Peter Petrou have been established in London for 40 years and the accumulation of knowledge over that time has lead to a gradual evolution of the business, which encompasses works of art, sculpture and design from many cultures and periods in history.
A particular interest, and one that has contributed to this growth, is the influence of one population upon another and the resulting cross-cultural design, which is frequently vibrant and unusual.
Individually, the works of art sold by Peter Petrou are recognized for their exceptional design, execution and artistic endeavour (there have been a number of museum sales over the years).
The particular strength of the business, which can be seen at the fairs where they exhibit, is incorporating this diverse collection with mid-20th-century and contemporary cutting edge design.
This juxtaposition enables clients to nurture their natural desire to expand areas of interest and incorporate ‘new’ ideas.
