For the last twelve months we have been quietly designing our own home … the Staffan Tollgard Design Store. Now the fit out has begun and by week three the mezzanine has been built and today the concrete floor was poured. Our design story is literally being set in stone. The doors will open in September.
It took us a long time to find the perfect location for our move into retail but we think Grosvenor Waterside is a great fit. Situated in the very central Belgravia /Pimlico/ Chelsea / Victoria nexus and just around the corner from the great and the good of British design (David Linley, Joanna Wood, Luke Irwin and Nicky Haslam are a few of our very impressive neighbours), Grosvenor Waterside gives us a view of the water and over 3000 square feet of retail space. What we love about the flagship space is its volume: six metre ceilings and 20 metres of floor to ceiling windows offer an amazing backdrop for the very carefully curated items of furniture, lighting, rugs, fabrics and accessories we have selected from nearly ten years of working in the design industry.
We are passionate about the brands we will represent at the store. An alphabetized high-lights is a roll-call of great contemporary design: 1882, Alternative, Armani/Roca, Autoban, Baobab, Bemboka, Bocci, Cattelan Italia, Ceccotti Collezioni, Chilewich, Contardi, Driade, Eggersmann,Emmemobili, EOQ, Flexform, Flos, Jude Cassidy, Kasthall, Kymo, Laufen, LEMA, Linteloo, Meridiani, Mood, Neri & Hu, Porada, Porro, Stellarworks, The Rug Company, Verden Linteloo and When Objects Work … these are the very best of the best and we are extremely proud to showcase their work.
The mezzanine space also houses our design teams so that we are able to offer retail and trade clients a comprehensive interior design service. We are really looking forward to opening our doors and bringing our brand of bold, contemporary design to a brand new neighbourhood. Please come and visit.
