In 2008 shop and furnish your home like a professional decorator with Christie's South Kensington's extended program of over 30 Interior Sales throughout the year. Bursting with an inspiring selection of affordable and stylish period furniture, beautiful artworks and decadent decorative arts, the sales provide endless opportunities to turn your home into the style icon of your street.

Beautifully laid out in Christie's South Kensington's stunning new salerooms, sales are on view at the weekend, with a Sunday sale held once a month as well as regular late night views and sales on Tuesdays. For those who can't make it to the saleroom, it's now possible to view items for sale and bid over the Internet with Christie's LIVE™.

Christie's South Kensington's extended program of Interiors Sales again leads the way with the most exciting approach to buying and selling art and home furnishings. Whether just watching from the street, bidding in the auction room, or clicking over the internet, buying in an auction at Christie's South Kensington couldn't be easier.

Debuting in January 2008, The Interior Sales will include a number of special themed weeks alongside Christie's regular sales:

Style & Spirit Editions - Exquisite selections of exceptional furniture, objects, carpets, silver, Asian works of art and European porcelain, perfect for those looking to live with affordable opulence.

Oak Editions - Warm Oak furniture, folk art, beautiful quilts, elegant samplers, early sculptures and beautiful silver and pottery to inspire the home decorator wishing to evoke the style of early English heritage.

Twentieth Century Week - a celebration of the designs, influences and culture that defined the 20th century from cutting edge designs and artworks to fashion, home furnishings and photography.

Every lot in the Interior Sales is beautifully illustrated in a large scale magazine-style catalogue, ideal for browsing when looking for that unique and chic, modern or antique piece of furniture. Each catalogue also explains fully the process of buying at auction for those new to the experience, and ways of bidding if you are unable to attend the auction in person, such as via phone or via the internet with Christie's LIVE™.

"From Newlyweds to top decorators, from Knightsbridge to Notting Hill, those in the know decorate their homes at Christie's South Kensington. Now our enhanced, weekly Interior Sales offer an even more fantastic retail alternative for shoppers and decorators looking to complete their homes with stylish works that will hold their value. Drop in any day of the week, have a look around and have a chat with our specialists who can provide expertise, friendly advice and help you buy or sell at auction," Nic McElhatton, Head of Interior Sales and Deputy Chairman of Christie's South Kensington.
