Marc Jacobs is selling his personal art and décor

Fans of Marc Jacobs now have the chance to bring more of his style into their home, with the American fashion designer selling items from his personal art and décor collection.

Jacobs is selling off various furniture items and art pieces via Sotheby’s Home ahead of his move from New York City to a home in Westchester County.

Among the unusual collection of items for sale are a $395 lobster candle holder, a $495 sheep sculpture, and two $12,995 upholstered fauteuils.

Jacobs also sold a number of paintings and artworks from his Greenwich Village townhouse at the end of 2019.

The designer is moving into a Frank Lloyd Wright home known as the Max Hoffman House in Rye, New York.

He revealed the motivation behind selling off the items in an interview with Sotheby’s last year.

“I’m not Marie Kondo,” he said. “I didn’t decide everything must go.…When you move into a Frank Lloyd Wright house, there isn’t a lot of wall space and you can’t hang a lot of paintings.

“As much as I will have a difficult time parting with them, I just felt it’s time to give myself this window to start again.”

Rug trends for 2020

The new year is the perfect opportunity to freshen up interiors. This year, we’re seeing an exciting mix of rugs to both brighten up rooms and soften spaces.

 

Geometric prints

Bold, geometric patterns will bring a fresh energy to any space. In 2020, we’re seeing twists on chevron, abstract shapes and creative patterns.

Natural fibres

Sustainable and conscious consumption is quickly moving its way into interiors. Natural fibre rugs continue to be a popular trend, with designers exploring new ways to utilise materials. These rugs are a great way to soften and ground a space, bringing an earthy feel to interiors.

 

 

Nature-inspired

Bring Mother Earth indoors with these nature-inspired rugs. From subtle leafy details, to ocean blues, to quirky animal motifs, these rugs are the perfect way to bring life to living spaces.

Neutral tones

A step away from striking colours and sharp designs, neutral tones are a great way to balance out interiors and bring a subtle comfort to a room.
