While Terence Conran pioneered the idea of modernism in Britain back in the 1960s, he’s always had an impressively sharp eye for the decorative too, and nowhere is this more evident than at the Fulham Road flagship. The furniture here ranges from design classics, such as the Eames Dar chair, to collaborations with established designers, such as the colourful Oswald sofa with Squint, to more prosaic but well-designed armchairs, tables, storage units and beds.
Much stock is exclusive and Conran mixes them in among classics to create inspirational room settings on the ground floor. The basement is home to a vast array of lighting (with some innovative designs), tableware and accessories and a great range of inventive kids’ things.
The Conran Shop is number 23 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
