Mrs. B at AD - All Wright


Last month I attended the Italian Masterworks and Important Design auctions at Wright in Chicago.  As I anticipated it was something of an adventure, at least for someone like me who loves picking the brains of creative people about process.  Richard Wright and I talked uncharted career paths, modern design, living with young sons and the impossibility of the Death Star Lego set.

As these things sometimes do, being there made me want dip into their world a little bit.  As I watched Mr. Wright's associates take bids over the phone, I wanted to feel the receiver pressed to my ear, hear the excitement, or frustration, of the collector yearning to capture his heart's desire.

Hi Patricia, I don't quite yet have a passion for modern design, but I do carry some pieces. This is a fantastic view of what is happening behind the scenes at auction houses. To see the Legera chairs going for that amount when I had a pair just our of college (bought because they were all I could afford) --stunning.
Happy New Year!!
Mary
