Just as this issue was about to go to press, we heard the sad news that Sir Terence Conran had passed away aged 88 at home in Berkshire. I can’t overstate the impact Sir Terence has had on my life and career. Long before I met him, he was an ever-present force, from my early childhood obsessions with Habitat and saving up to buy my earliest designer pieces from The Conran Shop, to eating oysters for the first time at Bibendum and being inspired beyond words when I visited the then brand-new Design Museum (all institutions we have him to thank for). In the background, he was always there. When I did eventually meet him, I loved his energy, the cheeky twinkle in his eye and his impeccable taste. He was…

As supplier to some of the world’s top hotels, Tielle Love Luxury specialises in all things bedding. Co-founder Robert Lancaster-Gaye shares his advice on what to look out for when buying linens. What’s the golden rule for buying linens? Quality is everything. We recommend bed linen that’s made of 100 per cent high-grade long-staple cotton – it’s breathable and soft, but stronger than polycotton or polyester. It may be slightly pricier but, given the right care, is more cost-effective in the long run. Also, measure your mattress. There are so many depths, lengths and widths on the market – having everything fit correctly makes the world of difference. Why do thread counts matter – is higher always better? Three hundred- or 400-thread-count linens woven from good-quality cotton will have all the luxe…

How did the collaboration with Hem come about? About three years ago, we started conversations with Hem. I was really keen to work on a project with founder Petrus and he initially suggested we design a range of textiles, but I wanted to work on something with more geometry and sculpture. So we decided on a chair, although textiles would be at the forefront of the design. What influences did you draw on for the ‘Puffy Lounge’ chair? I started thinking about my favourite chairs and at home we have this old Marcel Breuer sling chair with a bashed-about old canvas; the children jump all over it and it’s superglued together, but I love it. Whether we’re living in a mid-century home or a Georgian property, it just works. So, I wanted…
