Interiors for the collector
Decorative Art & Design has become one of the fastest growing areas of collecting in the past 10 years.
Responding to this auction houses all over Europe now dedicate numerous specialist sales to deal with the ever increasing demand at the top end of the market.
This demand has seen the entry of previously unknown but talented designers to the market, not only expanding the collecting field but increasing the prospect of investment opportunities.
As a result I would consider auction as the best route to take when starting a collection. Informative well researched catalogues are produced for each sale, written estimates give you some indication of where you will be going price wise, and open competition serves as assurance that you have paid the market price.
As your collection matures, the venues for collecting can expand to include the elite European art and design fairs patronised by the markets top collectors and Atelier.
