  • Wright is Design

    Wright is the premier auction house specializing in modern and contemporary design. Since 2000 we have sold nearly 40,000 lots across the spectrum of 20th and 21st century design. We have pioneered whole fields of collecting and transformed the market for modern design. Our dedication to design drives what we do and who we are.

    Wright is Architecture

    Rooted in our history of selling architect designed furniture from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry, Wright pioneered the sale of Important Architecture at auction. Wright has successfully sold Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House 21, offered Louis Kahn’s Esherick House to wide acclaim and brought the Empire State Building archive to auction. We champion the preservation of Modern Architecture in America and have a unique niche in the architecture market.

    Wright is Art

    Beginning with our very first sale, Wright has continuously handled art of the 20th century. From Bertoia to Warhol, we have presented fine art of the past century at auction with strong and dependable results. Wright has a distinctive place within the market, celebrating the art and cultivating a broad collector base for accessible works.

    Wright is Experienced

    Richard Wright, with over 30 years experience in the field, is widely recognized as the expert for modern design. He, and his assembled a team of specialists, singularly focus on the modern and contemporary time period. Through our experience we have developed a strong network of both buyers and sellers and our experts visit collections and clients, advising on selling, buying and all other aspects of the market.

    Wright is Global

    Wright experts travel internationally to find the best and most compelling works within the market. We seek pieces that express our vision. Wright highlights new areas of design — both international and domestic, from the modern to the contemporary — introducing new objects into the history of design. Wright serves a global market through a global network of buyers.

    Wright is Creative

    Through our catalogs, photography, website, essays and curated sales, Wright truly embraces the creative spirit of design. Our catalogs have won numerous awards, distinguishing us within the auction industry and we constantly strive to present our works in innovative, fresh and informative ways. Our creativity allows us to approach things differently and to move quickly to make our auctions the most responsive in the industry.
