Puritan Values Ltd opened at The Dome in January 1998 occupying the former Drill Hall which was built in 1926 at the height of the roaring 20's. This wonderful historic Art Deco style building which we extensively restored, still echoing the Charleston dances and cocktails of that period. Robert Macgregor and I, a former craftsman who was a big part of Puritan Values in the beginning, installed an original Art Nouveau staircase which was salvaged from a large London tenement in Chelsea, which we restored and modified slightly to fit into the Dome. We also retained the original pine Tongue and Groove panelling which covers the entire interior walls and ceilings of the building and made it what it is today, injecting new life into this run down almost derelict building which was completely run down and even flooded with rain water on the ground floor area when we took it over.
The Dome has over 13,500 square feet of retail space filled to the brim with original pieces making it the largest collection of Arts and Crafts and Decorative and Important Works of Art for sale in the British Isles. There is usually only around 50% of my current stock on the website at anyone time, so if you are looking for something in particular then please browse the website and feel free to e-mail me with your requirements and I will look to see if there is something not on the website that would be perfect for you.
