We invited interior designer Christopher Howe (@howelondon) to style a room in our London gallery using objects from our upcoming Interiors auction. Here's his creation.
.
‘The design I've put together here is very much "English country house", but we've mixed it up by adding a mid-century Swedish carpet,’ says Howe.
.
‘I tend to consider individual pieces in terms of form, texture and colour, and put them together that way. It’s not always easy because each object has to have its own integrity; it has to be able to stand up against pieces from other periods.’
.
Visit us from 22–30 January to discover more. Entry is free and open to all.

#LiveLikeARockefeller: David and Peggy Rockefeller's magnificent Chinese export dinner services have taken over 2 generations to assemble.
.
David's father also had a passion for Chinese export porcelain, particularly the ‘palace ware’ pattern (as it was then known) – richly decorated pieces with extensive gilt borders and unique court scenes.
.
David inherited pieces from both his father’s and aunt’s extensive Chinese export collections and added purchases of his own. The collecting community took note of the family's association with the pattern, and 'palace ware' is now known as ‘Rockefeller’ porcelain.
.
‘I like to think of these dinner services reflecting candlelight in the gorgeous dining room of the Rockefellers’ 65th Street house,’ says our specialist Becky MacGuire, ‘surrounded by antique Chinese wallpaper, and being enjoyed by the friends and family the Rockefellers loved to entertain.’

We invited interior designer Fabrice Bana (@agentofstyle) to style a room in our London gallery using objects from our Interiors auction. Here's the result.
.
‘For this space, I created a maximalist vignette that is quite luxurious, uniting elements from a wide range of cultures and time periods,’ explains Bana.
.
‘When I design a space, I always think about who will be living in it. I think a bit of wit, a bit of humour, having stories to tell are important, too.’

Live Like A Rockefeller: In the first post of our new series, we reveal the stories behind Peggy and David Rockefeller’s most treasured possessions.
.
Purchased by David Rockefeller in 1947, this 18th-century unicorn chest is a rare surviving example of Pennsylvanian German folk art. The Rockefellers themselves have German roots, and this chest touched on David’s heritage.
.
‘To David, a piece of folk art was as impressive as a Picasso,’ says John Hays, our Deputy Chairman in New York. ‘His love of folk art epitomises how grounded he was. In his final years, he surrounded himself not with Impressionist masterpieces, but with things like this.’
