Set the Stage for Glamorous Entertaining This Festive Season
Set the stage for glamorous entertaining with Timothy Oulton’s subversive take on luxury.
Recapture the magic and romance of glamour’s golden age with award-winning British furniture and lifestyle brand Timothy Oulton. Think lavish upholstery, dramatic lighting and sensuous textures. It all sets the stage for warm and inviting spaces, sumptuous entertaining and decadent candle-lit dinner parties that carry on into the night.
A single statement piece has the power to completely transform a room, and perhaps few more so than Timothy Oulton’s prized Rex Mirror, loved by celebrities and interior designers. Rex doesn’t reveal its secrets all at once. In fact, the beauty of this mirror demands close study and utmost attention. Creating a harmony of materials that wouldn’t often be put together, Rex is handcrafted from a raw iron frame, bearing the marks of the welder’s torch, contrasted with sparkling optical glass prisms. Light from concealed bulbs is refracted through each prism, creating a perpetual dance of shimmer and sparkle.
Rex takes its name from the historic Rex cinema in Berkhamsted; a 1930s Art Deco gem boasting a beautiful auditorium with dramatic lighting. Saved from dereliction by a local entrepreneur, the cinema was restored to its former glory in 2004. Timothy Oulton’s Rex Collection encompasses a full range of lighting and lit furniture including the spectacular Rex Rectangular Dining Table, handcrafted with 550 glass prisms, and the Rex Bio Hazard Bar Cabinet, perfect for the season of hosting and toasting.
When it comes to wining and dining, English gentry meets abstract art in the luxurious Faded & Degraded velvet collection, available on selected sofas and dining chairs. Original designs include ‘Melting Paisley’ velvet, pairing a background of faded Victorian damask wallpaper with overlaid splatters of blue ink.
With home bars experiencing a renaissance, a further shot of glamour is served up in Timothy Oulton’s speakeasy-inspired bar collection. Cocktail hour turns into golden hour with the decadent Shimmer Bar Cabinet, handcrafted from brass and glass with internal-lit shelving bathing the whole piece in a soft glow. For a more covert take on glamour, the Hudson bar and cabinetry collection features streamlined forms wrapped in a stealthy cloak of Fury leather.
