Columbus Ave Sideboard:    $596,500.00
AUCTION HOUSE: CHRISTIE'S
MAKER: GUSTAV

In the history of American Arts & Crafts furniture, no individual piece has commanded more attention than the “Columbus Avenue Sideboard.” The original sideboard was a special creation for Gustav Stickley’s own home. For years, it dutifully served in Gustav’s first floor dining room. In 1988, Gustav’s family chose to auction some of the furniture from the home, including the sideboard. At Christie’s auction house in New York, on December 10, 1988 the gavel came down – $363,000: the largest price tag ever for an individual piece of 20th century furniture. The buyer: Barbra Streisand. This was more than a signal to the world of furniture collectors. This was American Arts and Crafts kicking in the door and declaring “we’re here!” In 1999, the sideboard was sold by Streisand for a whopping $596,500. The #89-0440 Syracuse sideboard and the matching #89-0434 corner server, pictured below, are Stickley’s new interpretations of the Columbus Avenue model, tailored for Arts and Crafts legends and the everyday family.
