Timothy Oulton is delighted to open its first gallery in Scotland! The new 120m2 (1300 sq ft) gallery is located on the first floor of the prestigious Princes Square shopping centre in the heart of the city. The Grade B listed building dates back to 1841, and following its restoration and transformation into a shopping destination in the 1980s, the site has been awarded several accolades from the Royal Institute of British Architecture. This mix of rich heritage and stylish design makes it the perfect home for Timothy Oulton, who is known for its juxtaposition of tradition and modernity.
Hailing from Manchester, founder Tim Oulton started out in his dad’s antiques shop, before later taking over the business and repositioning it to focus on furniture design. Many of the brand’s most established icons are inspired by the past, but reinvented with modern energy.
Signature pieces on show in the new gallery include: the daring Westminster Jack’dN Brok’n sofa, the effortlessly sophisticated Shabby modular sofa, the iconic Aviator Tomcat chair, the timeless Saddle chair, the floor-standing Rex mirror, and the Odeon chandelier. The Noble Souls sofa collection is also showcased, made using natural feathers and linen, and coloured using only 100% natural vegetable dyes.
The gallery team is ready to offer an array of services, whether you’re seeking a personal tour of the collection, searching for a statement piece of furniture or lighting, or wanting to furnish a whole room (or house!) with the expert guidance of Timothy Oulton’s Room Planning service.
On the opening, Tim Oulton says, “We’ve wanted a store in Scotland for a long time, we’re lucky enough to have some fans of the brand here already, and hopefully we’ll be able to bring something a little bit different to Glasgow. The city has the largest shopping district outside of London so it’s a great location, and the new gallery is in a fantastic high-end period building which suits us perfectly.”
The new gallery is open 7 days a week. You can contact the gallery here or pop in and meet Rachel and her team, they’d be thrilled to welcome you!
