Interior Designer Sasha Bikoff Shops Prints and Photographs

Launch Slideshow

New York City interior designer Sasha Bikoff's sharp eye for art is unsurprising, having studied Fine Arts and Art History while attending college in Washington D.C. and Paris and having worked at Chelsea's Gagosian Gallery prior to starting her namesake firm. "I truly believe that a home is not complete without wall hangings," she says. "Prints and photographs are extremely important to my craft as you are constantly needing to build up a space as you would if you were painting a canvas, layering the pigments of paint. Something I love doing with prints and photographs is to create a gallery wall of pieces with various style frames and sizes. I also love to put smaller works on shelves amongst books and objects." We asked Bikoff to shop the upcoming online auctions Exceptional Exposures: 20th Century Photographs Online and Prints & Multiples Online for her favourites. –Alexandra Owens

Interior Designer Sasha Bikoff Shops Prints and Photographs

  • Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Couverture de L'Estampe Originale. Estimate $8,000–10,000.
    "The subject matter in this piece is whimsical and imaginative. It's all about mixing the old and the new to create an eclectic environment. Regardless of its age, this work is playful and fresh and sure to make a theatrical splash on the wall."

  • Robert Mapplethorpe, Orchid. Estimate $5,000–7,000.
    "This Mapplethorpe photograph is so intensely beautiful and is layered with a great amount of depth and symbolism. You can feel the darkness of the artist, the underlying sexual tones between the orchids, the vase and the different shades of grey. It's striking."

  • Pablo Picasso, Sujet poisson (Alain Ramié 139). Estimate $3,000–5,000.
    "I am attracted to anything that is in the shape of a fish, so this Picasso piece immediately appealed to me. I love decorating shelves and table tops with objects for added layer and texture. This is the ultimate conversation piece and a special little gem for any collection."

  • Robert Mapplethorpe, Lily. Estimate $10,000–15,000.
    "Clearly I am a big Mapplethorpe fan. As an interior designer I am immediately drawn to this photograph, as the flower is so luscious it almost reminds me of silk velvet with a ruffled trim. This piece has this glowing, dark, romantic appeal and belongs in a bedroom somewhere by a window."

  • Henri Matisse, L'Idole (Duthuit 393). Estimate $4,000–6,000.
    "For me, the nude is the greatest subject matter of all time. This one is particularly beautiful because of its simplicity and effortless attention to line."

  • Lucien Clergue, Selected Nudes. Estimate $5,000–7,000.
    "These two photographs are all about this texture play between the rippling of the water, the satin skin and the lovely patterns the water makes on the skin. It's capturing a quick moment in time and making these small yet defining moments last."

  • Takashi Murakami, Jelly Fish Eyes (Two Prints). Estimate $3,000–5,000.
    "Apart from the wildly intriguing subject matter, what really drew me to this diptych was the colour. The juxtaposition between the peachy nude against the emerald jade eyes is really striking and a great way to incorporate colour into your home."

  • Edward Weston, Shell. Estimate $5,000–7,000.
    "I absolutely love shells – especially this one as Weston intended to artfully intrigue the viewer, allowing the shell to take on different more female bodily form. I will never look at a shell the same way!"

  • Andy Warhol, $ (9) (see F. & S. II.285 – 286). Estimate $80,000–120,000.
    "I very much appreciate iconographic imagery that holds a great deal of importance in history, and that's exactly what this piece is to me. It's probably one of the most recognizable symbols in the world and to have Andy Warhol's artful take on the dollar sign is literally owning a piece of history."

  • Danny Lyon, 1RT 2 NYC (Subway). Estimate $5,000–7,000.
    "1980s New York City was so raw, and this depiction of its subways compared to what we see now is exhilarating. Photographs like this really bring you back in time."
