Go Home With Ellen DeGeneres (Kind Of) With Her Curated Auction Picks
Ellen DeGeneres has had a busy week. She crushed it in a lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon, went on tour with Taylor Swift and whipped and nae-naed with no other than Hillary Clinton during The Ellen Show's premiere week, all while filming season two of her hit HGTV show Ellen's Design Challenge in Los Angeles.

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi pose in their living room, full of a curated collection of old and new furniture and art pieces.
The show's second season premieres in January 2016, but if you can't wait to see Ellen's furniture picks on TV, you can bid to take home pieces from her amazing personal collection in a curated online auction. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society, a cause near and dear to Ellen's heart.
Pieces for sale from her own collection range from a classic midcentury modern upholstered bench by T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings (bids start at $3,400) to an early 19th-century plant stand (bids begin at $800.) The biggest-ticket item: A Machine Age, aluminium and ebonite lamp designed by French decorative artist Jacques Le Chevaillier in collaboration with Rene Koechlin, which has a starting bid of a whopping $46,000. Bidding ends September 22. See all the pieces here.
