Art Deco :Michelin House - in Chelsea, London was the HQ for Michelin tyres in the UK and opened in 1911. It was reopened as a restaurant - Bibendum - & a Conran Shop in 1987. Often referred to as Art-Deco, it precedes that style by twenty years. Making it an extraordinary trend-setter. SW3, South Kensington Tube. By Jerry Desmond on Panoramio. @designerwallace
