Robert Kime: The Personal Collection | Wednesday 4, Thursday 5 & Friday 6 October 2023
Dreweatts has the great honour to be holding the auction 'Robert Kime: The Personal Collection.' Known the world over as a titan of design and the ‘great assembler’ of beautiful things, Robert Kime’s unique eye and aesthetic sensibility led him to become one of the leading design figures of his generation. The culmination of Robert’s life-time of collecting will form a three-day auction, charting his passion, curiosity and delight in beautiful things through the contents of his homes in London and Provence.
What made a Robert Kime interior so distinctive and desirable was that it did not appear to be professionally decorated. Embracing unexpected items from unusual sources was one of the keys to Robert’s style, the incorporation of the everyday or the eclectic alongside the elegant, though not necessarily the expensive. He strived to create a place that conveyed both beauty and ease. You can now explore the rooms of Robert's London home.
