The must have items for 2013

Key Trend 1: Pioneer

Just like with fashion, the world of interiors is going global by tapping into the explorer trend that has been doing the rounds for a while.

“At John Lewis our inspiration is rooted in our pioneering ancestors,” says Rickwood. “We’re interested in the meeting point between different ideas and cultures, and have looked to places like the sun baked deserts and landscapes of the American southwest.”

Key Trend 2: Botanist

“Botanist is a distinctly British trend and draws on our national obsession with gardening in all of its forms,” says John Lewis Stratford City home design adviser, Jo Rickwood. “Our spring/summer 2013 collection is comprised of decorative accessories and soft furnishings in signature prints from the natural world. It also includes decorative glass and tableware, coasters and placemats; everything a home needs for a spring update.”
