Discover some of the characters, all of them from a different time and discipline, who have lived in this exclusive area of London.

Belgravia as a masterpiece

“Three Studies of Lucian Freud” by Francis Bacon. Francis Bacon didn’t live in Belgravia neighborhood, but behind this great piece of art we find the story of Roman Abramovich, a businessman, politic, art collector and number 15 in the list of the wealthiest man of the world by Frobes magazine. Abramovich lives in the exclusive neighborhood and it is said that he is the mysterious buyer of the Francis Bacon masterpiece, sold out for 142.4 million $, a record price for Sotheby’s. The auction house didn’t publish the name of the mysterious buyer, but there are speculations that point out the Russian millionaire, a lover of Bacon’s work.

Belgravia as a novel

“Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometeus” by Mary Shelley. Mary Shelley, born in London, lived in Belgravia’s neighborhood in the early 19th Century. She is the most recognized writer in Gothic novels and author of one of the greatest novels in history. Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometeus covers topics so modern as the scientific moral or the creation and destruction of life. A very interesting novel to enjoy on a Belgravia Collection upholstered sofa.

Belgravia as a song

“Nocturn Op 9 Nº2” by Fryederych Chopin. The Polish composer lived in Belgravia’s neighborhood in London, where he lived an isolated life. The music of Chopin is characterized to be very delicate and refined, just as our Belgravia Collection.

Belgravia as a film

“Dr.No”, the first James Bond film starred by Sean Connery. The Belgravia neighborhood is intimately linked to James Bond movies because, not only Sean Connery and Ian Fleming (the writer of the original novel in which the movie is based on) lived there, but also Roger Moore (who starred the James Bond movies just after Sean Connery) and Christopher Lee, one of the villains of the movie.

London, what else? Its Belgravia neighborhood is located in the heart of the city, and is one of the richest and most luxurious neighborhoods of the world. Such a residential area surrounded by millionaires—the average home price ranges around 16 million pounds—can only inspire a very urban collection full of sophistication and elegance.
