Make the most of your time, space and funds with this indispensable guide to contemporary living by one of the world’s leading experts on interior design. Sir Terence Conran firmly believes that objects and their surroundings should be plain, simple and useful. These three key factors equate to easy living and form the basis of the design guru’s latest book PLAIN SIMPLE USEFUL: The Essence of Conran Style.
Sharing his philosophy, that “good design improves the quality or people’s lives”, this book guides you through practical design which will perform well over time, providing the remedy to superficial, shoddy and second-rate styling. Organised according to the main activities that take place at home, the pages are filled with inspirational interiors, many of which are Conran’s own, and a number of unique projects designed by Terence exclusively for this book. From iconic examples of classic designs, guidelines for decorating and a peek behind the closed doors of enviable, well-ordered cupboards, larders and stowing spaces – you’ll find all the inspiration you need to embrace easy living.
