Picasso cushion collection at the Conran Shop


Coming next month to the Conran Shop is the new Picasso cushion collection, a range that has been developed exclusively for the Conran Shop, in association with the Picasso Foundation.

The latest cushions feature three different pieces of the great man's artwork – Matador (1970), Portrait of a woman with a hat (1962) and Head of the Woman (1962). All have been created by specialist craftsmen at a mill outside Paris, the cushions combining the traditions of tapestry with art that is anything but traditional.

All are available from September for £69 each. if you can't wait that long, the original collection of three designs is still available online for the same price.

Ercol plank table from The Conran Shop

Plank table
We've highlighted The Conran Shop's Well Considered range before, intended to be a more affordable line of products. This 1950s designed plank table is now available as part of the range. 

This table was actually designed back in 1956 by Lucian R. Ercolani and is still manufactured by Ercol. It's a very simple design with that plank-like elm top and splayed beech legs which fits six people. Available in three colours: take your pick from the natural look or a more striking black or red. 

It's priced at – while not budget, a more affordable than your average Conran Shop item – £595.

Barton furniture collection by Terence Conran for The Conran Shop

Barton table
The Conran Shop's new Barton furniture collection has some great British design names behind it: it was designed by Terence Conran and manufactured by Ercol.

The seven piece collection is made up of tables and stylish storage, all made from solid oak. As you might expect from the names involved, it's got a fairly classic look, with a nod to the mid-century, as shown in the coffee table pictured. 

Prices start at £595 for nesting tables and go up to £2995 for an armoire. The table pictured costs £650.
