Here is another statement piece: the bar! We have had several requests for bars lately—often the requests are for Modern bars but this one in tonight’s Artcurial sale caught our eye. It creates a counter balance in a Paris client’s Haussmanian apartment, which is filled with Modern design. This ‘bar’ is actually a counter from the Magasin Lefèvre-Utile in Nantes. The initials ‘LU’ are visible in the center of each cartouche. LU is a famous brand of biscuits here in France.
