Former Arch Digest Editor to Sell Personal Excess Online

After the 1971 murder of Architectural Digest editor Bradley Little, then-associate editor Paige Rense took the reigns at the magazine and led it for the next three and a half decades. Over her reign, she increased circulation from 50,000 to more than 850,000 and became a major mover and shaker in the design world. In 2010, she stepped down to settle the estate of her fifth husband, the color field painter Kenneth Noland, including the sale of his studio (above) in the seaside town of Port Clyde, Maine. Finding that her Florida home was simply overcrowded with possessions, Rense has decided to sell much of her collection of home wares (and some designer fashions) on the online flash sales site One King's Lane. The sale, which begins at 11 A.M. on Saturday, will include highlights like a $445 carved wooden whale (very Maine) and, get ready, a $35K vintage Hermès bag.
