Tour Andy Spade’s Sophisticated New York Apartment
When Andy Spade—visionary behind creative agency Partners & Spade (and, yes, husband to Kate)—hosts a garage sale, you come to a screeching halt, pulling over on the side of the road. The arbiter of style is not hosting a garage sale, per se, but after moving out of his home in Southampton, he has a figurative attic of art and collectible goods to offload. To do so, he’s teamed up with Paddle8 to host a landmark auction of his possessions. “I don’t like not displaying works, so I’m trying to get them out in the world,” he says.
The auction includes a whimsical array of artwork, including pieces by Dash Snow, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Hugo Guinness, as well as an offbeat collection of objects, from vintage clocks to a golden football helmet to missile-shaped lamps. Needless to say, Spade is a restless collector.
Today, Paddle8 is giving us a sneak peek of Spade’s New York City home, where you can see a couple of the items up for auction from his extensive art collection. Scroll on for the tour!
