It is noteworthy that Timothy Oulton himself, the son of an antique dealer, did not want to deal with interiors and furniture. He intended to become a banker, but after working for some time in his father’s company, he became interested in creating his own pieces of furniture, quickly succeeding in this field..
What about Timothy Oulton’s interiors? They are very British, the English style can be traced at once in different details, be it a sofa with a flag on the upholstery, massive armchairs, dark wood, classic chandeliers with crystal pendants …
You can also note the love of travel – hemp, chests, suitcases instead of coffee tables, oars and lifebuoys on the walls. It is also impossible not to notice the designer’s commitment to antiques that are given new life. This is not surprising, because Oulton is a hereditary antiquarian.
The designer himself admits that he loves vintage things and takes the most valuable from the past in order to dress it with modernity. Well, Timothy Oulton’s interiors are really hard to compare with anything else. Some consider them rather gloomy and old-fashioned, others admire the combination of original details and eclecticism, but no one can indifferently pass by.
