Welcome to Sotheby’s second annual Contemporary Living auction! We invite you to explore and inquire about this unique combination of 20th and 21st century art and design, and hope that you will join us in our New York galleries from July 23-28 for this exciting exhibition and sale.
Sotheby’s would like to thank interior designer Fernando Santangelo for creating the vignettes featured above and throughout our Contemporary Living catalogue. Hailing from Montevideo, Uruguay, Mr. Santangelo established his New York City based design firm, Fernando Santangelo Inc., in 1995 after successfully redesigning the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles for hotelier André Balazs. Mr. Santangelo’s thoughtful approach to color, placement and proportion explores the way in which inanimate objects can enliven and enrich our lives, and Sotheby’s is pleased to offer a glimpse of his command of visual juxtaposition in this catalogue.
We hope you will find pieces to delight and inspire your daily environments at price points for every collector.
