Times arts writer Jori Finkel gives the rundown on Los Angeles Modern Auctions' upcoming sale of Ettore Sottsass design. Writes Finkel:

The March 6 sale includes nearly 20 works that Sottsass made for [Max] Palevsky, with estimates ranging  $500 to $700 for a slender wood console to $8,000 to $12,000 for a large couch anchored by an architectural table lamp that takes the form of a small temple. Three platform beds with wood headboards and built-in shelves and cabinetry are estimated at $2,000 to $3,000 each.
