Behind the Scenes Staging the Dec 14 - 17 DTLA Showroom Sale


The Hughes Estate Sales DTLA Showroom is overflowing with fresh stock! We've been bringing in daily deliveries to the Showroom leading up to our December 14 - 17, 2017 Sale.

Our appraisers have been busy selecting items from estates where an onsite estate sale is not possible - gated communities, condos, houses not suited for crowds, and storage units - and packing up art, furniture, jewelry, and décor to sell in our Showroom.

Boxes like these include smaller valuables, silver, china, and decorative arts:





Unpacking and staging the Showroom happens throughout the month leading up to our Thursday evening opening.

I'm an explorer at heart - unearthing new treasures is innately satisfying.

Since we're staging multiple estates together in one Showroom, our team artfully mixes modern, contemporary, and traditional items.

When staging is complete, all art will be hung, furniture cleaned and unwrapped, and our Showroom will look like a series of intimate interiors full of charm and character.

We love rolling up the doors Thursday night on a beautifully staged Showroom and seeing our team's talent and hard work appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming sale!
