Eileen Gray’s Chair Fetches Record $28 Million at Christie’s

French furniture is known for its woody charm and rustic elegance. If you know about French culture, you would know how important Yves Saint Laurent’s place is, in French culture. An iconic chair owned by this great maestro was auctioned off at the Christie’s in Paris. Would you guess how much it garnered in the auction? An amazing $28 million. This is apparently the most expensive 20th century design ever.

It was designed by Eileen Gray who was a French artist during 1917 and 1919. It comes with beautiful brown leather and sculpted wooden frame which would look perfect in a French Chateau in the middle of Burgundy. In fact, imagine the situation of sitting on this chair, surrounded by French paintings, and some lovely chansons.

Next you would dig into some of the choicest fondue and wine while fire crackles in front of you. I would love to have one of these at any cost and it is a shame I can’t afford it.
