Looking for a delightfully different designer piece? Want to dress up your walls with a Whiteley? Need to hit refresh in your furniture department? Or, simply dreaming of a Hermès handbag or a pair of Gucci earrings? Design Icons by Leonard Joel is here for you.

This November, the auction house is hosting a series of viewings and live auctions that hold a spotlight to the best of design. From Friday, November 11 till Sunday, November 13, head to University Place in Clayton to view the collections that are ready and waiting to go to the highest bidder. More like an exhibition of the impeccable pieces, even if you're not looking for your next forever-piece, it's still guaranteed to be a fascinating culture trip (and the ideal time for you to cut your auction-teeth if you're new to the scene).

When will the collections meet the gavel? Modern Design on Monday, November 14, Luxury on Tuesday, November 15 and Prints and Multiples on Wednesday, November 16.

The renowned Aussie auction house is a far cry from the dusty antiques and outdated estate sales your brain might first conjure. And, if you've ever been intimidated by an aggressive auctioneer, you need not worry either. Design Icons is redefining the auction experience, making investing in a piece of fine fashion, furniture or art fresh, fun and a whole lot more affordable (plus, you'll be bidding on pieces that are bespoke, vintage and limited edition). Leonard Joel knows what its doing — having done it for over a century.

Whether you have your heart set on something or you simply want to check out a unique retail experience, Design Icons is set to deliver a treasure trove of both experiences and pieces.

Design Icons by Leonard Joel is hosting viewings from Friday, November 11 till Sunday, November 13 and auctions on Monday, November 14; Tuesday, November 15; and Wednesday, November 16. For more information and to browse the catalogue ahead of time, visit the website.
