Anyone who scrolls through Instagram has likely already seen the interior of the London Sketch restaurant. Dubbed the world’s most famous and most photographed institution, this includes the signature pink chairs from the equally distinctive pink interior. Good news for those who are fans of the eye-catcher: Sketch has received a makeover and is now putting the chairs up for sale at the auction site. You can bid at surprisingly low prices.
Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift, Bella Hadid, Elton John: These are just a few of the celebrities who have really put their feet under the table. So getting a reservation in Sketch is not so easy. The London restaurant has grown into an absolute hot spot since it opened its doors in 2014. There’s nothing against chef Pierre Gagnaire’s culinary skills, but the Instagram-worthy pink interior has something to offer. Even the cool toilet is a convenient place to take selfies.

However, it is the velvet chairs, best described as giant pink marshmallows, for which the restaurant is most famous. At the time, it was a bold move, because pink didn’t have the same status as it did today when Sketch opened. “I don’t mean to show off, but I totally changed the way people look at pink,” said French-Iranian designer India Mahdavi, who was allowed to wear the store’s clothes in 2014.
Originally the chairs were supposed to last for two years, but thanks to Instagram they gained such cult status that they were eventually allowed to stay in place for six years.
End of an era
But all good songs end. At the beginning of this year, the company underwent a complete renovation and replaced the pink chairs with yellow chairs. Fortunately, the gems were not tossed in the garbage. If you’re willing to pay a few cents, it can soon become part of your home. Because even though it is no longer in perfect condition after six years of extensive use, it has been Auction Site 1st Dibs Spread.

Fourteen chairs are for sale: one is already stained more with food scraps than the other. Think of it as the ultimate proof of her sweet moments – who knows because of Kendall Jenner’s buttocks? Wear it or not, you can bid from a hundred pounds (117 euros converted), bidding is done with heart. If you want to take a chance, you must pass the lowest bid of 599 pounds (702 euros). If you want to have a chair still in top condition, you will have to pay more than 1,217 euros (1,426 euros). Be quick because the auction ends in four days.
