LONDON.- Christie’s announces the results of the online auction Alexandra Tolstoy: An Interior by Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler which took place online from 4 – 25 November.

The auction achieved £606,125, with the pre-sale low estimate of £155,400 being exceeded threefold with competitive bidding across categories. At closing the sale attracted successful buyers from more than 10 countries.

The collection included approximately 130 lots from Alexandra’s former London townhouse in Chelsea, where she lived with her family for eleven years until recently, including English furniture, lighting, porcelain, works of art, lighting, rugs and carpets all of which were carefully and lovingly curated by Alexandra working with Emma Burns and Daniel Slowik, Directors at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler Interiors.

Benedict Winter, Head of Sale comments, ‘This sale achieved fantastic results across the board, selling at 100% and over three times its pre-sale estimate which is testament to both Alexandra Tolstoy’s vision as a tastemaker, but also to the global appeal of British interior decorators Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler’s eponymous style. The strong interest shown throughout the sale and the competitive bidding illustrate the continued demand for beautifully curated objects, works of art and craftsmanship. These pieces will go on to enhance new interiors and settings, particularly resonant at a time when we are all spending more time in our own homes’.
