Fine Interiors

 

 

 

The Fine Interiors Sale showcases the very best of antique and classic contemporary furnishings to delight, excite and educate anyone from seasoned collectors and dealers to the most novice interior designers. 

The sales are carefully curated by our specialists James Pickup and Alexander Hallett who draw on years of experience and an accomplished understanding of period furnishing styles, as well as grasp on contemporary trends and fashions, aim to show that antique needn’t mean old fashioned.

Our industry leading catalogues, filled with a plethora of meticulously selected and arranged lots, are designed to mirror the familiar luxury feel of high end interior design magazines in order to inspire the reader, acquainting them with all those pieces that they didn’t know they needed!

Featured in the World of Interiors’ Interiors Index, these sales aim to promote the idea that a cleverly chosen piece of antique furniture can transform or enhance your interior design scheme, be that an 18th Century rustic Windsor chair adding texture, authenticity and naïve charm or a beautifully upholstered Howard and Sons settee providing the perfect place to sit cosily of an evening.

With access to a broad panel of independent industry specialists, Sworders’ Fine Interiors sales are also the perfect place for more specialist and significant pieces.  With a commitment to diligent research and precise marketing, we guarantee that every lot will be presented to its best advantage, ensuring that it receives the attention it deserves, maximising the opportunity to achieve the highest possible sale price.

A Roadshow Trump

Bought from an antiques dealer several years previously, the present owners of this painting wanted to know more about their dog. They took him along to a BBC Antiques Roadshow in July 2014 where it was instantly recognised as a copy of the dog in Hogarth’s “Manifesto” self-portrait painted in 1745.
