Paintings, furniture, collectibles and decor: This month’s yield of auctions spans centuries and styles, with Christie’s, Bruun Rasmussen, Sotheby’s, Wright and Doyle New York leading the way.

First on tap is the Modern Art and Design sale at Bruun Rasmussen, beginning tomorrow at 8 p.m. Among the varied selection of art, furniture and decor: a Brazilian rosewood sideboard from Niels O. Møller, Finn Juhl’s “The Poet” two-seater sofa with walnut legs, and Hans J. Wegner's “Papa Bear Chair,” a wingback chair with matching teak stool.

The Christie’s American Furniture, Folk Art and Silver sale, starting January 22 at 10:30 a.m., will spotlight Chippendale carved chairs, inlaid mahogany sideboards and an array of silver pieces.
