"The Smart Set"

Our friends at Bonhams tipped us off to a fall auction of furnishings designed by legendary decorator William Haines. The sale will include over 30 lots designed for actress and radio personality Irene Rich (who boasts not one but two stars on the Hollywood walk of fame.) And what makes this sale even more special? The proceeds are going to charity. Now that's a happy ending.

A set of four oak and leather dining chairs, c. 1956

A walnut and leather chest of drawers, c. 1956

The sale will be held in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 16th. Private previews can be arranged for the 13th; the public may preview the sale on the 14th and 15th. For more information, call (323) 850-7500.
