Last month, A-Gent of Style was flattered to be approached by Christie’s to curate and style a space from the catalogue of their November Interiors sales. Being given carte blanche, the task was to scour amongst some 700 objets from their 128-page catalogue and select 25-odd pieces to create a vignette by styling an empty room at their South Kensington showroom two weeks ago before the auction on 17-18 November 2015. An enthralling challenge A-Gent of Style was eager to rise to.

A-Gent of Style
would particularly like to thank Katy Richards, Communications Officers, Christie’s South Kensington, for inviting A-Gent of Style to partake in this fantastic project and for orchestrating the whole project so brilliantly. Many thanks also to my wonderful assistant for the day Katie Carder for being so patient and gracious at all times, the great photographers at Carol Sachs as well as the handlers and the rest of Christie’s wonderful team who helped make this memorable day such a success.
