The inspiration behind the design

Nick Munro has been working with John Lewis since 2005 in the home accessories areas, producing collections as diverse as mirrors, storage, table and barware and bathroom fittings.  As a British designer, Nick ensures that ordinary household items are not only functional, but a stylish and well-crafted addition to anyone’s home.

Now he's also turned his attention to furniture, and has recently produced a new contemporary range for living and dining rooms, exclusively for John Lewis.

Nick studied at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College of Science & Technology. His early innovative idea of turning bed springs into eggcups was highly successful, winning him the coveted UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. In this short video (which we made before he completed his furniture range), Nick talks to me about the inspiration and ideas forming the origins of products he’s designed for John Lewis.
