Bloomsbury, London - 2016
Heal's flagship store is a must for anyone with an eye for the aesthetic arts. Wonderful displays of lighting, homewares and other furniture are all set in a Venetian styled Victorian palazzo where each room provides a new spectacle.
The main interest in the building for photographers is Cecil Brewer's spiral staircase. Built in 1916, the centrepiece was recently refurbished with a bespoke chandelier from lighting specialists Bocci which hangs through 4 storeys of exquisite wooden bannisters.
The store encourages snappers to come in and grab a photo of its helical icon so is an great location to get over the awkwardness of taking photographs in a busy store.
