Diptyque London by Christopher Jenner
The New-Old Design
A Victorian space in London has been renovated to look old and new simultaneously.
The small shop is home to Diptyque â€“ a luxury French parfumier â€“ and is located inside Londonâ€™s Leadenhall Market, well known for its Victorian architecture.
â€˜The space has been designed to complement rather than impose, incorporating the patterning and detail of classic Victorian design,â€™ says London-based designer Christopher Jenner.
Despite being just 11-sq-m, the ceiling rise 4m high to create an airy impression. Oversized library cabinets â€“ accessible by ladder â€“ maximize the spaceâ€™s height, while their exteriors boast a modern interpretation of a Victorian pattern. Jenner has also added bespoke wallpaper, liquid metal story boards and floral marquetry to infuse the space with an aesthetic thatâ€™s best described as new, but old.
