I have yet to win anything at auction since I started bidding back in November. I bid on an antique Soumac carpet, 6’5″ x 4’5″ via absentee bidder at Pook & Pook’s July 29th auction. I lost. I bid $400–estimate was $200-$400–the rug went for $1659. Yikes, I have great taste!
It would have been perfect in my soon-to-be office/sitting room we’re renovating on the first floor of the house. I’m thinking of painting the walls Farrow & Ball’s Light Blue. The color feels soft and pretty against more masculine pieces like an antique rug and a chest of drawers. The hunt continues…
Have you had any good luck at auctions or flea markets lately?
