Australian music exec Victor Van Vugtwho has worked with the likes of Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, and othersmust really like old English sheepdogs, because there's a sculpture of one in the middle of his Tribeca loft. But alas, the very still version of Price Eric's dog Max by the very famous artist Jeff Koons must go with Vugt to his next home, since his old one sold for $5.425 million late last month. The sale, which was first potted by the Observer, was a boon for Vugt, who paid $2.456 million for the full-floor apartment on 144 Franklin Street back in 2005. Designed by Norwegian architecture firm Tupelo, the place has other cool features that include beamed ceilings, scattered columns, and a bar that folds down out of the shiny metallic room divider.
