Lambertville, NJ – On Friday, December 2 at 2pm, Rago premieres Remix – an auction dedicated to the belief that the most livable and interesting rooms can’t be pinned to a decade or design period. To prove it, Rago has curated a mix of contemporary design with everything from Rococo to Anglo-Indian and Americana.
“Every great designer aspires to compose a room with pieces that create the impression of having been collected over time,” says Arlen Sam Brown, Rago’s stylist and the specialist in charge of Remix, “When objects really shouldn’t communicate well, but do, it’s like a group of fascinating people brought together for a great dinner party. That’s ReMix.”
Rago has filled the sale with sexy, stylish pieces of modern design, urbane antiques, heirlooms, contemporary and classical art and shown how well they mix. Find your design personality: Modern/Rococo, Modern/Louis, Modern/Rustic, Modern/Uncommon, Modern/Nouveau, Modern/World Culture, Modern/Classic or a remix all your own.
Highlights include: Malcolm Bray, Picture This, painted Louis XV style circa 1855 over-mantel mirror, USA, 2014; Set of twelve midcentury dining chairs, France; Pair of Eames Screens, mid 20th c.; Pair of Italian lounge chairs and ottomans, mid 20th c.; and several designs by Joan Busquets from the private collection of art dealer, Allan Stone.
“Join us in disregarding the idea that market economics measures the value of an object,” says Gina Tomasello, the Remix Jr. Specialist, “Style is what you choose.”
