Special Monaco auction catalogue from 1987 focussing in on vast lots of lavish and rarely-seen modern furniture from Villa C. a Croix, a large modernist mansion created by Robert Mallet-Stevens in 1931-32. The influential French architect and designer was responsible for all the interior fittings and furnishings of this extraordinary example of modern residential architecture.
