Conran Shop Throws Us a Bone
Terrance Conran, the Brit designer/owner of The Conran Shop has launched an affordable line called "Well Considered." The web store (and stateside shop in New York), which feature high-end designer furniture by Eames, Kartell and the like, has long been a favorite of design buffs. Think of it as a British Design Within Reach. So it's great news when you can finally afford something at the place.
This gorgeous Oak-and-Glass Trestle Table designed by Terrance Conran himself isn't too pricey at $595. Not a complete steal, but a deal I would say. The line of just under 40 items has some hits (like this perfectly simple glass bowl) and misses (cheese-grater light anyone?), but is worth checking out.
