Care to Take a Seat?

Which San Francisco art patron has his eye on this fantastic aluminum lounge by Marc Newsom? (No relation to the Gavin.) Featured in the upcoming Sotheby’s auction “Important 20th Century Design,” the handmade fiberglass and aluminum chair from 1986 is expected to go for at least $800,000.

And it’s not even leather!

Only ten were made, including the one featured in Madonna’s video, “Rain”. As Newsom has fans from San Francisco to Paris (Karl Lagerfeld has oodles of his stuff) to Sydney (this chair is from a private collection in Australia), expect bidding to be fierce!
