Introducing Take 5 by Nina Litchfield and her five highlights from the upcoming

Design auction taking place on Wednesday 15 November


Nina Litchfield, Founder & Creative Director of @NinaLitchfieldStudios, was born in Brazil and raised in Germany. Beginning her career in London with roles at Sotheby's and BPCM, Nina transitioned to interior design after the birth of her first child. She holds a diploma from Inchbald School of Design and amassed over four years of experience with Mangrove & Co. In 2020, post the initial lockdown, Nina Litchfield Studios emerged, swiftly establishing itself as a leading interior design firm. 


Lot 59: Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) for Poul Jeppesen,
Set of six model 'PJ 412' armchairs, circa 1960 



My first choice is lot 59. I love these chairs; they would be reupholstered to make a great, comfortable addition to any dining table. I believe they are timeless, and depending on the fabric you choose, they can look more glamorous, colourful, or simply cool!

Lot 126:William John Marriner for Fulham Pottery,
Fluted twin loop-handled mantel vase FMC 2, 1930s 

My second pick is lot 126. I have a soft spot for pottery, and this is a particularly beautiful one that would make a great addition with or without flowers to any home! It is so charming! I would have it on a mantelpiece or a bookshelf. It will be especially pretty if the wall behind is a colour so that the white ceramic really pops out!

Lot 156: Severin Hansen (1887-1964) for Haslev Møbelsnedkeri
'Bridge' floor lamp, circa 1955

Next is lot 156. This is one of my all-time favourite lighting designs, and the shade is just so delicious! Picture this in a bedroom by the reading chair! Perfect! It feels like a feminine design which would soften a room.

Lot 169: Italian Adjustable floor lamp,
late 20th century Brass

Next, I chose lot 169. It’s a really funky light that would add character to any room. I believe that this standing light in a living room would bring an unexpected twist to an otherwise traditional interior.

Lot 257: Charles and Ray Eames for Vitra

'FSW-6' folding screen, circa 2000

And my last pick is lot 257. This screen is a design classic and would divide one space into two perfectly! Chic, funky, and fun! I believe this is the perfect piece if you want to give a part of the room privacy and feel like it’s secluded from the rest but still have the overall open-play feeling!
