Timothy Oulton Backs Barbados for Hong Kong Rugby 7′s
Premium lifestyle and furniture brand Timothy Oulton are proud to sponsor the Barbados Men’s Rugby Sevens team this month for Hong Kong’s most coveted annual sports event. The Brits have a long history of rooting for the underdog and British born Timothy Oulton will be championing the team all the way.
With stores in both Barbados and Hong Kong, Timothy Oulton is an energetic young company full of optimism and dreams, fostering a network of like-minded individuals. This extends to the brand’s ingrained passion for rugby, supported by founder Tim Oulton who is himself an ex-rugby player and an avid fan of Barbados, where he spends part of the year.
Tim’s background in the antiques industry and his father’s military career have shaped his designs, along with a passion for sport. Every piece is handcrafted using time-honoured techniques to create unique pieces that will last for generations.
Rugby is a game of fearless tackles and gentlemanly fair play, much like Timothy Oulton’s daring nature and authenticity in both its designs and craftsmanship. In a salute to sporting achievements, Timothy Oulton’s sports-inspired collection includes quirky Bar Ball stools, with a removable leather ball seat, a range of retro American Locker cabinets and original vintage rugby balls. The Barbados flag stands as a proud statement of heritage on hand-stitched cushions or framed in a shadow box.
The Hong Kong Rugby Sevens is one of South-East Asia’s most popular sporting events, with thousands of fans travelling from across the globe to revel in the carnival atmosphere. With a total of 28 participating teams, Barbados are lined up to play Zimbabwe and Russia on Friday and Chile on Saturday during the Sevens weekend.
