$27.8 Million Dollar Chair-They Don't Make Them Like They Used To. : Howards Custom Upholstery

$27.8 Million Dollar Chair-They Don't Make Them Like They Used To.

by Tavy at Howard's on 03/23/11

Check out this chair. This expensive armchair belonged to a Paris-based art dealer before finding its way into the hands of Yves Saint Laurent, founder of the eponymous YSL luxury brand. Reportedly, that very same art dealer is the person who paid ten times the chair's estimated value to procure it at a Chrisities auction. The chair was made by Irish designer Eileen Graw sometime between 1917 and 1919. Called the "Dragon's Chair, it is one of Gray's Masterpieces.  We always say older furniture was more valuable and made with right stuff, but this chair breaks the mold.
