WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE
PIECE OF FURNITURE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the most expensive piece of furniture in the world?


On July 05 1990 Christie's sold the Badminton Cabinet for $15 million.

The cabinet was commissioned in 1726 by Henry Somerset, the third duke of Beaufort.

It took about 30 craftsmen six years to build the Badminton Cabinet out of ebony, gilt-bronze and pietra dura.

But it doesn't end here.

On December 09 2004 the cabinet went up for auction once again at Christies.

After furious bidding the gavel came down and Dr. Johan Kraeftner, director of the Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna, on behalf of Prinz Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein, had the winning bid on the world's most expensive piece of furniture at 19,045,250.00 or $36,662,106.00 USD.
