    Sir Terence Conran has died aged 88

    Sir Terence Conran, the British designer who revolutionised retail and decor, has died aged 88.

    Best known as the founder of Habitat, he brought Scandinavian style and simplicity to London in the 1960s.

    The Habitat chain eventually formed the nucleus of a retailing empire which included Mothercare, Heals, Richards Shops and British Home Stores.

    "He was adored by his family and friends and we will miss him dearly," his family said, in a statement.
    An iconic of British business, and design - at one point, he owned loads of big companies (Habitat, BHS, Mothercare).

    RIP Sir Terence.
