The king of Tottenham Court Road’s decor shops has unveiled an heir to the throne: a fabulous new lighting den in W2. The 200-year-old brand is styling its new branch as a concept store, but much of what’s on offer here – an interior design team, a bespoke joinery service, a vast lighting range – speaks of old-fashioned retail excellence rather than innovation. A glorious art deco cinema building is a fine setting for the stylish store, and it’s an ambitious acquisition in a market where so many are focusing online. That said, we’re told a flash new website will follow too.
There's no shortage of new shops popping up all over the capital, but keeping track of them is another matter. That's why we've sought out the best of the bunch so you can spend less time scouring the net and more time browsing the racks.
