Contents of the Hempel hotel to be sold at auction

The entire contents of one of London's iconic boutique hotels, the Hempel, are to be auctioned for sale.

Following its acquisition for £33m earlier this year by property developer British Land, the property in Notting Hall is to be converted into luxury flats.

As a result, there is now the rare opportunity to purchase every item of furniture, fitments and furnishings from the 43-bedroom hotel hotel which was renowned for its minimalist Zen-style décor created by its founder Anouska Hempel in 1997.

As well as a plethora of Palecek bedroom furniture, Hypnos beds, flat screen TVs and mini-bar fridges, a wide selection of antique Chinese ceramics which graced the hotel's foyer are up for grabs.

All the contents of the kitchen, including a Chef King heavy duty commercial induction cooker, Pacojet food processor and Thermomix super fast food blender, are to be sold, along with a full range of Churchill Alchemy tableware.

The Hempel was frequently used for fashion shoots, while its gardens notably featured in the film Notting Hill as the location for the wedding between two characters played by Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.

The sale will be conducted live and online at 10.30am on 12 September by Pro-Auction, following two preview days on 10 and 11 September from 10am to 6pm.
