The Modern Interiors Sale on Saturday 2nd June will comprise 189 lots of affordable, design-led interior pieces with the main estates being consigned from stylish London homes.

Items removed from an apartment in Hyde Park Gardens include a bespoke billiard/dining table by Sir William Bentley, A Pair of Italian Brown Leather Tub Shaped Armchairs, labelled Moroso, and stylish glass top tables. The highlight from this estate is sure to be the impressive French Art Deco Style Refectory Style Dining Table by Maison Dominique.  It is sold with twelve dining chairs and accompanied by a copy of the purchase receipt from Makassar-France, who represents the most innovative artists and designers from the Art Deco period to modern day. The design house Dominique, was founded in 1922 by Andre Domin and Marcel Genevriere, whose early work is said to have been influenced by Cubism.  This table is indicative of this period, with a large geometric square pattern across the table top and plated metal stretchers. 

From another private client in London comes an impressive Egyptian Revival Burr Maple, Ebony and Gilt Metal Mounted suite. Sold as individual lots, it comprises a dining table and eight chairs, a sideboard, an over mantel mirror, a chest of drawers, a head board, a pair of armchairs, a pair of occasional tables, an impressive three-seater sofa and a coffee table.

Elsewhere in the sale are a good section of Danish Rosewood furniture, both stylish and functional, and an interesting section of Studio Pottery.
