Say Au Revoir to Your Favourite London Design Store

For those who aren’t familiar with Talisman, it’s a vision of another world: a place of luxurious colour with a sense of theatre and unrivalled quality. Entering Talisman’s doors transports you to an exquisite Bazaar of extraordinary design spanning the last three centuries. 

Talisman’s stock includes furniture, lighting, sculpture and objects from five continents. Whether you’re in the market to buy, or simply like to peruse, Talisman operates as a discovery-driven collection wherein personality is as highly prized as provenance – and every piece comes with its own unique story to tell. 

Ken Bolan of London’s Talisman wishes to pursue new adventures – the nearly forty-year chapter of being a retailer has left him with an appetite to find what lies beyond the 10 to 6. And Bolan’s decision comes at great benefit to loyal and new customers.

To celebrate Bolan’s decision to retire, Talisman, based on New King’s Road, is holding a two-month event in which they are offering 50% off all stock before they close their doors for the last time on 31 July.

It’s all about refreshing teal this summer and these lamps are no exception: the triangular-shaped lucite table lamps are from the 1970s and make an exquisite pair.
