As a freelance stylist I’m paid to shop. I’m forever trawling the High Street stores for that perfect piece that will look high end but be low budget. Budgets, don’t even get me started on those!
But most of us have budgets of our own right and there is nothing better than finding a designer rip off in your local supermarket or High Street shop.
So with that in mind, I though I’d start a mini blog series, called High Street Heroes and share with you some of the best pieces currently out there.
First up is French Connection. They are a brand known mainly for fashion, but over the last few years they have been bringing out a small but perfectly formed collection of homewares, as well as their sofa range for DFS.
French Connection have kept their collection very much on the theme of global inspired design. Many of these pieces would look perfectly at home in a Moroccan inspired interior or global boho style home as much as they would fit perfectly into a contemporary space.
I’ve recently bought quite a few pieces from French Connection for the client I am currently working with and I have been very impressed with the quality of the pieces, which are all beautiful and tactile, stylish and still a reasonably affordable price. This console table which is a favourite piece that I bought, has a parquet wooden top in a bleached drift wood finish, it is absolutely gorgeous and I just wish I could find room for it in our home?
I have done so much shopping for clients since the beginning of the year, that there is not much available on the High Street that I haven’t spotted or bought, so make sure to check in again for the next High Street heroes post.
