Hollywood for Sale: The 'Anna Karenina' movie set sale
To re-create the rich look of 19th century Russia in Anna Karenina, production designer Sarah Greenwood and set designer Katie Spencer — the Oscar-nominated duo behind Pride and Prejudice and Atonement — scoured flea markets, antique shops, and private collections for authentic furniture, props and art. And what they couldn’t find, they made.
Today at 11am EST, One Kings Lane kicks off a 72-hour flash sale of pieces straight from the set of Anna Karenina and additional items inspired by the film (in theaters now). Victorian furniture. books and artwork, curtains and light fixtures, and accessories like opera glasses and gloves are all part of the vast selection of goods, with prices ranging from $15-$2,000.
Previous One Kings Lane movie set sales have been pegged to Jane Eyre and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, but reps for the site tell us that, with more than 700 items up for grabs, the Karenina event is their biggest to date.
