RUG: KARL LAGERFELD'S LOUIS XV TSHIRT WHITE
Karl Lagerfeld's Louis XV Carpet
Souvenirs from the road less travelled. They really tie the room together.
Three carpets of this exact design by Pierre-Josse Perrot were made for the Crown Furniture Repository in France, the administration responsible for furniture and art inside the royal residences.
On April 28, 2000, Christie's Monaco held a sale of items from the collection of Karl Lagerfeld, including this Louis XV Savonnerie carpet (1740-50).
The last of the three to be produced had sold for $4.4m, but this one - thanks to its star-studded provenance - sold for $5.7 million.
