U.K. Luxury Furniture Retailer Opens Flagship Shop in NYC

Timothy Oulton, a luxury furniture and furnishings brand based in the U.K., has debuted a flagship showroom in New York.

The store features a full-scale replica of the command module of NASA’s Apollo 11 spacecraft, and the rest of the 7,170-square-foot space is just as dramatic. The brand operates seven stores in the U.S., including the new Manhattan flagship and 47 retail galleries worldwide.

The company’s in-house design team developed the concept for the new store, and McAlpine Contracting built the new retail gallery. The Apollo 11 module has been converted into a lounge that is also for sale. The store also features a café with a marble bar top, and a three-ton fish tank sits near the front door.

Timothy Oulton first came across the pond to open a retail store in New York  in 2009. The new flagship store sits in a portion of a larger building that was designed and constructed in 1870 in the French Second Empire style by James H. Giles for the retailer Lord & Taylor.
