Subsequently, pieces are offered for sale via our gallery space as well as our international (online) sale channels.
Our customers are leading interior designers, architects, private collectors, museums, and general design enthusiasts from all over the world who, just like us, are looking for unique and extraordinary pieces. With our extensive team of approx. 50 experts (craftsmen, art historians, photographers, graphic designers, design specialists) we are always willing to go the extra mile to provide our customers with an excellent customer service journey in their quest for their new favourite design icons. To actualize this ambition relationship management is key. Our close-knit team of enthusiastic sales advisors is in touch with our international client base on a daily basis. New design pieces are also added to the collection every day. These do not only deserve your attention but should also constantly be flagged to suitable clients and design aficionados. You work amidst the collection and as such are constantly surrounded by the best art furniture items from the past century.
