MODERN HEIRLOOMS FOR THE MODERN GENERATION


"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful,

or believe to be beautiful."

-William Morris


I've always had a fascination with the beautiful: books, buildings, furniture, things made with consideration and time, objects designed with love. In my early twenties and with a background in product design, I've recently been musing over the concept of heirlooms ~ the process of designing one, and what they look like to different generations and generations to come.


During my studies I had a tutor who frequently referenced that ''good design will sing in the humblest of materials....", and so perhaps it's as simple as taking a pinch of honesty, a splash of beauty and a dash of enduring utility in designing, appreciating and accruing modern heirlooms ~ whatever they look like to you.


Below I share some of mine, with the simple intention that they inspire you to start thinking, collecting and passing on your own little piece of history.
