Weylandts are proud to have launched the first Timothy Oulton Gallery in Africa, exclusive to their Fourways Johannesburg store, on 29 June 2017.
The dedicated 85 sqm gallery is exclusively branded and furnished with Timothy Oulton pieces. The British furniture company is renowned for its luxury & dramatic collections including handcrafted leather furniture, unique lighting pieces and bold home accessorises – an excellent fit for the Weylandts brand. This is the first store-within-a-store concept Weylandts has introduced.
Chris Weylandt holds Timothy Oulton and his design values in high regard. “This is an exciting addition to the Weylandts offering. I have been a fan of the Timothy Oulton range for many years, and am delighted to enhance their presence within our stores with a dedicated showroom in Fourways. The synergy between the two brands has been instrumental in making this decision – we share the same ideals in furniture being of the highest quality, bold, and timeless, and an unrelenting drive to deliver a world class customer experience in-store. I think the Johannesburg market is ready for something different, this is definitely it!”
As well as having access to the full range via the Weylandts store, the collection you can expect to see in the gallery includes elegant chairs, such as the Mimi Quilt dining chair which reinvents a classic 1940s French piece, richly clad in quilted hand-softened leather for a modern, textured look. Dining room tables, such as the Glacier Dining Table, with its ice cold smooth appearance that contrasts with its charred remains of rugged timber, bringing together elements of fire and ice. Beautiful vintage-inspired Lighting designs in aged metal, crystal and glass, and spectacular Mirrors, made from reclaimed wood, leather, metal and glass.
The opening of the Johannesburg gallery marks the next step in Timothy Oulton’s careful expansion. From New York to New Delhi and in the grandeur of Harrods in London, Timothy Oulton now has 40 galleries across the globe in some of the world’s best cities.
MORE ABOUT TIMOTHY OULTON:
Timothy Oulton’s story started back in 1976 with a small antiques shop, owned by Tim’s dad. Profoundly influenced by his love of antiques, his father’s military background, and an inherent affection for British heritage, Tim created an authentic, visionary brand with the deepest integrity and a passion to deliver the extraordinary.
Handcrafted with only the best traditional techniques and fabrications, each Timothy Oulton piece is inspired by the past, but reconceived from a modern perspective, producing uniquely authentic collections which push the boundaries of furniture design.
