Established 30 years ago by Ken Bolan in Dorset, Talisman has expanded since the opening of its flagship London Art Deco store on the New King's Road in 2006. With the launch of a new premises on the Pimlico Road and the re-opening and renovation of its original showroom housed in an Old Brewery in Dorset, all three stores showcase Talisman's signature selection of decorative objects and furniture.
Across all three showrooms, this eclectic mix of European 18th and 19th century antiques, mid-century modern furniture, accessories, lighting and bespoke Talisman designs sit alongside each other. In Dorset the newly landscaped formal and sculptural gardens displays a variety of English and Continental 18th and 19th century statuary and 20th century sculpture.
Talisman has long been in the address books of top fashion and interior designers and through all three showrooms introduces a new audience to its inimitable style and character. In an age of mass production, it is increasingly rare to find such distinctly unique designs spanning three centuries, and rarer still to find them presented with the style, flair and idiosyncratic theatricality that Talisman is renowned for.
