Timothy Oulton builds a realm of reconnection on the King’s Road with first ‘Noble Souls’ showroom

Sloane Stanley are pleased to announce that British furniture and interiors company Timothy Oulton will be launching the first dedicated Noble Souls showroom at 324-326 Kings Road, further enhancing the brand’s global network in antiques and premium handcrafted furniture, which includes its recent acquisition of Sofa Workshop from DFS Limited.

Launching on November 27, the 1658 sq ft showroom aims to reconnect people with original makers and natural materials through a unique range of sofas and furniture, beautifully handcrafted using ancient techniques. The new space is a close neighbour of Timothy Oulton’s 7,200 sq ft global flagship at 350 Kings Road, which has been part of the Chelsea community since 2018.

Designed around epic comfort and sensory joy, the Noble Souls collection features sofas made from 100% natural vegetable dyes, feathers and natural linens, supported by a select range of furniture and lighting in natural materials such as reclaimed timber, hand blown glass and vegetable dyed leather.

Tim Oulton, Founder and Creative Director of Timothy Oulton said: “There has been such a strong focus on natural materials and sustainable living, Noble Souls celebrates handmade time-honoured techniques passed down through generations with natural materials transporting us back to simpler times and allowing us to rediscover the making process.  As we expand our brand, we are excited to open the first bricks and mortar Noble Souls store on the King’s Road, which has been a much-loved home for our brand.  We look forward to continuing our success in the heart of Chelsea.”

Commenting on the news, Hannah Grievson, Property Director at Sloane Stanley added: “Since Timothy Oulton opened their largest showroom to date on the King’s Road, at the Bluebird Chelsea, we have been eagerly watching their progress as they expand their brand offering.  We are proud to have been part of their journey as they now launch Noble Souls, increasing their presence in Chelsea’s design quarter.  The sophisticated King’s Road showroom is a popular destination, and with this new opening the brand will now be able to offer its unique handcrafted designs to an even wider audience within Chelsea and beyond.”
