Saffronart does vintage
Ahead of Saffronart’s e-auction, we bring you our top 11 period picks
It’s safe to say that vintage furniture will always be on trend. Naturally, we loved what we saw over at Saffronart HQ ahead of its two-day online auction comprising art deco lights, cabinets and lounge chairs, among other collectibles.
You can view the collection at Saffronart’s Mumbai and Delhi galleries. Or, like us, you could indulge in some armchair-shopping by checking out the catalogue online, and placing your bids via the website between March 25-26.
Sift through a curated selection of about 109 pieces from India and abroad. We loved the teakwood campaign desk (estimated value Rs 1,24,000) and the art deco ‘Aeroplane’ tea set (estimated between Rs 25,000 – 35,000). Browse through the slideshow to see the rest of our wish list.
