The Furniture Row in Austin is closing its doors for good.
The Fox Hollow Collection, which began in the 1920s, will be retired from the market by August 30, 2017.
The building is located on the corner of North and Main streets in Austin, Texas.
The former Fox Hollow Building is now the site of the Austin Museum of Art, a collection of over 20,000 pieces.
The museum is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Fox Hollow, like other old-time furnishings in the Austin area, is undergoing a renovation.
The Fox Hollows furnishings will be auctioned off, as well as other furnishings from the collection, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as part of the new exhibit, “Furniture Row: The Making of a Modern Art City.”
The sale includes furnishings that date back to the early 20th century, including: the “Fox Hollow” chairs from the 1920’s; the “Faux Faux” table lamps from the 1930’s; and the “Downton Abbey” and “Sidney Lumet” chairs in the 1950s and 1960s.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the Fox Hills Neighborhood Association.
“Furnishings from our collection were designed and built to last and are timeless pieces of art that represent an era in Austin’s history and the city as a whole,” said James Hickey, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Fox Hollow.
Fox Hollows is one of only two Fox Hollow collections in existence, the other being the historic Fox Hollow Mansion.
