Aesop Chelsea store interior

A space steeped in literary history

Our Chelsea signature store is the result of a collaboration with esteemed literary journal The Paris Review, which has flourished since we first crossed paths.

The ceiling is a floating sculpture crafted from approximately 1000 original editions of The Paris Review; the walls are papered with letters, photographs, and other ephemera. Visitors will find not only the current issue, but also a curated selection of back issues from across the decades.

Products are displayed on bold A-frame bookshelves, the rich, dark timber a handsome complement to our amber glassware and packaging. Opposite the shelving, a capacious porcelain wash-basin with antique-style tapware offers a fine setting for product demonstrations.
