We'll also be producing an interactive digital catalogue. All lots will be instore and online from the 13th of November. Highlights include two rare and exceptional designs from influential American designer Milo Baughman which demonstrate a commitment to luxury balanced with an understated, modernist ethic.

The interiors concept is completed by a suite of modern art entries and highly crafted Oceanic objects.
