Auction of Design

The design auctions and the related design department of Gregory’s are undergoing significant expansion to meet the demands of collectors worldwide, particularly those drawn to the allure of Italian and international design objects.

Gregory’s research encompasses objects, furniture, and lighting elements produced throughout the 20th century, including works from the Bauhaus movement, Constructivism, all the way to postmodern and deconstructivist design objects.

Gregory’s catalogs feature some of the most well-known 20th-century classics, with a special focus on furniture produced by prominent Italian designers and architects, which is highly sought after by collectors, decorators, and architects.
