The judging panel said that Timothy Oulton had ‘stood out for its energy and compelling bravura’, and takes an ‘outrageously original approach to retail’.

‘This is the absolute antidote to Amazon,’ said one judge, adding that the brand ‘has used creative design to transform a retail space into an astonishing experience full of stories.’
Timothy Oulton also received the Highly Commended award in the Luxury Retailer of the Year category, with judges noting that the company ‘knocked nearly all the other retailers out of the water and gave its customers experience, experience, and then more experience’.
Bluebird is Timothy Oulton’s first standalone gallery in London, showcasing the very best of the brand’s eclectic furniture and interiors collections in an inspiring space that creates a delightful sensory overload.
