The Timothy Oulton store is a design wonderland
Before this past June, it was understandable if your design palate was bored whenever you went furniture shopping. And it’s likely the only thing you left the store with was a furrowed brow.
But now you can say cheerio to your decor doldrums.
U.K. furniture designer Timothy Oulton has landed in Dallas, opening his first stand-alone store in the country here at North Central Expressway and Knox-Henderson Road.
With a best-in-class credo, Oulton strives to make his work distinct and unique; pieces are exquisitely handcrafted and extraordinary attention is placed on their details.
A visit to Oulton’s showroom will jar even the most somnambulant shopper. First, a large aquarium full of fish swimming around a yellow submarine greets you at the entrance. And the experience gets slightly more surreal from there. From the Union Jack–covered Bensington footstool ($1,695) to a Lone Star flag–emblazoned trunk ($1,295), it is obvious the designer pledges his allegiance to all things antique.
Other eye-catching pieces include the Gyro & Crystal table lamp ($1,195), all but iconic with its classic-yet-functional mash-up. And on the minimalist end of the design spectrum, Oulton’s Aviator Hercules bookcase ($2,195) will make any bibliophile batty with desire.
This is one British invasion we can definitely embrace.
