Maybourne Hotel Group champions sustainable sale of stored assets
Maybourne Hotel Group, which owns and manages some of the world’s most legendary hotels, including Claridge’s, The Connaught and The Berkeley, is set to exclusively auction an archive of stored pieces with NCM Auctions.
This collection goes back over one hundred years and features items by leading names in the design world. Three auctions will include antique furniture, one-of-a-kind commissioned pieces, lighting, fixtures, artwork and many other pieces that have graced the group’s three London hotels.
While many companies only select their high value items for sale, Maybourne Hotel Group has taken a refreshingly different approach for the hospitality sector and appointed NCM Auctions to sell its entire collection with a sustainable and circular approach, whilst making this collection available to the public for the very first time.
This direction benefits the local community, small businesses and charities by diverting these pieces from landfill and giving them a second life to be reused, repaired and recycled back into the circular economy, all whilst reducing the storage impact for Maybourne Hotel Group.
Emma McSkelly, founder and CEO of NCM Auctions praised the group for its approach:
“We’re delighted to work with Maybourne Hotel Group and its legendary hotel brands. The group came to us with this opportunity and we are working closely with them to find a sustainable solution to a growing storage burden – a build-up of excess assets but with real provenance and authenticity. There are many iconic pieces that will be of huge interest to seasoned collectors. At the same time, individuals, small enterprises and the third sector are going to reap the rewards of this massive and unrivalled collection being made available to the public.”
The collection will be sold across three exclusive online auctions, the first of which will be a live auction taking place on the 27th July 2023.
