Some items from the sale:
• Murano glass chandeliers.
• A walnut dining table and chairs from the dining area of the former celebrity suite, a 2,150-square-foot space reserved for visiting celebrities like Elton John and Yo-Yo Ma (who signed the suite's baby grand piano).
• A hand-woven tapestry from the former 32nd floor reception hall.
How do you feel about furniture bought from an iconic hotel? A few years ago in DC, I bought a pair of 1960's era chairs that came from the famous Madison Hotel. I still love those chairs and am happy I have them to remind me of my fun years living in DC.
