Legendary, visionary British designer. I bought this Conran/Quant book last year.

RIP Sir Terence.
I still have a wool rug in my living room that I bought in the 80's from the Conran Shop.
It was the first "nice" item I bought for the new home I moved into..

We have a Habitat extendable dining table bought when we moved to the new house 14 years ago. Not so affordable really but hard as nails.

I think I paid $400 for this rug, at the time my parents thought I was crazy spending that much on a rug. But it still looks great!
