For over two cen­turies, Heal’s has held the well-de­served rep­u­ta­tion as the place to go for great Bri­tish de­sign. Au­tumn/win­ter 2018 is no ex­cep­tion, with the brand col­lab­o­rat­ing with de­sign tal­ents, in­clud­ing Tom Raffield, Eleanor Pritchard and Mag­nus Long, on a stun­ning col­lec­tion,

Tom Raffield builds on his ex­ist­ing range with Heal’s, in­tro­duc­ing new and exclusive pieces. The Quill pen­dant takes its inspiration from the sea­weed on Raffield’s lo­cal beach in Corn­wall, cap­tur­ing its or­ganic beauty in his trade­mark steam-bent wood. For some­thing more dra­matic, his Wheal col­lec­tion of floor, wall and ta­ble lights fea­tures brushed brass and fil­a­ment bulbs to cre­ate a sexy glam­our. Raffield will also be cre­at­ing a steam-bent wood pod in­stal­la­tion at the Fes­ti­val of Light, the an­nual event at Heal’s Tot­ten­ham Court Road store. Run­ning from 16 Oc­to­ber to 6 Novem­ber, it show­cases work by lead­ing light­ing brands (for ticket info, see op­po­site page).

Tex­tile afi­cionado Eleanor Pritchard un­veils her first bed­li­nen col­lec­tion, avail­able ex­clu­sively at Heal’s. Called Sgraf­fito, it has a mid-cen­tury vibe and fea­tures Pritchard’s char­ac­ter­is­tic geo­met­ric mo­tifs in a jacquard weave (the pat­tern is wo­ven in, rather than printed on). This gives the bed­li­nen a beau­ti­fully im­per­fect ir­reg­u­lar­ity.

Heal’s has al­ways cham­pi­oned new tal­ent and this sea­son it con­tin­ues to do so. Up-and­com­ing de­signer Mag­nus Long de­buts his Mas­simo arm­chair and sofa. Both take their inspiration from the Bauhaus move­ment, but have been gen­er­ously up­hol­stered to make them rel­e­vant (and com­fort­able) for 21st-cen­tury ap­pre­ci­a­tors of well-con­sid­ered de­sign. So, for great in­no­va­tion, luxe looks and con­tem­po­rary rel­e­vance, look no fur­ther than Heal’s – where de­sign lives.
