Market

Acting as functional pieces of art, antique furniture consistently maintains a strong position in the marketplace. Although the fashion for antique furnishings competes with the current trend for modernism, the market remains stable, and the last decade has seen record-breaking prices for top pieces.

In 2004, the Badminton Cabinet was auctioned by Christie's for a record-breaking £19 million, making it the most expensive piece of furniture ever sold. Measuring over 14 feet high, this ornate Italian cabinet dates from 1726 and was last sold in 1990 for £9.6 million, meaning that in less than 15 years, it more than doubled in value.

 In December 2010, Sotheby's London sold The Harrington Commode, likely created by Thomas Chippendale, for £3.8 million, and in July 2013, Christie’s London auctioned off a pair of Ogden Mills armoires dubbed the Armoires A Sept Medailles for £1.4 million.
