Magazine celebrates 100th edition in style

Posted on

Archant Specialist’s The English Home magazine is celebrating in style its 100th UK edition, on sale from May 1.

Some 13 years after its first publication hits the newsstands, the June 2013 edition features a celebratory 17-page section entitled “The English Home Select 100” to highlight iconic and quintessentially English people, places and ‘Ones to Watch’.

The Select 100 is filled with insightful quotes from some of the most influential voices in the industry, from interior designers like Nina Campbell to furniture makers such as Viscount David Linley, to legendary garden designers such as Beth Chatto.

There are dishes and ingredients selected by top chefs and food experts including Mary Berry and Skye Gyngell. And the team have also included opinions from spokespeople from some of our most important national associations and world-class authorities including English Heritage, the RHS, The Historic Houses Association, The Design Museum, The World Monuments Fund, the V&A, Christie’s, Bonhams, Sotheby’s and more.

Editor Kerryn Harper-Cuss said: “Putting this issue together has been an exciting, hectic and humbling experience. Exciting because the team and I feel privileged to be in stewardship of our publication at the time of celebrating our momentous 100th UK edition, hectic because we wanted to mark the occasion with “The English Home Select 100”, and humbling because we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the incredibly knowledgeable experts who have shared with us their personal choices and insights.

“When we set out to curate our edit of 100 people, places and products, we always knew it would be time-consuming, and perhaps even controversial, but it has also been incredibly thought-provoking and enlightening to assemble.”

Key categories include: • English Design Classics • Design Heroes • ‘Ones to Watch’ • Iconic English lifestyle brands • Exceptional interior/architectural achievements • Inspirational garden design locations

The English Home magazine was launched in February 2000 as a bi-monthly title. It is now a monthly publication with a loyal national and international audience.
