editor's note

Welcome to the H & G100 issue. It has been an absolute joy to put together. We have infused the whole magazine with a whiff of heritage, from the news and shopping pages – Passion for Pattern shows classic designs that are still on the roll – to the Dream Sitting Room by Veere Greeney in a Lutyens home. We have also created fabulous one-off features, both out of content plundered from the archive and looking to what’s next in design. I’d love to hear what you think of it all. Also in this issue we publish the The Hundred List, our edit of people and brands that have shaped today’s interiors. Although it was hard to whittle down, we admire every name on there and see them as game-changers. Looking to the…

homes & gardens celebrates its landmark birthday by delving into the archives to explore the life and times of an iconic brand

‘EVERYONE desires to make their home as comfortable, tasteful and convenient as means will allow; and it will be the endeavour of this magazine to help towards that end.’ Such was the promise made in the first issue of Our Homes and Gardens in June 1919. Priced at one shilling, Britain’s first home-interest magazine struck a positive note as the nation pulled back following the end of the First World War and the loss of over one million of its citizens. The magazine reacted to the changing domestic circumstances of middle-class households where servants were now in short supply. Luckily, there had been an explosion in the availability of labour-saving devices, thanks to the new electricity network, and the merits of electric irons, telephones and gramophones were discussed at length,…

EYE FOR COLOUR Known for its wonderful lighting creations and chic designer collaborations, The Urban Electric Co has added colour matching to its offerings. Simply decide on your paint brand and hue, and your chosen light will be powder-coated to your perfect shade. We’d pick the Chisholm Hall in Curry Powder, £3,260. NATURALLY CRAFTED Let’s Pause is the ethical Spanish furniture and accessories brand that wants to root us to nature by bringing natural materials into our homes. Skilled artisans craft unique pieces from a range of materials found in Spain’s most arid regions. Shown are the Salada basket, from €50, and a selection of hats including the Macarella, €24. A DELICATE BALANCE Inspiration comes in many forms and, for Graham & Brown, it arose from the Swedish notion of lagom, meaning just the right…

100 years of partnership

IT IS PRETTY SPECIAL to be working with a brand for 100 years; we’ve been collaborating with Heal’s since our launch issue. Our archive deep-dive unearthed some advertisements from the early issues. The first ever was for some very stylish rush mats, fine proof that good taste never goes out of fashion. To mark this incredible partnership, we have created a Centenary collection using the Heal’s Designed by You concept. The editorial team worked closely with its furniture buyer Kris Manalo to create this capsule of three beautiful pieces for classic living rooms. And better still... The UK-made pieces all feature our gorgeous new fabrics from the Homes & Gardens III collection from Baker Lifestyle at GP&J Baker (this artisan-inspired range just launched in February). The velvet sofa (£3,764) and…
