The newly renovated department on the third floor is now known simply as Harrods Interiors. It was thoughtfully designed by Virgile + Partners with the aim to deliver a smoother customer journey while giving products a stronger visual presence. Customers can expect to find an immersive wonderland of homeware brands and services, featuring exclusive products by leading designers, personalisation services, and site visits to aid specialist deliveries.
The transformation also includes the store’s own in-house studio, Harrods Interior Design, headed up by Letitia Fitzgibbon, which offers a range of expert design services, from styling advice to complete refurbishment options.
In keeping with Harrods’ reputation for unrivalled brand portfolios, it will continue to offer home accessories lines from design powerhouses such as Dior, Hermès, Fornasetti, L’Objet, Lalique, Versace Home and Richard Ginori, alongside much-loved brands such as Wedgwood and Waterford. Meanwhile, a dedicated home-fragrance room will offer exclusives from household brands such as Roja, L’Artisan and Dr Vranjes.
In Kitchen & Household, there are cooking and domestic products centred around a fully functional kitchen designed by Linley. This lively and interactive space will showcase demonstrations of a selection of product ranges, as well as cooking demonstrations by the store’s own skilled chefs.
In Luxury Linens, customers will find the Bespoke Linens Studio, where they can custom-design and monogram their own linens, featuring brands such as Frette, Celso de Lemos and Yves Delorme Couture. Those in search of contemporary furniture will find BoConcept, Cattelan Italia, Porada and Gallotti & Radice, while bed brands include Savoir, Hästens, Vispring, Colunex and Jensen.
'The aim for Harrods Interiors is to give a consistent identity to the department while offering our customers a truly inspirational shopping experience. We are thrilled to launch this edit of furniture and home accessories, from classic to contemporary design, as well as to introduce a variety of personalisation and interior design services,' says Chris Dee, Director of Food & Home at Harrods.
At the heart of the department is Harrods Interior Design, a unique full-scope interior and architecture design studio. From heritage-listed residential properties to international large-scale designs, the team are skilled in them all while encapsulating the considered elegance Harrods is renowned for.
Also new is an Interior Styling Service whereby interior design experts work closely with clients to advise on the finishing touches to their home using the multitude of prestigious brands at their fingertips. The Harrods Interior Design studio also houses The Fabric Library, which displays the world’s finest fabrics for clients to browse and offers a full upholstery installation service.
'We have seen a real desire from clients to work with experts who not only inspire them but can also be trusted to deliver a high-quality service. Our interior design team has the support of all the luxury brands in the department at their disposal, alongside relationships with international suppliers and craftsmen. This resource, together with their multidisciplinary design expertise, ensures each project is delivered to the best possible standard,' says Letitia Fitzgibbon, Head of Harrods Interior Design.
