Talisman's selection of antique furniture is indisputably one of the best in London, making it the first stop on any quest for rare and completely unique collectibles and furniture.

The store also offers a bespoke furniture line and handles even the most difficult restorations with care.

Charles Edwards specializes in reproductions and the results are modern and elegant lights, bases and chandeliers that give an edgy and sleek nod to the best designs of the past. Great for both indoor and outdoor fixtures, their star lamps are a favorite.

The finds here are beautifully restored and the owners, brothers Marc and Kevin Weaver, take special care with the display of each object. It’s not about period, it’s more about how well things go together in a space—and their displays, almost like vignettes, are both inspiring and stunning. Every few months, Guinevere changes its windows and those alone are worth the visit.
