Luxury Furniture Retailer and Interior Design Service Provider Juliettes Interiors Became the First High-End British Retailer to Accept Bitcoin

Juliette Thomas, director of the company, is a person who seeks to adopt new technologies. She was one of the first to drive a fully electric Tesla car. Now she is turning to the encryption market.

She said that during the next 18 months, the use of bitcoin will be part of our daily lives.

The world around us does not stop and, as a business, we must always be ahead of the game. We've been looking at digital currencies for some time and we know that many of our clients are serious bitcoin investors.

She adds that even though the cryptocurrency user base is growing, Juliettes Interiors' customers have been unable to use it. That's up to now. Customers will now have the opportunity to use bitcoin to pay for the luxury services, designer furniture and residential interior design of the company.

In July, it was reported that Dadiani Fine Art, located in Mayfair, London, had become the first art gallery in the UK to accept a range of cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, as a payment for his art.

At the time, Eleesa Dadiani, owner of the gallery, said:

Cryptocurrencies will serve as a bridge between the elitist and centralist fine art market and a decentralized open source world where many others can be part of this exciting market.

This, however, is only one example of how London is adopting the digital currency market. The housing sector is also turning to money. Earlier this month, a Notting Hill mansion went on sale with a asking price of £ 17 million. Buyers who want to buy the six-storey stucco house will have to pay in bitcoin, which will make it the first in the city.
