Decorating your first apartment out of college/a once happy marriage? IKEA’s got ya covered.
Looking to throw a dinner party with Champagne and caviar? You'll need something a little stronger.
Enter the Ritz Paris, a 120-year-old bastion of untempered luxury, now auctioning off 10,000 pieces the hotel no longer has room for since it finished a four-year renovation in 2016.
The auction, to be held from April 17-21, will feature a little bit of everything. Mini bars, chandeliers, barber chairs, bedside tables, even a full bathtub. (The first ever installed at the hotel, so … it’s nice and broken in?) All the pieces — from an old salon’s gold sofa set named for Marcel Proust, to Coco Chanel’s Chinese junk sailboats — have been catalogued and shined back to their former glory, and believe it or not, the 3,500 lots offered don’t (yet) carry prohibitive price estimates, ranging from just $150-6,000 dollars.
See some of the items listed for yourself. Might be time to add an armchair Papa Hemingway once napped in to your living room.
