Some thoughts regarding todays article about the french art trader
“Cornette de Saint Cyr” jumping into dealing with “classic design”.
Being “priced out of the market”. After flipping through their catalog
I am not sure if I feel richer because of the objects I already accumulated
or poorer because of the objects that have become more expensive, again.
There are already a bunch of houses specialising in this field over here.
This has broadened the knowledge about the “value” of the objects a lot. Though
this is mad if you are to remodel a house, in general I think it is great, because it
shows in bright colors how quality design creates lasting value…
On the first pages they are featuring a project by a guy I studied with. This gives
me the strangest vibe. 10 years ago we were rookies and now his stuff already gets
auctioned off as “classic”.
I feel a midlife crisis lurking around the corner. ; )
