Lacroix sells up

Due to sad closure of his couture line, last week Christian Lacroix auctioned off many of the Garouste and Bonetti furniture and fittings from his salon de Haute Couture at the French Sotheby's.
I had marked a few pieces down to make a bid (in my dreams) but then missed the sale completely.
If nothing else the catalogue gives you an insight into the secret world of a Haute Couture atelier that most people will never get the opportunity to see.

Who wouldn't want their own changing room?!! so chic!!
Estimate price 2000-3000 euros
Sold for 6000euros!!
I love love love these chairs, and the fact that you get 3 blue and one coral. Would be perfect in my perfect house (which I will live in one day).
Estimate 800 - 1200euros
Sold for 5000euros!!
This chair which had an estimate of 6000 - 8000 euros ended up selling for over 19000euros!
Even the door handles were up for grabs...if you had a spare 6000euros.

See all the lots and their final prices here
