    Stationery cabinet, Terence Conran

    When the words bespoke and Sir Terence Conran are uttered in the same sentence, you know you’re talking about something rare and very special, so we’re delighted to be offering you the chance to win one of three unique cupboards designed by the British design icon. The cabinets were created for Conran’s latest book Plain, Simple, Useful (£25 from Conran Octopus) and were made by the craftsmen at Benchmark.

    Plain, Simple, Useful explores the essence of Conran style - ‘I have always believed that the key to plain, simple and useful living is good organisation, which entails both keeping a firm grip on possessions and providing enough dedicated storage space to house them efficiently.’ Sir Terence explains.
