NEW YORK, NY -- Summer is soon coming to a close, and the final auction of the season is now open at Hayloft Auctions. Browse the sale and be inspired! Reimagine, reinvent and repurpose the offerings in new and creative ways in your own home – an end-of-season makeover just in time for fall!
If you are looking for interesting furniture with a point of view, the sale does not disappoint. For the bibliophile, there are two revolving bookcases certain to intrigue everyone with their mechanical convenience (lot 325, lot 376). A metal and wood dictionary stand will add Steampunk style to any kitchen when put to use with a cookbook collection (lot 334). Looking for a plant stand for the world traveler? A George III style planter evokes an antique globe used by explorers of yore (lot 400). And how about mahogany spiral library steps reimagined as a plant stand for multiple pots (lot 437). When it’s displayed alongside a miniature spiral staircase model (lot 186), your guests will surely be amused. The tight space of an urban apartment shouldn’t be an issue when entertaining if you use clever drop-leaf pieces that convert into useful buffet or bar surfaces (lot 137, lot 187).
Pleasant summer evenings are the perfect time for informal gatherings, so delight your guests with cold drinks served in colorful glassware that echoes the intense hues of the season. The sale offers sets of glassware in vivid green (lot 16), sunny amber (lot 54), and deep purple (lot 254), in addition to more traditional clear examples by Baccarat, Waterford, Steuben, Galway and Orrefors.
If your entertaining revolves around food, why not serve breakfast on a cheerful floral porcelain breakfast service by Georg Jensen (lot 111) or an alfresco lunch on a Franciscan ceramic service decorated with painted apples (lot 98). How about afternoon tea using a delicate Japanese porcelain tea service (lot 160). And impress your guests at a formal dinner with elegant porcelain service plates by Limoges embellished with floral wreaths (lot 404).
Each monthly sale at Hayloft Auctions offers a unique blend of property, and the current sale is exceptionally rich in art, with over 100 lots of paintings and prints. New collectors and seasoned buyers alike will find works to suit all tastes, from Old Masters to Contemporary paintings by artists spanning the globe. Hang a 19th century bucolic village view (lot 156) or a wintry landscape by German artist Otto Schulze (lot 272) in your city apartment for an instant escape to the country. A Chinese ancestral portrait of a lady (lot 82) and a Dutch Old Master style portrait of a gentleman (lot 208) provide fascinating insights into how we wish to be portrayed. An armchair traveler might enjoy a view of the Bay of Naples (lot 198) or Montmartre in Paris (lot 225). Certain to attract attention are works by Bernard Buffet (lot 123), Philippine artist Romeo Tabuena (lot 364) and Contemporary New York artists Sam Reveles (lot 266) and Angela Dufresne (lot 99), among so many others.
