Lots Road Auctions was established in 1979, by local figure and leading antiques specialist, Roger Ross, the then co-founder of The Furniture Cave on the Kings Road. The company soon made a name for itself in the market by recognising the potential to sell contemporary as well as antique items at affordable prices. This unique combination quickly gained a following with visitors and businesses from all over the U.K. flocking to the Sunday sales to snap up an item or two, and often even furnishing a whole house! The introduction of online bidding, as well as live internet bidding, has only increased its reach and now the company has a vast array of overseas buyers from all over the world.
