editor’s letter

Every year, House and Leisure compiles a list of Next Generation creative talents – each of whom is doing groundbreaking work in their specific industry – and I’m proud to say that this list has given a real boost to several young designers’ careers (not to mention sparked a number of dinner-table debates among my circle of friends about suitable candidates and talent that has been overlooked).

Young talents excel here, and their work helps define their own internationally minded, heritage-fuelled diaspora identities more than ever before. Conceptual furniture maker Yinka Ilori is a delightful case in point. Drawing on the parables told to him by his Nigerian parents when he was growing up, he tells his own stories through the chairs he creates, using his mother’s beloved wax fabrics to upscale found objects into brightly coloured, often humorous and always thought-provoking…
