A recent OnePoll survey commissioned by Selfridges revealed that ‘8 out of 10 Brits are wishing for a traditional Christmas this year’, so this year, the luxury department store’s windows (and their most sustainable display yet) pay homage to the long-established Christmas spent at home – or rather ‘at home with The Selfridges’.

The Ivy Chelsea Garden

Every year, The Ivy Chelsea Garden transforms its façade for the festive season – and this year is no different. 2020’s vibrant theme transports visitors to the North Pole – more specifically, Santa’s workshop, featuring a sleigh, mailroom, reindeer stables and more.

Annabel’s

Renowned private members’ club Annabel’s in Mayfair has taken inspiration from The Nutcracker this year. Ballerina’s appear through the window, whilst giant figurines, glistening lights, baubles and red drapes adorn the Berkeley Square building.
