Roan emailed Jo and I, and I had to post about this because he is a fellow Canadian, and my parents are both cancer survivors:
"I was hoping you'd be interested in perhaps blogging about my annual Cancer Society charity auction of 20th Century Design and Decorative Art. This will be the 5th year of the auction, with sales helping generate vital funding for cancer research and emotional support programs for those living with the disease. Held in support of the Canadian Cancer Society, a portion of every sale will be donated to the cause.
The auction will take place on eBay, with items to be listed throughout the week of November 28th, with all listings to end in sequence on December 8th.
This year's collection includes works by Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Eero Saarinen, Hans Wegner, Jean Prouve, Charlotte Perriand, and many more. As well, some interesting art pieces by Takashi Murakami, Larry Clark, Mark Gonzales, and Jeff Koons are also in the mix.
The complete catalog is online now at: ModernLove "
The items up for auction are absolutely incredible. I seriously had a hard time not grabbing every single photo on the website. I love every single piece. Below is just a small sample of what is available. Wishing you lots of luck with the auction Roan!!
