Fortnum and Mason

Fortnum & Mason of Piccadilly, London, first opened its doors in 1707. Its famous façade and the unique interior that features wonderful classical paintings and murals have made it one of the world's most famous stores.

When a major refurbishment was undertaken, it was important that all of the contractors could demonstrate a track record in providing products and a service that respected the character of the building.

Charles Laing & Sons Ltd were commissioned to recreate the central staircase. The intricate ballisters were hand cast in iron that was later hidden beneath gold leaf and set off by the mahogany and red carpet finishes.
