Working in both Los Angeles and London, Bolan is perfectly placed to comment on changes in contemporary lifestyle and here he picks five trends that we can expect to see in residential projects in the future.


An Invitation to Delight

Founded in Dorset in 1982 by Ken Bolan, and opening in London in 2006, Talisman’s expansive art deco store on New King’s Road has become the go-to emporium for those in search of exceptional design from the last three centuries. Across a series of resplendent rooms dedicated to furniture, lighting, objects and sculpture drawn across the globe, Talisman offers a discovery-driven collection of works wherein personality is as highly prized as provenance, and every piece has its own story to tell.

Internationally acclaimed set designer and art director Anna Burns, collaborated with Talisman for a pop up at their iconic art deco flagship showroom to launch her second textile collection, MATTER.



Made to Inspire

Talisman Bespoke began with twelve signature pieces in 2014. This growing furniture family now extends to 22 members covering a wide selection of glamorous  upholstered, lacquer and brass designs.


Inspired by 20th Century design, Talisman Bespoke ranges from expressive Art Deco through 1950s, to 1970s influenced pieces. Upholstered chairs and sofas in luxurious textiles, classic lacquered or brass commodes, side tables and cabinets look ravishing in both contemporary and antique settings.


Talisman Studio is Open by Appointment

The Talisman collection of iconic stock and trend setting designs is the result of the unique creative ethos of Ken Bolan, Talisman’s owner. The studio is like an Aladdin’s cave, allowing leading designers and collectors the chance to visit a space where the latest arrivals are displayed to the exceptional Talisman standard and imbued with the ‘thrill of the hunt’, at any moment the perfect piece is waiting around the next corner.
