Designer Spotlight: Terence Conran

On my first trip to London, I wasted no time heading to The Conran Shop, one of the hippest home stores in existence and the perfect place to acquaint myself with Terence Conran, a one-man bastion of British design.

It's tough to say what the 75-year-old Conran is best known for. As the founder of the Habitat home stores in 1964, he introduced a high-design aesthetic to a wide spectrum of shoppers. He's also a hotelier and restaurateur with more than 20 eateries, as well as the founder of the architectural and design firm Conran and Partners.

Most important, as far as I'm concerned, is that the designer is still redefining modern hip with his eight Conran Shops, which feature a well-curated selection of designers as well as Conran's work, which you can see examples of below.

Love Terrance Conran and The Conran Shop. His daughter, Sophie, has a line of gorgeous pottery out and I'm coveting her sugar and creamer set as well as her serving ware.
