The home of design
Autumn/winter’s finest contemporary furniture and accessories are found in one place – Heal’s
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.
