Villeroy & Boch's London flagship

Tablewear retailer and manufacturer Villeroy & Boch is to open a flagship store in central London at the end of next month.

The 140 sq m store in the Duke of York development on King's Road will be the retailer's second standalone shop. There is already one at Bluewater.

Villeroy & Boch will also increase its concession at Harrods by 25 per cent to 265 sq m and has agreed to take space in Allders, Bromley, and House of Fraser's Meadowhall, Sheffield and Leamington Spa stores. Concessions will be opened in Jollys in Bath and Jarrolds in Norwich.
