When I am looking for something extraordinary and of great quality for my projects, one of the first places I look are the upcoming auctions at Phillips. On April 29th, Phillips in London is having a "Design" auction consisting of exceptional offerings of furniture, lighting and objet from important designers of the 20th century. The items below are just a small assortment of the incredible pieces that make up the auction.
