New York | 22 August 2018
Featuring Property from the Collection of Tom Britt
and vignettes styled by Sarah Bray, Interiors Editor, Modern Luxury, and Anne Spilman, Designer
Christie’s announces the summer sale of Interiors taking place on August 22, 2018 in New York. The auction presents over 400 lots of furniture, decorative objects, and fine art, led by a selection of Property from the Collection of Tom Britt. Taking place concurrently is the online sale The Collection of Melva Bucksbaum: Design and Interiors (August 16-23). Both auctions will be on view at Christie’s New York August 17-22.
Designer and collector, Tom Britt’s interiors are consistently dynamic, inventive, and optimistic, with palettes presenting a rainbow of primary colors often emboldened with splashes of glossy black or brilliant white. Featured in the sale are furnishings emblematic of his signature aesthetic, blending together luxuriously gilded European antiques with Indian temple fragments, Chinese tables flecked with mother of pearl, and consoles modeled after the capitals that grace ancient buildings in the Middle East.
Additionally, Christie’s worked alongside tastemakers Sarah Bray, Interiors Editor at Modern Luxury, and Anne Spilman, designer, to select objects from the sale and create a series of vignettes set against gem-colored walls enhanced by signature Schumacher prints. For more information about their selections and insights into how to incorporate antiques into diverse, modern interiors, see link to video on Christies.com.
THE COLLECTION OF MELVA BUCKSBAUM:
DECORATIVE ARTS AND DESIGN
Online | 16-23 August 2018
Taking place August 16-23 and on view alongside the Interiors sale, is the online sale The Collection of Melva Bucksbaum: Decorative Arts and Design, which presents over 100 lots of decorative art and design featuring an exceptional collection of Boch Frères Keramis ceramics, European silver, 19th/20th Century design, Chinese furniture and textiles, and a selection of rare art books.
Across her many years in philanthropy, leadership and collecting, Melva Bucksbaum stood as one of the art world’s most beloved figures. Tireless in her support of artists and their work, she held an unwavering belief in the power of the creative process to transform individuals and communities. Seeking to share her passion for art with all, her unshakeable belief in the artistic process led to what is perhaps her greatest public feat: the Bucksbaum Award, established in 2000.
Nowhere was Melva Bucksbaum’s commitment to art more apparent than in her private collection of fine art, decorative art and design, displayed with pride at her residence in New York, where she demonstrated how to truly live with art every day. Additional property from the collection will be sold in October 2018, in a dedicated online sale The Collection of Melva Bucksbaum: Post-War and Contemporary Art, Photographs and Prints (October 16-24).

• Current World number 2 in the high jump
• Named Ukraine’s Best Female Athlete of the Year in 2017
• Will be wearing an RM 07-01 Automatic Ladies in Carbon TPT®
Specialist in the high jump, Yuliya Levchenko has catapulted to stardom. In just four years, she has gone from clearing 1.70m to a performance of 2.01m at the latest World Championships in London, an exploit that earned her a silver medal. The youngest of Richard Mille’s partners, Yuliya will certainly find a place next to Mutaz Essa Barshim, her masculine counterpart and undisputed king of the discipline.
At just 20 years old, the lithe Slav—whose beauty is exceeded only by her performance on the track—is already shattering expectations. Born in Kiev, Yuliya trains indefatigably to become the best. ‘It has taken me seven years to reach this level, which is both a lot of time and no time at all. Everyone tells me that my progress has been extremely quick. Many female athletes take fifteen years or more to clear over two metres! So far, I’m quite pleased that I have managed to outdo myself at each major international event—I think I must be a born competitor. I love feeling the tension of the big competitions, overcoming my stress and pushing myself to the limit. In my experience, there’s nothing better than the feeling of satisfaction after clearing a height that you’ve never reached before.’
The young woman attracted attention at the age of 17, with a personal record of 1.83m at the Youth Olympic Games. She would go on to win the Olympic title, besting herself yet again by clearing the bar at 1.89m. From there, her career really took off: After winning a Bronze medal at the 2016 World Junior Athletics Championships, she claimed Gold in the U23 European Championships, followed by two silver medals at the 2017 Diamond League and World Athletics Championship. A born competitor who constantly strives to surpass herself, Yuliya has improved on her personal best with every event. This remarkable feat earned her the title of Best Female Athlete 2017 in her homeland, Ukraine.
Richard Mille relishes working with such high-performance athletes. His very personal relationship with the brand’s partners, which finds form in watchmaking developments, is reinforced by a shared desire for ever greater performance. The high jump especially requires absolute precision, perfect technique, and a superlative power-to-weight ratio. ‘I used to think of watches mostly as fashion accessories,’ confides Yuliya. ‘What I like about Richard Mille is the idea of bringing together the “friends of the brand.” it’s like a team. Some are sportspeople, but others are not. There are also artists and actors. I love this vision; it’s almost as if I’ve joined a new family. Everyone knows that sport brings people together—and it seems as though Richard Mille does so too.’
With his keen eye for young talent—like Alexander Zverev, the world’s current #3 tennis player, who was #38 on the ATP Tour in 2016 when he joined the Richard Mille family, or Charles Leclerc, Alexis Pinturault and so many others—Richard Mille will accompany the young Ukrainian athlete in her sporting endeavours. On the field, she will leap for the gold wearing an RM 07-01 Automatic Ladies in Carbon TPT®.
