It’s no surprise that the home of English designer Jasper Conran is impeccably decked out. An apartment occupying part of New Wardour Castle, an English country house in Wiltshire, the building boasts a rare sweeping rotunda staircase designed by English architect James Paine and full-sized pipe organ made of wood, ivory and gold.
“The building boasts a rare sweeping rotunda staircase designed by English architect James Paine.”
The son of author Shirley Conran and retailer Sir Terence Conran, whose stores have become synonymous with British interior design, Jasper Conran’s position as a leading tastemaker was preordained. Beginning his career designing for historic New York store Henri Bendel, he launched his namesake brand in 1978 at the age of 19, and has since become a household name.
Here, the English designer invites director Emile Rafael into his apartment in the Palladian house to talk about his love for the grandeur of the English country house.
