LAMA Modern Art and Design Auction

The LAMA Modern Art and Design auction starts at noon Pacific time on May 6, offering stunning pieces that most of us would love to have in our homes if we had a chest full of money buried in the backyard. (I'm giving you a day's heads-up, in case you need to start digging.)

In addition to fine art and sculpture by artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and Ed Ruscha, I found furniture and ceramics that went straight to my To Die For list. Take a look and see if you don't agree.

We already have several pieces similar to other auction items, but they aren't in the store yet, because they're being restored. Here are the auction pieces. Stay tuned to see ours when they're ready.

    1. I love his benches and tables too. Such natural ruggedness, yet so refined.

    2. I only just Googled George Nakishima now. Totally same idea as the tables I saw last week at the Market. So simple and elegant, highlighting the raw materials and not the man made fabric and other materials that are so common

    3. When I saw your post about the tables at the Market, I figured you'd admire Nakashima's work.
