Tim Oulton curates a new vintage interiors boutique Rare by Oulton on Hong Kong’s Gough Street with a collection of truly unique antique pieces
As Founder and Creative Director of the British vintage-inspired furniture house Timothy Oulton, Tim Oulton has been actively collecting antiques since his early age when involved in his father's antiques business. Rare by Oulton stocks astounding antiques and showcases many pieces which have inspired Oulton’s furniture designs over the years.
The first Rare boutique in Hong Kong covers two storeys, and features reclaimed English mahogany parquet floors, and an imposing brass door that has been fitted to what was once the entrance to a printing shop at 19 Gough Street in the heart of the city.
The Rare collection includes distinctive, unusual and, of course, rare pieces. A continually rotating stock currently includes a pair of 1890s barber's chairs, a 1940s double life-size training model of a Browning M1919 A4 .30 calibre machine gun, as well as a selection of antique custom Louis Vuitton and Goyard trunks.
