ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style The Britlist -

Sir Ter­ence Con­ran is the man we have to thank for The Con­ran Shop, Habi­tat and The De­sign Mu­seum, as well as the over 50 books he’s authored. Here, he rec­om­mends the work of young fur­ni­ture de­signer Daniel Schofield ( be­low; con­ran­shop.co.uk).

‘Daniel is a bright young de­signer whose work and ap­proach to de­sign I ad­mire a great deal,’

says Con­ran of Schofield, who cre­ates el­e­gant pieces that fo­cus on beau­ti­ful ma­te­ri­als and un­der­stated shapes. ‘He’s a hands-on prob­lem solver who looks for sim­ple so­lu­tions to cre­ate clean and beau­ti­ful prod­ucts. He also hap­pens to be an ami­able chap, with the strength of char­ac­ter to be­come one of the lead­ing fig­ures in the Bri­tish de­sign in­dus­try.’ Schofield has just col­lab­o­rated with The Con­ran Shop to pro­duce a fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion. The ‘Sum­mit’ side ta­ble (right, £395) has a base made from Bri­tish mar­ble quar­ried in Ply­mouth and the Isle of Man (daniel schofield.co.uk).
