Places– of Charm

A glamourous globe-trotter’s fantansy room, wouldn’t you say?  In the late 1990s, a prestigious California homeowner commissioned Tony Duquette and Hutton Wilkinson to create a Moroccan-inspired tented room. The entire contents, including the rich, draped fabrics, custom furnishings and eclectic imported accessories, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder at Bonhams & Butterfield’s of 20th-century decorative arts on  Oct. 5 in Los Angeles.

  1. Hard to get the vac up there, wouldn’t it, Wade! The ceiling is very high. According to Duquette, the tent fabric is from India, and by tenting the room, he was able to hide architectural flaws.

  2. Reba, I can picture you on that long sofa. That table is an Asian altar table and was painted a rich coral. The wall sconces were made from iron and automobile hubcaps. All this stuff will be auctioned off (at high prices, $3000 and up).
