For over 30 years, Talisman has offered a vision of another world – a place of luxurious colour, a sense of theatre and peerless quality. Founded in Dorset in 1982 by Ken Bolan, and transplanted into 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, objets and sculpture drawn from five continents, 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.
