Furniture Pimp: The Collection of Jim Walrod

AUCTION  3 May 2018 12 pm central



Jim Walrod’s eye was legendary. Mike D of the Beastie Boys called him his ‘Furniture Pimp’ in sincere gratitude of his talents as a designer and in appreciation for the breadth of his knowledge. Clients worldwide — from David Bowie to André Balasz — sought his unparalleled expertise. Although Jim saw his role as a guide, aiding clients in finding their own distinct eye, it was his unique vision that shaped so many others. His career began after a chance meeting with Andy Warhol led Jim to work for Fiorucci, the legendary style makers. There he was introduced to the radical designs of Ettore Sottsass and the Memphis group, as well as the key members of the New York art world. In 1987, Jim entered the New York art scene with his first gallery on Lafayette. He opened Form & Function in 1998, which became a mainstay for those looking for expertly curated vintage design. He remained true to his unique vision throughout his career, later lending his expertise as an interior designer, adviser and curator. With exhibitions at R & Company and Patrick Parrish Gallery, Jim shared his collecting vision with an even wider audience.

never one to shy away from a challenge, Jim sought works labeled as ugly or incompatible Jim’s beloved Chinatown loft always remained the truest expression of his remarkable collecting vision. Works by friends were placed alongside modern icons creating an interior rich in dialog. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Jim sought works labeled as ugly or incompatible. And it is those experiments that make his collection so wonderfully rare and unique. Jim shared glimpses of this extraordinary space with friends, followers on social media and clients. Sourced from numerous locations, he was proud of his finds, whether it was a rare book or piece of radical lighting. Each cherished object was thoughtfully selected and likewise showcased within his interior. This collection celebrates a rare collecting vision without boundaries. Each object was assembled with a singular appreciation of its aesthetic, regardless of the value to the outside world. As Jim was known to say: “Time is the only real critic that matters”.

“ He knew everything about downtown New York and its cultural history. He knew everything about everyone I ever knew. Jim not only knew everyone who I knew, he knew everyone who I was supposed to know and he wanted me to meet even if I didn’t know them yet. He knew everything about design, fashion, music, art, books, the underground, pop culture. He knew about all the players in New York back in the day. He knew about all the players in New York right at this very moment. Hell Jim just knew! No matter what I spoke to him about, he already knew it. He had this way of bobbing his head up and down the minute you started a sentence as if he knew what it was that you were going to say. And of course when you said it he already knew it. ” Kim Hastreiter

I mean, there’s a Noguchi radio from 1942 that was made for Zenith, and on the back it says, “Designed by Noguchi.” He was a preeminent sculptor of the period who actually went into the design field to produce something that was marketable, that worked with new materials. It was priced so that it could be sold, and it was also something artistic that could be in anyone’s house. It could be in a child’s room but still look like a Japanese death mask! And it echoes almost every other piece of work that he was doing at that time. – JW

“ When one is a child, in elementary school, high school, etc, one immediately responds ‘to people with no expectations and goals.’ Somehow simply saying to yourself, without words ‘there you are.’ As one gets older, that changes, yet every now and then, you see someone and say: ‘there you are.’ Somehow fall into step... Jim was such a person for me, losing him so suddenly has stayed with me, more than I would have ever expected. Otherwise he was an asshole, but he was my kind of asshole. He made me sick, but he gave me the cure. ” Peter Shire

They’re examples of Postmodernism and I realized maybe this is the reason I like difficult furniture or atonal furniture. You don’t go, “Okay’s where’s my chairs?” You go “Holy shit what is that thing?” You have to think about it. It invades you and makes your feel uncomfortable in a lot of ways, and that’s the point. It opens up dialogue. – JW
