Style and Simplicity in Chelsea

Style and Simplicity in Chelsea

Selected contents from a Victorian property in Chelsea will be sold throughout various sales at Sworders this winter and next spring.

1 November 2022


Situated just moments away from the bustling King’s Road in a quiet and peaceful enclave, the townhouse presents the antithesis to many of the maximalist interiors we have seen of late. It has been sympathetically decorated in a light and modern palette, allowing full attention to be given to the softly aged materials of the furniture and décor, such as the rich warmth of an 18th century oak dresser or the vibrant wool threads of a Tabriz carpet.

Including both antique pieces, from country oak to Regency, and contemporary trend-led furniture such as a kilim-upholstered stool in the manner of George Smith, most of the collection will be sold in our Homes and Interiors sale on 22 November, followed by Fine Interiors on 6 December. To be the first to know when our catalogues go live, set a reminder on the relevant sale page below.
