Aspleys at The Lanesborough

Last month we filled you in about The Lanesborough’s imminent closure, as it preps for a top-to-bottom overhaul that’s expected to last one year. The Knightsbridge hotel has a devoted following of clients who appreciate the 24-hour personal butler service, wake-up calls with coffee, and complimentary in-room business service (like in-room laptops). Fans of the luxury London hotel can pick up a piece of The Lanesborough to take home with them, when the official auction gets underway in December. The five-day sale will sell furniture room by room including the crème de la crème- The Lanesborough Suite.

To quote the official website (www.thelanesboroughsale.com), “The Lanesborough captures the grace of the Regency period…We offer an unprecedented opportunity to acquire by auction elegant furnishings, artefacts, and decorations sure to appeal to collectors and connoisseurs.” We’ve got our eye on items from Apsleys, the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant from chef Heinz Beck.
