Concierge.com's insider take:
Paul Smith's Mayfair showroom sells the very best of the curios the designer finds on his travels. Italian ebonized-wood and bone chairs from the 1870s sit alongside an American 1970s steel table, and, somehow, it works. It's perfect for those who fancy a quirky period look but aren't inclined to rummage through antique fairs to get it. Of course, the dirty work done by Smith and his talented buyers comes at a price. A 1960s Charles Eames leather chair and ottoman, customized with a contemporary wooden back panel by English artist Sally Weekes, would cost you nearly six grand. But the ever-changing inventory does include more-attainable pieces, such as vintage sterling silver wallet pins for $10 (they're monogrammed, so good luck finding the right letters), a Bavarian teacup set for $175, or 1940s wallpaper for a mere $145 per roll.
