The Wallace Collection, London


For a favourite haunt and an historical fix, the duo behind Cox London, Christopher and Nicola Cox, always venture to The Wallace Collection...

'We visit The Wallace Collection not only to enjoy a bowl of delicious French onion soup but to also savour the finest collection of 17th century ormolu, furniture, paintings and objects. Such quality of design and craftsmanship is still unparalleled today: Chandeliers that were conceived in a time when there was no welding equipment and the finest detail in the bronzes were achieved cold with the use of tiny steel chisels, meticulous hands and many hours. The Wallace Collection is the finest source of inspiration for us when we need to emulate an antique gilded finish or patination, and one of the most perfect time capsules of history in central London.'
