Maybourne Hotel Group, renowned for managing some of the world’s most legendary hotels like Claridge’s, The Connaught, and The Berkeley, is set to auction a remarkable archive of stored pieces in collaboration with NCM Auctions.
Spanning over a century, this extraordinary collection includes works by esteemed figures in the design world, such as David Linley, David Collins, and Ben Whistler. Divided into three auctions, it comprises antique furniture, bespoke commissioned pieces, lighting fixtures, artwork, and many other items that have graced the interiors of the group’s prestigious London hotels.
In a departure from the norm, where companies typically select only their most valuable assets for sale, Maybourne Hotel Group has taken a refreshing approach by appointing NCM Auctions to sell their entire collection with a focus on sustainability and the circular economy. This move not only offers the public a unique opportunity to acquire these coveted pieces but also benefits the local community, small businesses, and charities. By diverting these items from landfills and giving them a second life through reuse, repair, and recycling, the collection contributes to a more sustainable future while reducing the storage impact for Maybourne Hotel Group.
The collection will be available through three exclusive online auctions, with the first being a live auction scheduled for the 27th of July 2023. Interested parties can now view the catalogues and register for the auctions at https://ncm.auction/claridges.
This unprecedented auction presents a rare chance to own a piece of history and bring the timeless elegance of Maybourne Hotel Group’s iconic properties into your own space. Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this exclusive event and become a custodian of these remarkable design treasures.
