Oxford Street
This building on Oxford Street, in London, started life as a retail outlet of the furniture company Waring and Gillow.  The company manufactured furniture in Lancaster and Liverpool and, in addition to selling their goods to wealthy customers, fitted-out luxury hotels and ocean liners.  The Grade II Listed building, designed by Frank Atkinson, is described as being "Free Renaissance" in style.  It is constructed of red brick with lavish stone dressings.  It stands four-storeys high with a further two dormer storeys. 

The corners of the building on Oxford Street have protruding ship's prows. 

The circular windows on the second floor are decorated with stone sculptures featuring festoons of flowers with sculpted heads at the top.

In 2017 the building has a mixture of retail and office use.
