Recent pieces' time has come -- again

September 20, 2007|David A. Keeps

For its fall 20th century decorative-arts sale, Bonhams & Butterfields continues to offer furnishings of a more recent vintage. In addition to the standard fare of early-1900s glass, California ceramics and mid-century furniture, contemporary pieces by L.A. luminaries such as Roy McMakin and Sally Sirkin Lewis will be up for auction. Sami Hayek's 2005 Scott office suite may set a benchmark for the young L.A. designer, whose pieces are so new they rarely come up for resale. Composed of a coffee table, storage unit and this L-shaped, 8 1/2 -foot-long desk, Hayek's zebra wood collection has a presale estimate of $6,000 to $8,000. Previews open Friday; auction starts at 6 p.m. Monday. 7601 Sunset Blvd., (323) 850-7500, www.bonhams.com/us.
