Before joining Mallett, Andrew spent nearly 10 years at Sotheby’s where he was Head of English furniture since 2016. Andrew participated in a number of high-profile sales. In addition, Andrew used his keen eye and his innate talent for assembling unique and distinctive objects and furniture to organize and present the Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse Sale, 2014; now an annual event. Andrew invited over 12 interior designers to design a rooms based around fine and decorative art objects from Sotheby’s inventory, incorporating pieces from the 15th Century through to the 20th Century. He successfully oversaw the layout of the “house” and the marketing of this new concept to Sotheby’s existing client s as well as those new to the auction world. Andrew holds a MA from University of St. Andrews, Scotland and is a member of the Royal Oak Foundation and an alumnus of the Attingham Summer School.
Since 1865, Mallett has sought out the best English and European Furniture and Decorative arts to offer to the market. Mallett’s house style, especially in the 20th century, can be described as on which carefully presents pieces of different styles, periods, and provenance together in one space akin to the collections found in the great country houses of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
