Terence Conran of Habitat fame is one of the—if not the—most prominent figures in British design, and his legendary shop is just one of his many legacies. His son Jasper is heir to his throne: He’s recently overhauled the store’s layout, style, and feel. Mixing furniture into realistic and enticing home-like vignettes, the shop is now a source of inspiration as much is it is the place to buy 20th-century design large and small. Along with all the Eames, Saarinens and van der Rohe’s—not to mention, Donald Judd’s furniture designs, for which Conran has the exclusive—the knick knacks, stationery, and design books are unparalleled, making it hard to walk out empty handed. There is also another location in Chelsea.
