We’re delighted to bring you a shiny new issue for your collection – number 09, another cracker (she says humbly – I hope you’ll agree!). Due to go to press in the next week, the ‘green one’ will hit the shelves in mid-November. To mark his centenary year, we ask Paula Day, daughter of British design Great Robin Day, to share some personal insights into her father’s designs, and we take a look around two very different homes: a concrete tribute to American Modernism in Belgium, which just happens to house a rare collection of Eames furniture, and a thoughtfully refurbished 1963 split-level ‘chalet’ in London.

We visit textile designer Eleanor Pritchard at her fabulous studio and discuss, among other things, British craft tradition and her mid-century inspirations, and Catherine Ince, Curator of the much-anticipated Eames exhibition at the Barbican, gives her commentary on Ray Eames’ 1949 room-set.

Author Lesley Jackson reveals the stories behind her own collection of British mid-century ceramics, and Dutch lighting dealers Béton Brut provide a Buyer’s Guide to an area that remains largely untapped with UK collectors.
