'A handsome yet joyful manual for easy, stylish living.' - Architectural Digest
Terence Conran always believed that objects - and surroundings - that are plain, simple and useful are the key to easy living. By being practical and performing well over time, they are as much the antidote to superficial styling as they are to the shoddy and second-rate. Applied to the home as a whole, this discerning approach results in interiors that are effortlessly stylish, confident and timeless, with plenty of room for the expression of personal taste.
Plain Simple Useful is organized according to the main activities that take place at home. Inspirational interiors, many of which were Conran's own, provide all the guidance you need to tailor-make your own storage. The book also features iconic examples of classic designs that will enhance any home, as well as a peek behind the closed doors of those well-ordered cupboards, larders and other stowing spaces that contribute so much to easy living.
This updated edition of the book features a new chapter on plain, simple, useful style outdoors with elegant contemporary ideas for eating and relaxing spaces outside.

One could fill a fashionable shelf with the lifestyle books written by Sir Terence Conran, the designer, restaurateur and retailer who founded the European home furnishings store Habitat a half-century ago. * The Houston Chronicle *
This beautifully packaged tome shows yet again that Conran (How to Live in Small Spaces) has an uncanny ability to provide people with exactly what they want after they want it. Now that the tiny house movement has exploded, and spare is the new lux, Conran presents his version of a pared-down aesthetic. * Publishers Weekly *
