Fine Interiors - Two Day Sale - Live Online

Tue, 14th Sep 2021 - Wed, 15th Sep 2021

 

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.

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 below.
