England interior design now recognized as “modern”

Interior design from England hasn’t been known for being modern or contemporary. English furniture is more often thought of as either old-fashioned or plain, or even ugly. However, Julie Lasky, a design expert for the New York Times, wrote last year, "Apologies to milan and Tokyo. Regrets to Stockholm and Paris. Forgive me, Eindhoven, Berlin, Barcelona, and, most particularly, New York. But London is the design capital of the world."

Olympic games highlight designers

This first became apparent during the 2012 Summer Olympic games which were based in London, England. It was apparent that designers around the country had whipped out their best ideas. Peter Seinhauer, a writer for The China Post, said, "It was evident during the 2012 Olympic Games how important design has become in England," and he went on to cite the prominent designers and architects who were commissioned to contribute to the event, including Architect Thomas Heatherwick who design the Olympic flame’s burner and a new double-decker bus and the duo known as Barber Osgerby who designed the torch itself. These designers are also known for their furniture and lighting designs.

Both Heatherwick and the Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby duo are known for pieces of design that are so modern they look like "they could have been created by extra-terrestrials" and could be "best compared to a UFO."

England climate is "open"

Patrizia Moroso is a leading Italian designer and she had high praise for the new English designs. "London has become the home of creative thinking in many ways. Many young people from all over the world are coming here because the climate is so open."

As modern as their design might be today, it hasn’t been that way for very long. The first introduction the country had to contemporary design was Terence Conran who started a household furnishings chain store in 1964. He soon became a global success and he is known for showing "his fellow Britons how modern furnishings could make life easier and more comfortable." His influence is credited for being part of the movement away from the stodgy, plain furnishings Britons were used to purchasing from second hand shops or antique stores.
