To celebrate the opening of the Second Annual Winter Designer Fine Furniture Sale in New York City, White Glove Transportation will host a silent auction and preview of the sale, Friday, March 8, with proceeds benefitting the Alpha Workshops, a non-profit organization providing creative HIV-positive individuals with training and employment in the decorative arts.
Many iconic furniture pieces including the infamous Elvis Presley “Furry Bed” which once lived at Graceland, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Other items include designs from showrooms such as Andrew Martin, Profiles, Grange, TK Collections, and many more.
“Showcasing furniture from an iconic legend of American culture like Elvis Presley is the perfect balance of playful and nostalgia to kick off the sale,” said Neil Deutsch of White Glove Transportation. “Couple that with a great cause and never before access and pricing from top designers and this is an exciting opportunity.”
On Friday night, guests of the auction will also have a chance to view the over 500 sale items with a discount of up to 75 percent, before the show opens to the public Saturday, March 9.
“Last year’s sale was a huge success,” said Deutsch. “With the commitment of such high end showrooms and the aggressive sale pricing once again we expect a tremendous turnout.”
Here are some sale highlights:
Kilim Gonda Sofa: $2,895 retail, $995 net sale
