More than 50 Shades of Eileen Gray

 Eileen Gray is the 'black' of high design - her Dragon's Armchair set the bar when it sold at auction for 21.9 million euros in 2009.  Artist, furniture designer and architect, Gray was virtually ignored during her lifetime.  Today she is a collectors' dream as her pieces are so rare.  Gray is the subject of a retrospecitive at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.  Worth taking the Eurostar for!
