Talisman is not so much an antiques emporium as the glamorous intersection between antiques, interiors and fashion, enthusiastically and joyfully championing pieces that are more about personality than provenance.

About Talisman


Talisman invites you on a journey through some of the finest creative minds of the 20th-century. Presenting works by many of the world’s most treasured designers  – era-defining thinkers, makers, engineers and artists such as Paul Evans, Karl Springer, Pierre Cardin and Aldo Tura Aldo. The collection explores how international visionaries have shaped aesthetics, experimented with forms, colours and materials, and created beauty that has lasted through the decades.

Talisman’s inspiring range of furniture, furnishings and one-of-a-kind design pieces is also available for hire. Whether it’s a short-term loan of a single piece for a photoshoot, kitting out a showroom or creating a semi-permanent installation in a commercial space, Talisman is always delighted to assist.
