Consider it not for furniture but for its cheerful linens, kitchen tools, and bath fabrics. In pursuit of the department store’s mandate (set by founder Sir Terence Conran) to bring high design to the masses at affordable prices, A-list artists (Tracey Emin, Manolo Blahnik) have been recruited to contribute temporary items, and products are always peppy and practical. Although this store is Habitat’s showpiece, a nice-size outpost is at 208 King’s Rd. in Chelsea (Tube: Sloane Square or South Kensington).
