One of our favourites for homeware is La Redoute, so we’ve been picking our favourites from the current collection (see picture). There’s a wealth of trend aware pieces to choose from and now get 40% off with code BLACKFRIDAY at the checkout. It’s the perfect time to make an investment in statement pieces (including the rug that even had its own instagram feed!) with this huge discount.
First we saw Sainsburys bring us trend led homeware at great prices, now we see Tesco joining in. Tesco has been offering home furnishings for a while, but their new brand called Fox & Ivy gives us something a little bit different.
There is a strong art deco theme running through the collection featuring a lot of copper, gold, pattern and cut glass. With small accessories including tableware, vases and frames as well as soft furnishings, you will be sure to find something you love.
It’s rich, but calming; readily available in homeware across the high street; easy to match up with similar hues in paint and wallpaper; and compliments well with other on trend favourites including metallic tones, monochrome or jewel tones – or you go true to the trend and have design braveness in having everything being in the teal colour! – a strong bold look.
A familiar sight on big town high streets is favourite department store House of Fraser. Head online or to your closest store to discover what’s new in for Autumn/Winter in their generous homeware and interiors department.
With big brands, own brands and designer brands, and a large range of pricing and styles so there’s something for everyone. Explore the kitchen department for beautifully designed plates and glassware; modern stylish designs in lighting; scented candles galore to make perfect Christmas presents; furniture, art, cushions, bedding, kitchenalia, towels, cutlery, the list goes on.
There’s always great special offers, sales and even a rewards card to ensure shopping there is even more worth while.
We don’t often feature kids stores, but thought it was about time we did, especially as one of us has just welcomed a new member to her family.
We came across thismodernlife.co.uk and fell in love. Full of monochrome and pattern, the gorgeous designs of lighting, soft furnishings and accessories will compliment any room.
Launched in 2011 as The Modern Baby by Suzanne & Danny, this online store as grown and evolved as their family has, searching out products that will bring fun and joy to your home.
‘We combine modern, retro and vintage inspired items. We are passionate about supporting other small businesses, and aim to continually increase our stock of eco friendly products. We genuinely love what we do here, and we want you to be excited by our expanding range of home wares and decor – we have lots of plans for the future!’
Monochrome is as popular as ever with high street stores and designers still loving the simplicity, easy coordination and extensive pattern options to create crisp modern interiors.
Whether you go for an even mix of the tones or go stronger on either black or white, it’s an easy colour palette to work with.
As dark interiors are so on trend we love the look of styling heavily black with highlights of white in framing, fabrics and ceramics. Black walls can make a fantastic backdrop for white accessories to really stand out. Keep the look modern with only occasional pattern and stick mainly to plain black or white in accessories and fabrics. For wall decor choose illustrative prints, linear designs, typography or black and white photography. Head to Desenio, Gayle Mansfield or A Room in my House for prints to suit the look.
It is always exciting when a new brand hits the high street, intrigued to see how they are going to stand out from the rest. Well ARKET is the name, and it already has a good head start, coming from the H&M family.
With H&M Home doing so well at the moment with well designed, well made pieces at great prices its the perfect time to introduce the new brand.
The online range is well put together, if a little limited. You will though find some gorgeous items from kitchenware to vases to soft furnishings. Our advice is to head to the flagship store on Regent St, London. Here you will get the full ARKET experience. A stripped back, simple collection which is sustainable, durable and timeless.
‘A modern-day market that offers essential products for men, women, children and the home, ARKET stores also include a café based on the New Nordic Food Manifesto. ARKET’s mission is to democratise quality through widely accessible, well-made, durable products, designed to be used and loved for a long time’
