Sotheby’s has been uniting collectors with world-class works of art since 1744. Sotheby’s became the first international auction house when it expanded from London to New York (1955), the first to conduct sales in Hong Kong (1973), India (1992) and France (2001), and the first international fine art auction house in China (2012). Today, Sotheby’s presents auctions in ten different salesrooms, including New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris, and Sotheby’s Bid Now programme allows visitors to view all auctions live online and place bids from anywhere in the world. Sotheby’s offers collectors the resources of Sotheby’s Financial Services, the world’s only full-service art financing company, as well as the collection advisory services of its subsidiary, Art Agency, Partners . Sotheby’s presents private sale opportunities in more than 70 categories, including S|2, the gallery arm of Sotheby's Global Fine Art Division, and two retail businesses, Sotheby’s Diamonds and Sotheby’s Wine . In February 2015, RM Auctions formed a strategic partnership with Sotheby’s to become RM Sotheby’s , the world’s largest auction house for investment-quality automobiles. Sotheby’s has a global network of 80 offices in 40 countries and is the oldest company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (BID).
"Great experience from start to finish!"
What do you do with beautiful designer furniture, accessories, and artwork when it’s time to move on? That’s precisely the problem we set out to solve when we first launched Sotheby’s Home (formerly Viyet) in 2013. What started as a curated consignment marketplace quickly became the preferred platform for design aficionados to buy and sell the best in pre-owned décor, antiques, and so much more. Our evolution from start-up to established company caught the attention of Sotheby’s, which acquired Viyet in February 2018.
In October 2018, Viyet became Sotheby’s Home, building upon the success of the Viyet marketplace and reflecting our continued focus on new categories, including prints, photography and contemporary art.
Though our name has changed, our commitment to design leadership, extraordinary customer service, and technological innovation remains the same. As Sotheby’s Home, we continue to be the premier online consignment platform for buying and selling exceptional pre-owned furniture, antiques, vintage pieces, art, lighting, collections, and everything else found in stylish homes across the country.
