Home of Terence Conran

The dining chairs came from a decomissioned ocean liner and Conran designed the table.
Sir Terence Conran is a design businessman that I have admired for a long time - he is a well known designer, restaurateur, retailer and publisher. He has made quite an impression in the design world and received the Prince Philip Designers Prize in recognition of his lifetime achievements in design. I made great efforts to visit most of his retail and restaurant businesses as well as the Design Museum, which he founded, when I lived in London.
So how does a person of his design reputation live? Simply with classic design pieces and quirky details throughout.





Black Fischel chairs with a vintage Saarinen Tulip table.



The sofa and rug are Conran's own designs.





The french deco table was brought at a flea market at L'isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Provence. (I've been there!)
The boxes (left) hold Conran's butterfly collection.



Shaker brushes from New York's antique stores are displayed over the bathroom's fireplace.



The armrest on this chair broke so Conran changed it to make it more useful...

A lovely, showpiece house. Calming colors, but sometimes a bit too contrived. I do like the chair re-do.
