At Material Culture, staff members travel around the world, drawing on three decades of experience of art collection in the field, to hand-pick authentic art, furnishing, and elements for home decor. These traditional arts and crafts, ranging from contemporary to the old and antique, can be attained at their auctions or stores.

Furthermore, they are committed through their work to environmental sustainability and a strengthening of the global community--reusing, repurposing and reclaiming traditional artifacts make up the very fabric of their business.

Many of these principles culminate in the application of the Material Culture staff's knowledge to the auction business, where they can pass along the benefits of affordability and sustainability to their local, arts-rich community, and expand their reach to the society of collectors worldwide. The honed eye of Material Culture Auctioneers will bring together unique sellers and buyers who share a common belief in the importance of the distinctive and the beautiful.

Through these objects of traditional art and utilitarian craft, Material Culture invites its buyers to connect with the fundamental human spirit that animates creation all over the globe.

In essence, taste matters.
