Are you sitting comfortably?
Good news from the high street - and this has nothing to do with KFC being boarded up in Brixton - Sir Terence Conran (STC) has been working on a range of exclusive furniture with M&S. Yes, Habitat may have kicked the bucket chair but its founder is still going strong. 'We are creating, useful and beautiful products that can improve the quality of people's lives and give them years of pleasure,' says STC who will be 80-years-old in October:
This teal velvet sofa would definitely give me years of pleasure and make the perfect replacement for our battered old 1950s leather settee.
A small collection of 70 pieces launches in-store and online on 22 September 2011. Expanding to over 300 Conran Exclusive Design products for spring 2012. All the upholstery is made to order in the UK.
