Viyet has partnered with interior designer Hutton Wilkinson of Tony Duquette Studios to sell upwards of 80 pieces from Conti, the three-bedroom guesthouse at legendary designer Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge estate. Among the finds: Louis XV–style upholstered Bergères; a geode side table; cast resin pieces, like a monkey figure and two elephant side tables; Hollywood Regency dining chairs, a rococo-style wall mirror; and classical fiberglass pedestals from Tony Duquette Studios.

Wilkinson told Viyet of the lessons Duquette shared with him: “Never compromise. Work from your gut. Your inner voice will never lead you astray. Follow the path of least resistance.”

80-plus items are now available in the Viyet sale.

“Something that we called the Tao of decoration: When the deer is ready to be shot, it will come into the forest,” Wilkinson continued. “In other words, you can’t force a job to be beautiful. You have to sit back and let it evolve. You have to listen to the room. But more importantly, you have to hear it. And when you hear what it wants, you have to act on it. That’s what makes a room great.”
