To celebrate International Women's Day we're looking at some of the most influential women in furniture and interior design.

Known as America’s most famous husband and wife creative team, Charles & Ray Eames worked in just about every medium imaginable. They helped shape America’s Mid-century Modern movement and produced a prolific range of designs including the Eames Lounge Chair (1956) and the DSW Chair (1950) which are still to this day heralded for their innovative use of new materials. Available from Heal's on our ground floor.

Margaux is a Paris based product and interior designer. She has a way with natural materials and often works with glass blowers, cabinet makers and ceramists, combining their skills with her modern aesthetic.

Her Faye lighting collection for MADE.COM has a 60s and early 70s influence of form with a contemporary brass finish. Available from MADE.COM on our third floor.
