Luxury show home furniture on Auction tonight

AuctionXchange in Sandyfor are tonight selling off the contents of a luxury South Dublin showhouse - head down their for 6pm to grab a bargain.


It’s been a few years since auction rooms were chock full of unwanted show home furniture, going for song. Not since the collapse of the boom has luxury studded upholstry and moderny pop art been so available.

But tonight AuctionXchange in Sandyford are having what would seem a throwback special. They have a great auction every Tuesday night with random quirky items of homewares, furniture and commercial equipment (AuctionXchange). But tonight they have a very special collection.

Hillhouse Show Homes

The luxury Hillhouse development in Rathmichael has recently been completed and mostly sold. And obviously someone didn’t what the stunning brand new show home furniture so they’ve dumped it into the AuctionXchange auction (there may have been a bank involved or something else going on – we don’t want to speculate!).  You can see more on Hillhouse here…

Now their loss is your gain. Here’s what you could pick up for a bargain tonight:
