On One Kings Lane: Howard Slatkin


 You are in for a treat November 2-this coming Saturday. Howard Slatkin will be having a Tastemaker Tag Sale on One Kings Lane to benefit three Charities. I've had a peak at everything-and I can not tell you what wonders await! Lucky for everyone-we have a preview today.
Howard is also on Pinterest and he has a board devoted to pieces in the Sale here.

 I asked Howard to select a few must have books for a design library from the many incredible ones included in the Sale.

 Books included in the Sale on November 2

 "There are so many of the books I do consider “must haves” for the library of anyone who loves beauty and the decorative arts-------and design in general:"

The Wrightsman Collection – these volumes of the legendary collection show the discerning eye of one of the great collectors of the 20th century.

 Furniture of Versailles – this two volume set detail the extraordinary designs and craftsmanship of 18th century France----quite mad & wild compared to the tame designs of today!

  Alexandre Serebriakoff – the room renderings of this extraordinary Russian artist captured interiors in the mid twentieth century----and the lives lived in them------that are now gone, such as the chateau de Groussay.

The Wirtz Gardens - a three volume set recording the gardens of Jacques Wirtz, who I have collaborated with on a few products.  The great garden designer of our time.

JAR – this rare first edition of his fabled book shows in beautiful photos the works of Joel Rosenthal-----the Cellini of our time.  His use of color is inspirational. 

 & for the most exquisite table?
Howard has included some of his beautiful porcelain and linens in the Sale.

I am loving some of these pieces- and though it is hard to pick just one or two, I'm narrowing down my choices. There are wonderful cache pot and votives (some of my favorite pieces in the Sale), and glorious photophores. Howard's new book Fifth Avenue Style will be available in the Sale-and some of the photographs in the book are highlighted below to inspire you & Howard's put together pieces from the Sale for your inspiration too.
