Antiques & The Arts Weekly: Rougemont’s Cloud Table Floats High At Abell

LOS ANGELES — Bidders
pushed contemporary artist/
designer Guy De Rougemont’s
(b 1935) “Nuage” or “Cloud”
coffee table to $93,750 at Abell
Auction’s October 18 sale.
Rougemont first created the
design in the 1970s as a commission
for decorator Henri
Samuel, who had seen a line of
cloud-shaped sculptures that
Rougemont had produced in
the late 1960s.
The Plexiglas and brass
example at Abell was not illuminated,
though Rougemont
was known to include illumination
in some of these
designs. It had come to sale
from the Gelbart Family Trust
of Beverly Hills, Calif., and
sold to an online bidder.
A sale review will appear in a
future issue.
