Heals celebrates 200 years!

It’s incredible to think that Heals is 200 years old; and still going strong.  The store has always pioneered great names and has been responsible for showcasing some monumental design pieces.  Lucienne Day was one such designer and as a way of paying tribute to her and in line with the latest trend in 50’s style interiors, Heals are re-issuing her famous Calyx fabric from 1951 (seen below). Lucienne Day created many beautiful collections that continue to be an inspiration to the design industry.Lucienne and Robin Day

Below are some original posters from Heals in the 50’s & 60’s; aren’t they great!

Moving forward to modern time, Heals are still showcasing current and new talent with British designers like Mathew Hilton and Kay + Stemmer and more recent designers such as Lee Bloom (who I featured in my London Design Week post) and Benjamin Hubert.  Then there are the staple names such as Tom Dixon, Ligne Roset and Vitra.
