Christie’s is delighted to partner with Stephanie Jarvis of the Château Diaries as tastemaker for this autumn’s The Collector sale.

Explore our viewing room to discover the unique rooms inspired by Ms. Jarvis's recent work in the Chateau - highlighted by beautiful pieces from our online auction. Christie’s is incredibly grateful to Pierre Frey for providing stunning fabrics and wallpaper which enabled us to bring Stephanie’s visions for The Collector vignettes to life.
