diptyque london store by christopher jenner




UK-based designer christopher jenner has conceived a new store luxury fragrance brand for diptyque paris. situated in london’s leadenhall market – an area which is known for its victorian architecture – jenner has developed a store space which is influenced by english patterning and french luxury.


the product displays are oversized library cabinets furnished with multi-layered classic mouldings and fitted with cupboards that are embellished with english brass, stained-glass fretwork and antique mirror. the furniture pieces installed within are made from walnut complemented by gothic revival wallcoverings, while etched brass journey panels frame the interior’s traditional victorian pressed ceiling from which a diffused halo of light is suspended over the dorset basalt floor.

    I know there’s some product hidden in there somewhere…

  • The product is plainly visible.
    Too bad so is the point of sale system.
    The sales person could use and iPhone that they would keep in the pocket of their lab coat.

  • Or perhaps a ‘steam punked’ LCD could sit there?

  • Love it! Tired of boring clean walls and minimalist spaces. Love looking around and discovering intesting details around every corner. I could spend hours here. Love the light, too.

  • This is wonderful! If you know anything about Diptyque brand, this makes perfect sense, especially for a London store. There\’s so much textural interest and really well-considered use of colour. A kind of quirky luxe that doesn\’t take itself too seriously. The mix of old and new is quite on-point. @Gpanderson: I don\’t think a sales associate here would be wearing a lab coat, that\’s more Clinique circa 1990. It is interesting that image came to you, because this French brand has a fascination with the romance of an English apothecary, so it seems they\’re doing something right. A consultant station is normal for a small boutique such as this. Where would an untethered SA stand?
