People say that the most successful homes are the most sustaining and invigorating to live in, or even just to visit. This is true of Barton Court, the house in Berkshire where Terence Conran has made his country home since 1977.

It has been a family home, a centre to his Habitat Design business, a factory and studio for producing commercial and domestic furniture, a laboratory for testing his recipes and writing cookery books and has a working fruit, vegetable and herb garden, supplying produce for his restaurants.

Through the objects that Terence has collected, and the things he finds on his travels, we can learn, not only about the man behind a multi-million pound empire, but the processes that stimulate his creativity and the sources of his inspiration.

    Comments about Terence Conran's Inspiration:

    a lovely hard cover book. inspiration for young
    and older alike.. Conran views the world in an
    interesting way, everyday objects become things of
    beauty, a row of coloured bottles, trees, household
    utensils, tools, they all have their beauty and
    inspiration... a joy to look through and ponder over.
