Timothy Oulton at Curio
The buzz: After closing its Kim Yam showroom last year, the distinguished British furniture label Timothy Oulton returns to open a new gallery at Dempsey Hill in partnership with local home furnishing store Curio Home.
The vibe: Housed in a historic building once used by the British Army, the eclectic yet refined showroom continues the aesthetic of its old premises—masculine and infused with a dash of glamour and rock and roll. The 1,425 sq. ft. gallery has the feel of an antique collectors’ pad, thanks to the six themed areas that showcase different room concepts—from hip loft style to a classic look—great for homeowners looking for decorating inspirations.
The goods: A luxurious and gorgeous collection of Timothy Oulton’s new and signature pieces, including the tomcat chairs (from $3,385), which won the “Most Innovative Product Design” at the Luxuria 2010 Awards and appeared in movie Black Swan, as well as the aviator range (from $2,965). There are also kitchen, bedding, lighting and vintage-inspired collectibles (from $85), all of which are crafted by hand, with some made using repurposed timbers.
Why you’ll be back: Everything here is exquisitely made, amazingly detailed and heirloom-worthy. Even if the sophisticated furniture is not quite within your budget, drop in the beautifully styled showroom for visual inspiration.
