Talk about the ultimate moving sale. But what would you expect when the space you're moving out of was designed by Peter Marino? On October 14, auction house Christie's New York presents Forever Chic
, a curated sale featuring items from the former Madison Avenue showroom of Bruce Hoeksema's luxury accessories brand VBH. Ranging from bespoke contemporary furnishings to Pop Art and Chinese antiques, the collection is full of timeless pieces chosen with a discerning eye. Here, a look at a few of the treasures we'd happily snap up ourselves.(Gray-painted and chromed-metal seven-light chandelier, second half of 20th century, est. $4,000–$6,000. One of a group of eight American paint-decorated game boards, late 19th-early 20th century, est. $2,000–$3,000.)(For Love by James Rosenquist, from 11 Pop Artists, Volume III (G. 13), screenprint in colors, 1965, est. $800–$1,200.
