Sir Terence Conran
As many of you will be aware, this weekend saw the sad passing of design pioneer Sir Terence Conran.
His death has been justifiably covered in the national press, and much has been written about his long and illustrious career.
As the founder of Habitat, the Design Museum and The Conran Shop, he introduced the British public to such things as flat-pack furniture, paper lanterns, duvets, espresso machines and woks.
We could write a lot about the life and times of Sir Terence Conran but restoring British manufacturing greatness through the power of design was a particular ambition of his that we at Whitemeadow are familiar with.
We have been extremely proud over the last three years to manufacture upholstery in his name and contribute in some way to fulfil his legacy of bringing modern design to a wider market.
As the great man himself once said, “Home is the heart of life. Home is where we feel at ease, where we belong, where we can create surroundings that reflect our tastes and pleasures. Making a home is a form of creativity open to everyone”.
Sir Terence Conran, we thank you for everything you have done for the British Design industry, and we salute you!
From everyone here at Whitemeadow.
