UNDER THE HAMMER



 

$33.7 million


  is the price of the now most expensive rug but also piece of furniture in the world. The 17th C Clark Sickle-Leaf Persian rug sold at the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s carpet and rug auction held by Sotheby’s in New York City this week.

  It therefore knocks off the c.1917 Eileen Gray “Dragons” chair that belonged to Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé which sold for $27.8 million at the 2009 Christie’s auction.




What recession?!
