Perfect Pairings: A Home for the Collector and the Collection

Exploring the relative values of passion assets across a selection of Christie’s art and real estate offerings


High-value assets are not only investments, but are often acquisitions of passion and lifestyle. Offered by Christie’s and our Affiliate network, these highly sought-after assets showcase the deep connections between extraordinary real estate, fine art, and luxury goods. From an artfully designed lakefront villa—with a sumptuous lake vista painting to match—to a visionary rose-toned waterfront estate paired with a glittering yacht painting, our Perfect Pairings for the international collector are both rare and beautiful.
