NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s, in partnership with their 1744 Young Collectors Club, present a Designer Showhouse from 24 – 28 March 2014 where six innovative and inspired interior designers curate a room on the sixth floor exhibition space of Sotheby's Manhattan headquarters.

Each space, ranging from a bedroom to a living room, dining room or library evokes the designer’s unique aesthetic, and comprises items from Sotheby’s upcoming spring auctions including English & Continental furniture, 20th century design, Contemporary and Impressionist prints, African and European sculpture, carpets, Old Master paintings, ceramics and silver. Sotheby’s invited interior designers and firms with a broad range of artistic approaches and experience, including Ryan Korban, known for his retail design including Alexander Wang’s flagship store, Balenciaga’s men’s and women’s flagship stores and Fivestory New York; McMillen Inc., the oldest full service interior design and decorating firm in America; Daun Curry from Modern Declaration, named one of Vogue’s hottest new designers; New York design duo Catherine Casteel Olasky and Maximilian P. Sinsteden from Olasky & Sinsteden whose collective background includes time working for renowned names including Bunny Williams, Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, David Easton Inc., Charlotte Moss; Shaler Ladd of Shaler Ladd Design Corporation who has built his business by providing exceptional service and quality to a loyal client base for which he curates interiors tailored to the distinct lifestyle and tastes of each individual; and, Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer from WRJ Design Associates, who are heavily influenced by European styles and extensive knowledge of art, design, antiques and architecture. Held at our York Avenue headquarters in New York, the exhibition is open to the public from 10am to 5pm.

Andrew Ogletree, Specialist, English Furniture and Csongor Kis, Specialist, French & Continental Furniture, note, “It is with great enthusiasm that Sotheby’s opens its doors to this group of talented designers. There is a natural partnership that exists between the designer of a space and fine and decorative arts. We look forward to seeing how each designer integrates these objects, ranging in age from the 16th century to the present day, in chic and livable room settings that will offer a fresh perspective on the depth and breadth of what Sotheby’s has to offer. To that end, we would like to show that these objects regardless of age or style can be incorporated into a modern lifestyle and be appreciated by today’s collectors.”
