Four Issues of the Habitat Catalogue. 1977- 1985.


Four Issues of the Habitat Catalogue. 1977- 1985. 
Quarto. Four perfect-bound homeware catalogues, each in full-colour illustrated wrappers. Colour illustrations throughout. 152-191pp. London: Habitat, 1977-1985.   

A glossy time capsule of 1980s design and decor with opening introductions by Terence Conran in each issue. The Habitat catalogue offers everything from ashtrays, fish kettles, napkin rings, record racks and pressure cookers to Japanese lanterns and spices. Plus, of course you can find the cheap pasta storage jars that Terence Conran thanked for his shop’s initial success just when the market for dried pasta took off in the UK. The catalogue also included special features on topics such as the Bauhaus, picture hanging, the art of laying a table, a recipe for Bagna càuda and more.
