BILLINGS LA Auction House is a curated live auction and design community-inspired happening at the Great Company, at 1917 Bay Street. The auction house was recently established in the heart of Los Angeles’ evolving arts district to provide affordable access to quality vintage modern furnishings, art, objects and accessories. Offering rare and noteworthy pieces at low to no reserve, with estimates ranging from $100 to $5,000, its curated cross-section covers the pedigreed to the anonymous, and the classic to the unusual. Co-founded by four highly respected Los Angeles dealers and gallerists, BILLINGS has amassed a collection of a hundred years of North American and international design and decorative arts from the 20th to early 21st centuries, placing an emphasis on mid-century modern selections and pieces from the 60’s and 70’s. December 12th auction is open to the public and will offer live entertainment, featuring music, and food trucks.
