Make room for the remarkable this May with The Collector: a series of auctions celebrating exceptional furniture and works of art for the home. Our three Decorative Arts sales at Christie’s London bring together striking antique pieces from the 17th to the 19th century that will add depth and interest to any interior – from beautifully crafted bureaus to statement vases, intricate clocks to candelabra.
Christie’s has collaborated with former art dealer and gallery owner Marella Rossi Mosseri on styling for The Collector. In partnership with Galleria Continua, Marella has juxtaposed pieces from the sales with works by contemporary artists from Cuba, Morocco and Cameroon. Explore Marella’s unique curatorial approach in person at our King Street Galleries from 19–23 May, where she will be dressing a room using furniture and objects from The Collector.
