'A handsome yet joyful manual for easy, stylish living.' - Architectural Digest Terence Conran always believed that objects - and surroundings - that are plain, simple and useful are the key to easy living. By being practical and performing well over time, they are as much the antidote to superficial styling as they are to the shoddy and second-rate. Applied to the home as a whole, this discerning approach results in interiors that are effortlessly stylish, confident and timeless, with plenty of room for the expression of personal taste. Plain Simple Useful is organized according to the main activities that take place at home. Inspirational interiors, many of which were Conran's own, provide all the guidance you need to tailor-make your own storage. The book also features iconic examples of classic designs that will enhance any home, as well as a peek behind the closed doors of those well-ordered cupboards, larders and other stowing spaces that contribute so much to easy living. This updated edition of the book features a new chapter on plain, simple, useful style outdoors with elegant contemporary ideas for eating and relaxing spaces outside.

'The British designer who revolutionised retail and decor.' BBC news 'Terence Conran was instrumental in the redesigning of post-war Britain and his legacy is huge..He changed the way we lived and shopped and ate.' Tim Marlow, Director and Chief Executive, Design Museum. 'He spent his whole career looking for ways to make life better for everyone.' Deyan Sudjic, Director Emeritus, Design Museum In My Life in Design, Terence Conran tells the story of the Conran brand from the founding of the Conran Design Studio more than sixty years ago to the creation of the Design Museum, now based in a dazzling new space on High Street Kensington. Extensively illustrated chapters consider the many areas where Terence and his design team made a lasting impact on the way we live our lives, including the founding of Habitat, which introduced good, affordable homeware to the high street, his restaurants, which brought Britain out of the culinary dark ages to discover the joys of eating out and his talent for rescuing and regenerating abandoned buildings and bringing them back into exciting new use. My Life in Design is illustrated with more than 400 images - many from private collections that have not been published before. The book is introduced by internationally renowned designer, Thomas Heatherwick, who identifies his mentor Terence Conran as 'a modernist who, together with a tiny handful of others, gave us a new vision of Britain and ourselves.' Now in his eighties and still designing beautiful homeware and opening buzzy, welcoming restaurants, Terence reveals the secrets and stories of this transformation of British design. Gloriously lively, opinionated and visually stimulating, this is the only book to tell the story of Terence Conran's remarkable career in his own words. Terence Conran: My Life in Design will appeal to designers, students and all those who have grown up with the work of the multi-talented Sir Terence Conran.
