5 Things We Love about French Connection Home

Each season, this fashion store's Home collection goes from strength to strength. Here's why we love it...

1 STYLISH SUSTAINABILITY

For Autumn-Winter 19/20 the brand has extended its sustainable offering to include woven rugs, made with recycled plastic bottles – yes you read that right – the plastic is cleverly turned into a silky yarn that can be woven and holds colour and print beautifully.

There are also bold, textured cushions made with recycled denim, and more shimmering recycled glassware.

Lunar blue cushion, £48; Large Indigo Mist rug £220; Sea Storm denim and leather rug, £125; Terrazzo candles, from £19, French Connection.

2 new concept store

The new space in Duke Street, Mayfair houses women’s and men’s wear, accessories, homeware and fragrance and feels more like a cool independent boutique than a high street stalwart. There’s even an artisan coffee shop Fernandez & Wells, where you can sip a macchiatto, glass of wine or bite to eat between purchases.

3 TREND-LED DESIGNS

As with its fashion side, French Connection is on the money where trends are concerned, leading the way with its rattan and cane furniture and industrial-style lighting.

French cane cupboard, £650; Molteni table lamp, £95; Magma vase, £19; Concrete candle, £14, French Connection.

4 FABULOUS LIGHTING

While French Connection isn’t the only High Street fashion brand to have nailed furniture and homeware, their lighting is on a par with some of the more premium interiors destinations. Who’da thought you could pick this beauty up with with a new clutch or coat at the same time?
