TASCHEN Claridge’s

Regal decadence defines TASCHEN's handsome new Mayfair space, sitting proud in iconic Claridge’s...

On the corner of Brook Street and Davies Street in the heart of Mayfair, Claridge’s packs serious clout as one of the world’s most iconic five-star hotels. Sharing that same storied building, German art book publisher TASCHEN have just opened their second London outpost, and 14th international retail space.

Naturally, it’s a must-see for all fans of glossy coffee-table tomes, and limited collector’s editions and prints, the publisher — who have called upon esteemed designers like Philippe Starck and Marc Newson to put together their spaces and flagships — offering a a curated selection of sought-after titles that include David Hockney’s recently published SUMO-sized retrospective, and signed prints from revered art photographers like Marvin E. Newman, Ellen von Unwerth, and Mick Rock.

Located in such illustrious surrounds, customers at the bookstore-gallery can expect white walls flanked by editioned artwork; handsome parquet flooring; opulent red velvet; and a touch of Art Deco lighting, all harmonious throughout a petite but never diminutive space. In short, TASCHEN Claridge’s may be short in stature, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in decadent style. Oodles of it.
