Our friend Meredith over at Details sent us this link to Five Top Auction Houses, her piece on boutique outfits specializing in midcentury and modern furniture, where you can pick up well-priced pieces by Charlotte Perriand, Hans Wegner, and George Nakashima “minus the intimidation factor of Sotheby’s and Christie’s.” Below is a desk by Gio Ponti for Singer & Sons, offered by Sollo Rago Modern Auction in Lambertville, New Jersey.
