I have always liked it,...
I have always liked it, though its never been in my top five. This age and color however, I could reconsider. Its gorgeous.

I don't like the rosewood arms on the Oda chair for some reason
The Finn Juhl sofa has a great color combo too.

I'm going with monkey. I hear he can play wide receiver, cornerback, safety and even a little bit of QB.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!!
The estimates are RIDICULOUSLY inflated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For example the Ystad candlesticks #263, abundantly available all over the internet for as low as $20 each. You can easily buy 17 of them from a bunch of different sellers online for less than $400 total but here the estimate for 17 is 3K-5K!!!!!
I don't think so!

I noticed that too. There is some collector that will want first production and will pay for it.

But someone has already bid on the Ystad collection of seventeen candlesticks...

@guyinSF, You obviously are not...
You obviously are not familiar with Wright Auctions. Not only do they hit their estimates fairly regularly, a good percentage even shoots way passed them. Look up completed auctions for PS Heggen waste bins in their archives (or Liveauctioneers) for a good example.

I admit that I can't figure it out myself, but this is not a case of 1stDibs pricing that may or may not get realized.

I personally like Wright Auctions because I can see certain rare Danish Modern pieces in person, which I would otherwise not be able to here in Chicago.

Viewing for March 28th Auction just started
The good: First time I'd seen some personal favorites in person, including a Wegner Valet chair, Nakashima bench, and any Maloof piece.

The confusing: First time I'd also seen any Prouve or Jeaneret Chandigarh piece in person. I guess I understand the reasoning for Chandigarh pieces to be highly valued due to their specific history and connection to Corbu, but I never realized how average their construction quality was. Were they made by local craftsmen? Also, even though the caning appeared to be new, the chairs did not look very inviting to sit on. I passed. Instead, I spent more time sitting on the Valet, Nakashima and Maloof pieces.

Another reason I like Wright; a museum of rotating exhibits with pieces you can touch and sit on (most of the time).
