Luxury Profile: Strauss & Co Specialists


Established in 2008, Strauss & Co is South Africa’s leading fine art auction house and global leader in the South African art market. It is synonymous with top quality art, decorate arts and jewellery. What makes your service luxurious? We source and sell some of the most astonishingly beautiful and intelligently crafted items to be found anywhere in South Africa. They are the finest examples of their kind and are objects to treasure. While they may be enjoyed as luxury objects, they are essential to defining who we are as individuals and as a nation (Emma). How do you define luxury? Works of art and pieces of furniture, jewellery and silver are not necessarily items of luxury, as I see it, because one can achieve pleasure through acquisitions of small and relatively inexpensive objects that are not luxurious in the accepted sense of the word. The pursuit of artistic or aesthetic excellence enhances our lives as human beings (Vanessa).
