Harrods shows ageless appeal of furnishings with in-store installation

British department store Harrods is putting a spotlight on “Timeless Design” through an in-store exhibit spanning its home and furniture departments.
Coinciding with the London Design Festival, the display features both modern and vintage wares, all of which would be fitting additions to a contemporary home. Becoming a part of the festival enables Harrods to reaffirm its place in the design community, showing that while its brands may look back to their heritages, they are still trendsetters.

In this exhibition Vitra shows the impact Charles and Ray Eames have had on the home furnishing space throughout time, including archival imagery paired with its iconic seating.
“We wanted to highlight the variety of brands stocked at the Harrods Home department and also hero the rich design history these brands have,” said Annalise Fard, director of Home & Design at Harrods, London.
“The Timeless Design exhibition was the perfect way to showcase these credentials to the discerning Harrods customer as well as design enthusiasts visiting London during London Design Festival.”

A led tour of the exhibition will begin at 3pm every day from 19th to 27th September. Visitors should meet at the Timeless Design Exhibit on the Third Floor.
