On May 8th, Wright Auctions presents Scandinavian Design. So I know this is sort of a cop out post but I have always loved to play the “if I could just have one” game. Wright always has some stunning pieces and this batch is no exception. As I looked through the auction, thinking “I would have?” I was drawn to the PETER HVIDT tables model 523. I have always been drawn to the spiral pieces and how you can configure them in different designs.
OK, here goes…If you could have just one, which one would it be?
