Salah Ben-Halim, who runs the Arts & Crafts design specialist, says that the new premises will be a satellite gallery for the business, running from March 7 until August, and possibly longer.
“Like many dealers, while most of our sales are online these days we still prefer the more traditional face-to-face way of doing business, and firmly believe that a smart, physical shop in a prime location still has its place in this digital day and age,” says Ben-Halim.
He exhibited at the shop when it was home to art pottery dealership Richard Dennis Gallery in 2007. Kensington Church Street is a historic base for the art and antiques trade.
Dealers such as John Jesse, Paul Reeves and Harry Lyons, all specialists in Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau design, previously dealt from premises on the west London road.
The new pop-up shop is at 144A Kensington Church Street.
Ben-Halim will also maintain his 1800 sq ft Brentford, west London, showroom where the business operates by appointment.
