My item’s condition is too poor” – NOT REALLY! We have an excellent cleaning and refurbishment service when it comes to domestic design.

Do not judge your items or try to renovate them by yourself – simply contact us and we will help you thanks to our long experience. Every year, we save well over a million refurbished designs for new collections. You may be surprised that your item was significantly better than you imagined.

GREATEST INTREST IN HIGH AVERAGE PRICES

Our international customers prefer to invest in a few top items, such as Paavo Tynell’s luminaires, rather than looking for a large number of low-cost bargains. In order to maintain interest in our auctions, we maintain sufficiently high average prices to guarantee demand. Our goal is to keep the current median price around € 10,000, which was the average price of our items sold by the end of 2020.

FEBRUARY 28 – NORDIC DESIGN


Everyone loves high quality Nordic design! This auction has been created from items that we consider to be the best in the Nordic countries.

MARCH 28 – ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN 


Hand in hand - Often strongly connected. The interior has already been part of the Architectural Plan - many of the world-famous design classics were originally designed for just a specific space and interior. Later, these have also been put up for commercial sale, making them known. This auction is especially for those items that originally had some place of their own!

SEPTEMBER 19 – FINNISH DESIGN



Domestic design at its best - this has already become our trademark, as we are also the best-known player in the international market. Warm and homely design - close to pure nature, high quality, innovative, and trendy.

OCTOBER 31 – FINNISH WOMAN ARTISTS


Auction of the Year”. In fact, it should become an annual auction. Finland is the most advanced country in the world - we have a good position for women and the same applies to Finnish women artists. We have a remarkable number of respected and skilled female artists from the 30s and 60s. Even today, Finnish women play a significant role in our society, truly wonderful! This auction will contain creations from female artists only.

DECEMBER 5 – NORDIC CHRISTMAS


YES - Finland is a wonderful Christmas magic country. We have Santa in Korvatunturi and the elves in the workshop (What ?? - Really?). Well, we are not sure about the last-mentionned... but we know that the world's most coveted design treasures, such as Paavo Tynell's “Snowflake” luminaires for TAITO OY and the IDMAN luminaire company, are Finnish top-quality design crafts.

In December 2018, we sold three Paavo Tynell vintage luminaires for a top price of more than EUR 1.1 million abroad for an international collection. This auction is the highlight of the year, where the guarantee breaks records again and sells the rarest Tynell lamps and other significant Finnish items for which you want to ensure the best price on the market! Internationally significant Finnish painting is also suitable for this auction.
