Conran: New Wallpaper, Windows and Market Picks

There’s lots of fun and exiting happenings going on at Conran. First off, and to celebrate Sir Terrance Conran’s 80th birthday, Conran have allowed Surface View access to a range of mid-century prints from their V&A archives. Photographed here with their new Barton range in partnership with Ercol – a seven piece range of solid oak furniture (shown above/below). Their visual team have been busy creating a ‘Sunrise to Sunset’ theme for their summer windows, depicting a summer’s day from breakfast to evening drinks, with morning and evening birdsong playing in each section. I certainly need to hot foot it down there to see it in person, especially given how beautiful their spring windows were. Finally, I’ve shared a few picks from The Conran Shop’s summer range, because let’s face it: these guys stock some seriously tempting pieces! Anything catch your eye? Have you seen the new window displays yet?

    The wallpapers are amazing. The moody paper with the blues and purples is fantastically retro. And the new bare wood pieces are equally stunning.

    so glad the conran shop is “back”. they went a little general trading company for awhile with dull colors and ideas but the summer stuff – so fresh and snappy!

    thanks for giving us a look!
