Best of the High Street: French Connection SS21

In good taste, we trust. When a brand expands out from what it’s most known for and moves into new realms; in many cases from the clothes in our wardrobe to the interiors we place in our homes, it’s interesting to see how they turn the corner and what approach they take. It’s fair to say fashion-first high street brands have certainly upped the game in recent years when it comes to creating beautiful, durable homeware products and it’s inspired our High Street series; showing the best of the high street for homeware and interiors.

Best High Street Brands for Homeware: French Connection

French Connection has long been one of the major fashion labels on the high street; for their modern, minimal design and bold personality. Remember the classic ‘FCUK Fashion’ campaign in the ’90s? Nothing like a good bit of drama. While we were swooning over their clothing range, they established a homeware range (a best kept secret, perhaps?) that embodies everything we’ve grown to love about the brand, and more.

Why more? Their recent collection has been created with an emphasis on sustainability; using naturally sustainable materials including Rattan, creating sculptural vases from recycled glass, and making stunning rugs made from plastic bottles. Leading the way in high street brands creating products that are both environmentally friendly, and beautiful.

There’s no doubt that French Connection has carried their impeccable style over to the homeware section. From Boho Chic to Japandi, there are pieces for everyone no matter your style.

Inspired by organic shapes

Our curved furniture piece, on how to bring curves into the living room, caught the imagination of a lot of our readers last week. Organic shapes and textures have grown on many of us, and it’s these elements that make the French Connection SS21 collection statements within themselves.

The goal of any room in the home is to be harmonious in how the interiors work with, and off, one another. If you’re going with the ’80 look of curved feature, the sleek leather design of the carver chairs makes for a gorgeous accent when paired with a curved statement sofa. Accompany with the Banswara coffee table and matching side tables to keep with the flow of the curves, then set it all off with this poppy field rug. Alternatively, you could weave in industrial features that will bring character and a unique look into the space, the sandstone console table and teardrop glass light speak volumes when brought together.

The French Connection collection is a breath of fresh air; adding statement pieces that will inevitably bring any space to life. Their latest range may not be extensive in choice, but with the products that have made the shelves, it’s clear to see the extent French Connection has gone to create a homeware brand of impeccable design. Perhaps it’s this simplicity and selectivity of their homeware products that we love and is true to the legacy of the brand.
