At Casa de Memoria’s Tercero auction, the rich historic past meets modern times wherein bidders can take their pick from an enchanting variety of Filipino and European auction pieces to elevate their home. The auction is now live online until July 31, Saturday.
Here are some of the highlight lots at Casa de Memoria’s Tercero auction:
Stylish furniture. Breathe life into your space with a pair of Louis XV – Style Fauteuils chairs and the mid-20th century European pop “lips” style chair. The pair of 19th century Portuguese mahogany fauteuils in Louis XV style were upholstered with settees with a toile hunting scene styled by Monchet Olives (Lot 063, P40,000).
