The Pimlico Road Design District is London’s premier destination for interior design, art, antiques and furniture and is one of the most important shopping areas in London, when you’re searching for the traditional or the contemporary – or a bit of both.
Formed by various streets converging onto the Pimlico Road, this has long been an area where retailers and businesses congregate to cater for the discerning shopper, interior designer, collector and inquisitive bon viveur. Close to London Victoria and Sloane Square, this is a truly unique village and offers the unique opportunity to meet with many of the designers themselves, who specialise in incredible design informed by nature, tradition and future thinking.
Frequented by designers and artisans as well as anyone who enjoys fine craftsmanship, Pimlico Road brings joy to anyone looking to embellish their living space with striking pieces that become the topic of conversation.
When it comes to art, you’ll also be spoilt for choice. Visit Haynes Fine Art, a long-time resident on Pimlico Road, established by Tony Haynes who chose the world of art as a means of sanctuary and passed the tradition to his son. Today, it is the largest provincial fine art dealer in the UK, of quality 19th to 21st century paintings outside of London.
At Cassius on nearby Kinnerton Street, you can revel in the wealth of art and rare books of the 20th and 21st centuries. This is the place to experience a wide range of collectible copies covering the worlds of art, design, photography, poetry, fiction and non-fiction.
