Fade away and radiate

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

Old radiators inspire a new range

There are worse obsessions than developing a fascination with really old radiators and devoting your time to scouring house clearances, local fairs and auctions in order to find, dust down and re-make them new, but that’s pretty much Carron’s story. And with names like ‘Victorian’, ‘Cromwell’ and ‘Duchess’, you’d think the link between them and the contemporary home was a tentative one. But looking at the proto-functionalist ‘Eton’, below, in its creamy buttermilk, you can imagine the hand of Corb not so far from cranking its valve to the ‘on’ position.
