Some trends are timeless, so add easy chic to your home with iconic
designs from our Spring/Summer collection.

Design classics

In the ever-evolving, experimental world of interiors there are certain designs that just never seem to grow old. Read on to discover the inspiration behind the classic pieces in our spring/summer range, available in selected stores now.

1940s film noir

Brass Effect Case Clock, £20

For a slick 50s style even Don Draper would approve of, opt for a bold, brass clock. Functional and fashionable, it’s an ideal fit for dining rooms or studies. Scotch on the rocks, anyone?

1940s film noir

Black Spotlight Tripod, £25

For a modern take on a vintage style, opt for a tripod floor lamp. Inspired by the classic cinema style lamp, it’s perfect for channelling the feel of a 1940s Hitchcock film.

Ancient luxe

Large Black with Gold Effect Metal Bowl, £12

The ancient Egyptians were gold-hammering 5,000 years ago, so it’s hard to get a more long-lasting look than this one. And with black and gold being all the rage on the spring/summer 2015 catwalk, it’s still bang on-trend.

1930s style

Amber Glass Faceted Vase, £12

Add period drama style to your home with this faceted vase, which takes inspiration from the amber glassware trend of the 1930s.


Large Taper Lantern, £30

Conjuring images of horse and carriages travelling through the night, lanterns are hands-down the most romantic lighting. Suspend one or two outside for al fresco dining that last well into the night.
