especially loved the green Winter Garden room when I visited the apartment for a party in 2018. I don’t think I’ll be able to afford anything but it’s fun to dream.
