The Conran Shop

French connection.

NUVO Of Note: The Conran Shop

The Conran Shop, one of London’s preferred concept design boutiques, looks no farther than across the English Channel to inspire its latest in-store collection, “A Season in France.” On display until the end of June at the Conran Shop’s Marylebone, Chelsea, and Paris boutiques, the curated selection of all things French—from the realms of art, design, food, and drink—stocks picnic essentials like mussel pots and lobster shell crackers, sweet lavender honey from Provence and jars of Jean Brunet pâté, and outdoor furnishings by Fermob and Temps Libre. The scent of Provence will linger throughout the Chelsea flagship store, too, as its living wall has been planted with bright purple lavender especially for the occasion.
