The story of Terence Conran and his mission to bring modern design to the high street. The book examines Conran's career and vision, the founding of Habitat in 1964 and it's growth in the 1980s to become a major international chain. From paper lanterns to butchers' blocks, Habitat designs became a staple of the twentieth-century home.
