After 14 years of occupying the Talisman Building, a good friend of mine Ken Bolan was understandably attached to its lovely modernist design. When he purchased it back in 2006, it was due for demolition, so it was a proud moment when he managed to have restored, and saved it for others to enjoy.
When Nick Rustling, founder of Coach House Piano, approached Ken with a view to make it their prime London showroom, he was delighted. The surprise was that Nick entrusted the design of the interior to Ken, and asked if he could use some of his stock and expertise to furnish the showroom. He felt Ken’s objects and art would complement his pianos, and I agree.
