Sebastian+Barquet specializes in post-war, 20th-century American and Italian design and decorative art as well as selected work by contemporary designers. Our emphasis is primarily on rare and important works by designers, artists and architects whose work has left an indelible mark on the design landscape.

In addition to regular shows in our gallery space and a revolving inventory in our showroom we attend and show at several design fairs per year around the globe.
