One of my favourite ways to spend a Saturday is pottering up and down The Pimlico Road; a rather upmarket street of antique shops, art galleries and restaurants tucked behind Chelsea’s Sloane Square.
This small pocket of Belgravia is home to some of London’s finest and most exciting antique shops and galleries. It's a must-visit destination, whether you have an expert eye or just fancy oogling the soughtafter designs, an afternoon spent meandering down the Pimlico Road is an enjoyable one.
Another attraction is the vast array of choice, expect to see everything from very traditional British design of the 17th century right through to the most sought after mid-century Italian design.
I am confident to say there is something for everyone, though perhaps not a price label for everyone. That said, don’t be intimidated by this, see it more as a gallery of inspiration instead of a shopping trip, a chance to look at the most tasteful and unusual furnishings and, in several cases, the chance to meet the designers and craftsmen themselves.
