Press release -

Bruun Rasmussen x &Tradition = “Home of a Collector”

During 3 Days of Design, Bruun Rasmussen and &Tradition welcome you to the Lindencrone Mansion in Copenhagen, where you can experience the exhibition "Home of a Collector".

Passion, tradition and renewal are combined in the exhibition, where you get an inspiring insight into a dedicated collector's home. Here you can experience a curated selection of &Tradition's most popular furniture pieces alongside design icons, art and antiques up for auction at Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneer's Live Auction in September. The collaboration reflects the two companies' complementary values and builds a bridge between the past and present.

At Bruun Rasmussen, we meet passionate collectors of everything from historical antiques to modern design classics. Today, we are experiencing a new worldwide trend where many of our loyal customers have moved from collecting items within specific categories to instead creating a personal mix of furniture, arts and crafts from different time periods to tell their own unique story. That is why it is so meaningful for us to join forces with &Tradition to highlight the magic that can occur in a real collector's home,” says Alexa Bruun Rasmussen, Director of Branding and 3rd generation at Bruun Rasmussen.

&Tradition's founder and CEO, Martin Kornbek Hansen, agrees:

""Home of a Collector" gives design enthusiasts a unique opportunity to experience beloved design pieces in the atmosphere of a private home. We are proud to join our creative forces with a company whose passion for the collection of unique objects reflects our own belief that a home should be filled with distinctive designs from both the past and the present.”

Opening hours, talks and cocktail hours

The exhibition "Home of a Collector" can be experienced on 3 and 4 September between 10 am and 6 pm and on 5 September between 10 am and 5 pm. Everyone is welcome.

Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers is one of Scandinavia’s leading international auction houses, and one of Denmark’s oldest. It all started on 6 October 1948, when Arne Bruun Rasmussen conducted the first traditional auction in the saleroom at Bredgade 33 in Copenhagen. Today, Jesper Bruun Rasmussen stands at the helm of the family-run business together with the third generation of the family, his son Frederik and daughter Alexa, and the company’s CEO Jakob Dupont.

In 2004, the first Online Auction was launched, and today the auction house has expanded to include departments in Copenhagen and Aarhus and representations in Sweden, Germany, England, France, Belgium, Luxemburg, Spain, Italy, Thailand and the US. About 100,000 lots are put up for auction each year at the Live Auctions, the daily Online Auctions and - the latest edition - Direct Auctions. Here you can bid on everything from art, antiques, modern design and jewellery to books, coins, stamps, wine and weaponry.

Bruun Rasmussen – Part of the Bonhams Network

"Going once, going twice. Sold to the lady in the front row". For more than 75 years, the auction house Bruun Rasmussen has sold art, antiques, design, jewellery, wristwatches and collector’s items such as wine, books, coins and stamps. After having been family-owned through three generations, we were bought in 2022 by the English auction house Bonhams, which was founded in England in 1793 and is today one of the world's leading auction houses. We are now part of an international network with a global reach, and we present and sell art where it makes the most sense in relation to potential buyers. This also means that through the network we offer more than 60 categories of items at our auctions.

Art and credibility are at the heart of everything we do. The work in the auction house places great demands on our knowledge of art and trends on the market. Our specialists are the most experienced and competent in the industry, and in the Bonhams Network we share knowledge and communicate across national borders with a large number of international specialists. This way, we can provide the best valuation and advice that have become our trademark – and thereby offer the best lots from all categories and achieve the highest hammer prices for the benefit of our customers.

Tradition and innovation go hand in hand. At Bruun Rasmussen, we are one of Europe's most modern and digital auction houses, and it is only natural for us to adapt to changes in the market. Innovation is part of our DNA, while we are also deeply rooted in our history. The foundation of the company rests on our two types of auctions – Online Auction and Live Auction. Every week we put more than a thousand lots up for auction at, and several times a year we present exclusive lots live in our saleroom. We are proud to sell art and design in virtually every category and price range to and for people all over the world who are driven by the same passion as we are.

We want to be a living centre of culture, and since the autumn of 2023, we have been located in Lyngby north of Copenhagen in a new, modern domicile. Here you can not only explore among all the art objects on display and bid on the exciting auctions, you can also meet our specialists, get an estimate on your own items, consign them for auction, listen to exciting lectures and participate in cultural events. We also have branches in Aarhus and Glostrup and regularly go on valuation trips around Denmark and abroad. Our goal is to always be available and for everyone to have a good experience in our auction house.

Welcome to Bruun Rasmussen – we can help you make a good purchase or achieve a great sale!
