John Lewis continue to step up their game when it comes to their homeware offering and this year’s spring/summer offering is their strongest yet. I’m focusing on two of their main trends, Botanist and Pioneer, the former being based around Britain’s collective love of gardening. Perhaps being a Brit myself means I can resonate well with this but I think many of us enjoy a few hours of green fingered activity, whether we have a kitchen garden to call our own or little balcony high above the buzz of the city below. I love the organic textures and colours of this trend: the gentle chalky blue-grey hues paired with green accents and rustic textures make the look a winning look for summer. The second trend, Pioneer, is more contemporary than it’s counterpart and is a fusion of styles from different ideas and cultures. Inspiration for the pieces has come from the sun baked deserts and landscapes of the American southwest. I think the coffee table I chose in my market picks would fit well with the colours and patterns in this trend. Which pieces are tempting you, friends?
