Online store: Homespun Vintage Design

Oliver Childs’ simple and beautifully designed website, Homespun British Design, is both a shop and an information source about 20th-century (mostly post-war) British design. It only sells a few things, but they are well-edited, nicely photographed and accompanied by interesting little nuggets of historical information about each piece. The site also contains a few essays on related subjects, from Olivetti’s influential Valentine typewriter to little biogs of Ernest Race and Robin Day. The whole thing is clearly a labour of love, and all the better for it.
