Astor Place Opens 5000sq ft Showroom at Alfies

This autumn Astor Place opens to the public with a new 5000sq ft showroom at Alfies Antique Market.  After 20 years sourcing rare pieces for an exclusive client list, they now have a permanent base offering high end 20th century design.

Astor Place offers a contrasting shopping experience to the close knit warren of shops on the upper floors of Alfies.  The expansive space presents a luxury edit of vintage and bespoke furniture, with designer pieces displayed alongside a range of decorative accessories.  A collection of vibrant vintage movie posters and art adorn the walls.

Iconic pieces include a pair of fabulous 1960s swivel tub chairs by Leon Rosen for Pace and a pair of Brutalist form sculptural lamps by Maurizio Tempestini (pictured above).

“We are enamored with vintage objects, beautiful shapes and unusual finds. What matters to us is the history, the personality and the craftsmanship.”

The arrival of Astor Place reinforces Alfies’ position as one of the world’s leading destinations for the very best in original 20th Century furniture and accessories.  With more 20th century dealers than anywhere else in London and with a diverse collection of vintage design rivaling any modern design showroom, savvy collectors are coming to Alfies for pieces to love and invest in.  

Visit Astor Place from Tuesday - Saturday from 10am-6pm.
