The Johnston Collection
The Johnston Collection is a Fine and Decorative Arts Museum in East Melbourne, Australia.
It is no ordinary museum with roped off exhibits, but presents an astonishing and diverse collection arranged in the English Country House Style.
The collection is the legacy of William Robert Johnston, an antique dealer and collector of beautiful things. He loved objects that were unusual and visually arresting. He had a sharp eye for the beauty created by the harmonious balance of line and form. He delighted in arranging objects together to create extraordinary interiors. It is pure indulgence to be amongst the Collection.
The W R Johnston Trust was established in 1986 to preserve and develop this unique collection.
