Penhaligon's by Christopher Jenner
Christopher Jenner has realised a new interior for the English fragrance house Penhaligon’s on Regent Street, London. Founded in 1870 by William Penhaligon, the brand still makes their perfumes in England using rare ingredients.
The design was inspired by ‘jaunty Edwardian eccentricity’, says Jenner. ‘In the arts the Aesthetic movement expressed a committed support of aesthetic values over socio-political thinking, renouncing projected dictation and favouring values of ‘beauty'. This design is an assembly of these values created via pattern, form and texture in a synthesis of traditional English handcraft and high-tech manufacturing’.
Materials include patterned wood panelling, laser-cut brass fretwork, sandblasted mirrors, Chesterfield-style walls, and a patterned cement tile floor.
Brighton Pavilion Onion Dome chandeliers are suspended from the ceiling, and within the padded walls, light boxes showcase the perfume bottles.
