New launch at Conran

Conran’s Well Considered range launches today, the firm’s stab at entering the market for more affordable products. Speaking as someone for whom anything not dragged out of a skip seems a bit steep, this is welcome news, and the stress here is really on good-quality design that will last rather than cheap stuff that won’t. I wanted to like more of the launch collection, especially as I’d read that it would have a ’50s/’60s vibe, but for me, the Plank desk/table (first designed by Ercol in 1956) really stands out, along with the Luci floor light and a classic bentwood chair in red or lime green that won’t date. Oh, and ‘Well Considered’ is the most blah name ever: I’m going to add it to my list of ways to describe things I hate without offending too much (“Hmm…that’s very, um…well considered”).

  1. The bentwood chair is so cool. I would love to buy one and incorporate it into a really fun and funky room.
