The most expensive floor lamp ever?

leave a comment »

$ 185,925 – this is the price fetched at the 16 February Artcurial auction by an interior lamppost similar to the ones in La Cité Radieuse in Marseilles and Villa Shodan in Ahmedabad.

Overall the Artcurial sale that we mentioned in our earlier post, sold pretty well in the current context, with 80% of the lots sold (for the furniture) and several pieces going well well above the estimate. The lightings went for very high hammer prices, which seems justified given how unique they are.

A link to the catalog is here.
