On The Block: Chris Benz, From His House To YoursAuthor:Philip Ferrato
The vintage marketplace we love, Chairish, is holding an online sale from the personal collection of Chris Benz, the designer and Creative Director of Bill Blass. The auction began early this morning, and we’ve picked a few favorites from a very tempting collection. It was a tough job– there’s something for everyone, from those anchor pieces that provide structure to a room to the oddball accessory that you can’t live without, plus some exceptional ceramics.
As for a basic, functional but elegant piece of furniture, you can’t go wrong with this cool, chic, Gustavian painted sideboard for $1000.00. You could use it as originally intended (as a sideboard) but we’d probably put a wide-screen TV on it.
Graphic, but with a primitive immediacy, this African stool at $475.00 could be the perfect perch for a cocktail.
A chic Moroccan rug brings a blast of color to any space. Once woven only in natural ivory or dark grey wools, these intensely colored rugs started showing up in the 1950s when a clever Frenchmen gave tribal weavers a palette of Mid-Century dyes to work with. This is a prime example, and a steal at $750.00.
Benz has been collecting Italian ceramics for years, and we’re in love with this box by Aldo Londi for Bitossi. It’s about 8×4-inches and at $75.00, the perfect tabletop jolt of deep jewel tones. Probably intended for cigarettes, it will elevate your paper clips and rubber bands to the next level.
