Standalone Time for Timothy Oulton

Follow us

Timothy Oulton is an upscale British furniture brand with an irreverent take on what that means. Practically, this can mean anything from Union flag-style leather sofas to chromed armchairs.

To date its products have been available via host stores, but now it has a standalone boutique in central Glasgow’s historic Princes Square (a red stone edifice dating from 1841 where the central courtyard was roofed and shop units were created within). This is a relatively small space, it measures 120 sqm, but the use of chandeliers, neon and table lights, make it feel bigger than it is and also provide distinct, semi-discrete settings for the merchandise, making the whole of the interior feel punk-moody.

It is also a temple for those who worship at the altar of visual merchandising. Nothing has been left to chance, from the circle of tennis rackets behind the two-seater leather-covered bar, to the choice of ‘coffee table’ books strewn around the place.

Prices are not cheap, but the environment itself provides an alert about what to expect.
