Sir Terence Conran born October 4, 1931 in England is a textile and furniture designer, a writer, a restaurateur, and retailer.
In the United Kingdom especially, Conran has been particularly influential in the way many of us decorated and furnished our homes for decades; the food we have come to expect in restaurants. Conran opened his first restaurant in 1953, and a second in 1954.
He showed the post World war 11 generation a different kind of lifestyle, one that did not necessarily include spam and knitted tea cosies.
