Top interior designer Kelly Wearstler is famed for her eclectic style which has found favor with Hollywood and New York alike. A bit of Wearstler’s excellent taste is on the block through online auction house Paddle8.
Kelly Wearstler: Curiosities is an auction of design, art, vintage fashion, and jewelry featuring Wearstler’s bold mix of graphic patterns, Hollywood glamour, Surrealism, and natural materials. The items are a mix of classic and modern, from a 1975 Alexander Calder exhibition catalogue to a pair of ribbon chairs by Leonardi & Stagi, from a gold Victorian locket to a vintage Gucci scarf and design and fashion from Wearstler’s own lines.
Highlights include a Fabio Lenci glass and leather chair (estimate: $8,000–10,000), a Jean Paul Gaultier rare puffer jacket (estimate: $800–1,200), a Kelly Wearstler dichotomy table (estimate: $10,000–15,000), and a Kelly Wearstler pyrite and bronze bauble box (estimate: $4,000–6,000). Each Wearstler box is handcrafted by artisans in Los Angeles with stones and minerals personally selected by Kelly during her travels.
The auction is co-organized by Whitewall Magazine, which will feature Wearstler in its winter issue. The bidding opens on Wednesday, November 6 at 10 AM EST, and closes Wednesday, November 13 at 6 PM EST at paddle8.com/auctions/wearstler.
