Bloggers tour London: Heal's, a design institution

Remember my bloggers design tour to London last spring? Well there is one place that I haven't told you about yet and that is Heal's. The famous department store was founded by John Harris Heal in 1810, introducing French style feather-filled mattresses to London's homeowners. Today Heal's is a veritable design institution, filled with contemporary furniture and lighting.

Vous vous souvenez de mon blog tour design à London au printemps dernier? Et bien, il y un endroit dont je ne vous ai pas encore parlé et c'est Heal's. Ce fameux grand magasin a été fondé en 1810 par John Harris Heal, proposant des matelas plumes de style français aux propriétaires londoniens. Aujourd'hui, Heal's est une véritable institution de design, remplie de mobilier et luminaires contemporains.


Heal's design journey through two centuries is actually quite fascinating, from the Arts & Crafts style furniture designed by Ambroise Heal in the late 1800 (classified 'prison furniture' by the salespeople in the store...) to the textile expertise gained during the 2nd world while making parachutes... Read more about Heal's heritage here.

Traversant deux siècles, le parcours design de Heal's est assez fascinant en fait, depuis le mobilier de style Arts & Crafts créé par Ambroise Heal fin 1800 (qualifié 'mobilier de prison' par les vendeurs du magasin...) à l'expertise textile gagné en fabricant des parachutes pendant la 2ème guerre mondiale... Découvrez plus sur l'héritage Heal's ici.




Heal's has a long tradition of supporting emerging design talents, and the department store was also one of the first in Britain to offer new design such as mid-century modern and Scandinavian design.

Heal's a une longue tradition de soutien aux designers émergents, et le grand magasin était aussi l'un des premiers en Grande Bretagne à proposer du nouveau design tel que le 'mid-century modern' ou le design scandinave.


The stunning staircase was designed by Cecile Brewer in 1916 for the Tottenham Court Road store, where Heal's is located since 1833.
