where did all that old prouvé junk end up?

Hum....
So, 
in true
MONDOBLOGO 
"style"
I will keep pickin' at that scab.
It the right thing to do....
Collection Privee
(That means private collection,
which means I am so rich I don't give a shit if you know who I am or not.)
Paris
1998
The "American Standard" drain cover is
a really, really, nice subtle touch...
Makes me want to order some "Freedom Fries"....

Collection Privee
Paris
1998
This is the right side of the above office.
I like everything but the grey carpet,
and the bullshit clean desk.
Don't trust anyone with a clean desk,
and this is coming from a
anal retentive Virgo.

Private Collection
San Francisco
1998
I believe this is my friend MB's old place.
Maybe not...
Where is that "Sitting on the Edge" book
when I need it?

Private Collection
New York
1998
I'll take the Basquiat please.
You know it's 1998 when you 
leave a Donna Karan bag out intentionally....

Private Collection
San Francisco
1998
Country Prouvé,
not quite as as good as a country paté.
(I know, I am missing that hatty thing for the a. Sorry.)

Collection Privee
Paris
1998
An example of this dining table sold for
$329,600.00
in 2006 at Christie's.
That Jouvé is nice too.

Privatsammlung
Hambourg
1998
Bubbles!!!!

Collection Privee
Paris
1998
You know what Parisians?
Y'all suck with the stupid high ceilings.
Even the super rich in NYC have to settle for regular ceilings.

Collection Privee
Paris
1998
More carpet. Yuck!
At least this is sisal.
I can halfway stand that unless I have to walk on it barefoot,
and then I want to kill.

Collezione Privata
Roma
1998
This would do in a pinch when in Rome.
The flowers are so 1988 that is actually hurting my eyes,
and not in a good way.

Private Collection
New York
1998
I bet this is/was:
1. Shelton, Mindel & Associates
2. Published in Architectural Digest.
You wanna bet against me?
Really? 
You are going to lose.
Those guys have been doing the same cookie-cutter rich family thang since 
at least 1998....
It is amazing 
how you can put soulful, beautiful things in a room and 
SUCK 
the life out of them.
It really is a rare talent and apparently 
EXACTLY 
what a certain type of person in NYC wants.
Was that a rant?
I think it was....

Collection Privee
Paris
1998
The African sculptures are a really nice touch.
Colonization Chic!

Boutique Karena Schuessler
Paris
1998
The library table in the back
(which was co-designed with Charlotte Perriand)
sold at Christie's
just last month for, 
wait for it...
$812,500.00
And that was below the high estimate of 900K.
:(
Tony DeLorenzo must be a WRECK!

Boutique Yohji Yamamoto
Paris
1998
Yohji, I love that name. 
If I had a small dog I would name
it Yohji.
(I would also never let it's precious feet touch the earth,
I would carry him everywhere with me.)
I think it means toothpick....
Toothpick the Dog.
Perfect!

  2. Oh I have to agree with yo about shelton and mindel. The amount of moneythey spend on their custom interiors and amazing rarities of modern design, and stil it ends up looking like everything that is wrong with american interiors. Plus they just put too many furniture pieces in their rooms . in a bad way. Not in a cool design collector way, but just in a tasteless way.
