Furniture at Sworders



Fine furniture forms the backbone of Sworders' business and our auctions offer a wide variety of styles, spanning four centuries of design. We cater for a range of tastes so are not bound by period. Quality workmanship and good design never go out of fashion.

We aim to prove that you can easily accommodate academically interesting furniture and works of art alongside high quality contemporary soft furnishings in the modern home. Quarterly Fine Interiors auctions marry fine period pieces produced by, or in the manner of, renowned makers such as Gillows of Lancaster, Thomas Chippendale and Thomas Hope with contemporary, comfortable soft furnishings by the likes of George Smith and others.

A highlight of our Anniversary sale in June 2018 saw a George III rosewood sofa backgammon table in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster sell for £7,100 including premium.

We continue to source high quality pieces in good original condition for sales throughout the year. To find out more about our forthcoming sales or talk further about potential consignments, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our specialist team.
