Get the billionaire look
If you’ve ever wanted to live like a billionaire head of state, then check out this mega auction of the contents of late former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri’s 45-bedroom London mansion.
The property was first on the market in 2012, when it was listed for an eye-watering £300m.
But now, 800 separate items from the house are to be auctioned, including fixtures and fittings.
The lots include finely made English and European furniture, paintings, silver, carpets, ceramics and glass.
According to Pro Auction Limited, the house was “decorated in arabesque style by Alberto Pinto’s interior design and decoration agency, features reproductions of the 18th and 19thcentury room settings replete with overscale patterns, bold colour schemes, and sumptuous finishes”.
“This is a live and online auction over the 14/15th July 2015 to be sold from The Millennium Hotel Knightsbrdge Sloane Street, London SW1X 9NU over two days commencing at 10am each day.”
