Sale Comments

Join Melissa Penfold's daughter Isabella for an outstanding collection of one-of-a-kind antiques, vintage and artisanal pieces from the Haute Savoie. Isabella has been called 'a rising star in interior design' by The Australian, working with big name brands including Wedgwood to Waterford, Royal Copenhagen, Jo Malone London, Belle, House & Garden and Paris Maison Objet, and as millennials have become one of the biggest global markets in antiques she is delighted to introduce her first edit for Lawsons.

The collection of more than 200 items reflects Isabella's instinctive flair for finding unusual and beautiful pieces while also fulfilling the need to travel and of buying something from a far-off land. Especially the French alps, which are back in fashion. It fulfils that wanderlust. And is a great chance to begin - or add to - a collection of personality pieces with heart and soul, that remind you of a time in your life. Many are investment pieces and not just decorative items. The sale has furniture, ornaments and statement pieces - from mirrors to chandeliers, chairs and commodes, armoires, farmhouse tables, vintage alpine seats, desks, pots, stools, art, copperware, and much more.

Highlights include a remarkable French vitrine that Ralph Lauren wanted for a flagship store - but dipped out on, due to shipping delays. You might be luckier.
There are also never-before-seen handmade plates and modernist vintage-inspired glassware. And it's not often Lawsons gets its hands on Lucy Montgomery custom artisanal hand crafted items (the demand is so intense).

A new generation of homebound shoppers is developing a hunger for antiques and other hard-to-find vintage items online, making this rare sale a must.
"Buying furniture is like buying art or real estate. And because we're home more, we have plenty of time to admire the 18th century table or Louis XIII chair," Isabella Walker-Smith.

"Because of the pandemic, people are treating their homes more like fashion and they want to be more unique, so they are more attracted to vintage and older pieces that can't be purchased en masse." Isabella Walker-Smith
