Christie’s to sell collection of Les Trois Garcons restaurant March 5
The restaurant has long been a celebrity destination, for stars such as Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Grace Jones, Kate Moss, Damien Hirst, Tom Ford, Gilbert & George, Ronnie Wood and Yoko Ono.
The owners are also the proprietors of the glamorous cocktail bar Loungelover, café-come-design shop Maison Trois Garçons and the successful interior design practice L3G Design.
The auction is composed of 380 lots that come predominantly from their chateâu in the Vendée, The Chateâu de la Goujonnerie, but also includes items from their London home, as well as a small number of iconic objects selected from their thriving restaurant. Estimates range from £500 to £80,000.
The colorful interiors of the trio’s private homes are just as magnificent as the well-known interiors of their restaurant, cocktail bar and café-shop. Their daring juxtapositions and use of colour create a powerful and decadent mise-en-scène for the 21st century, which will inspire new and established collectors and interior designers. The collection includes postwar and contemporary art, 20th century design, sculpture, lighting, ceramics, soft furnishings, and garden furniture.
The sale is expected to realize in excess of £700,000.
