I’ve always thought of what it would be like to dine here in the Four Seasons heyday. Jackie Kennedy lunching when she was a book editor, Philip Johnson in the Grill Room, gossip columnist Liz Smith, Andy Warhol… and the power lunches.. very Mad Menesque.
It was designed in 1959 by Philip Johnson for Mies van der Rohe’s landmark Seagram building on Park Avenue in Manhattan.
The furniture, tableware and objects will be offered at auction by Wright Auction House in an extraordinary one day event to take place in the original interior. Featuring approximately 500 lots, the sale will include works by Mies van der Rohe and Hans Wegner as well as custom designs by Philip Johnson and special-ordered Knoll furniture. The tableware and cookware designed by L. Garth and Ada Louise Huxtable will also be offered.
See you there!
