Can't decide how to update your home (inside or out) this summer? We've got just the thing.
We have an exciting new home showroom, ‘The French Connection Home Studio’, which has now officially launched in our Duke Street, London store.
Created through your love and demand for our homeware collection, the space will showcase the latest products all in one dedicated central London showroom. From our larger statement furniture pieces to your much-loved favourite home accessories, this space showcases the full home collection for you to explore, browse and shop.
“It’s really important to be able to see the product up close, the different techniques we use such as stone washing, dip dye, the sustainable focus, as well as the artisan look and feel that has been at the heart of the range since its conception 10 years ago.” - Our Head of Homeware.
Our much anticipated summer homeware collection embraces bohemian inspired textiles, natural textures and statement furniture, bringing a sense of escapism to your favourite spaces. And what better way to experience the collection than in one central homeware haven – The French Connection Home Studio.

Fran Saffari visits the Duke Street showroom…
We invited homeware enthusiast and lifestyle influencer, Francesaca Saffari, from @francescasaffari to our new French Connection Home Studio, in our Duke Street store, to explore and showcase her favourite picks from the showroom.
Everything from plush bohemian textiles to our most-wanted furniture pieces, here’s everything Fran is reaching for this summer from our all-new French Connection Home Studio…
1. The statement sideboard
Enhance your spaces with natural statement touches and
warm wooden pieces, like this Rattan Sideboard. A key favourite of Fran’s, its
rattan sliding doors help clear your clutter and its minimalist design makes it
the perfect focal point for any room.
2. Set the table
Shoreline Tableware Collection
Whether you're hosting an alfresco dinner, BBQ or looking to refresh your weekly dinner place settings, our shoreline tableware collection is yours (and Fran’s) go-to for the summer season. From salad bowls to side plates, these neutral hued, hand-dipped pieces bring a natural aesthetic to your dining settings, inside and out.
3. Beside views
French Cane Bedside Table
Nothing says ‘beachy bohemia meets modern design’ like
our French Cane Bedside Cabinet. Another piece on Fran’s must-have list – this cabinet
mixes the bohemian look of the rattan with the sleek modern finish of the
blonde mango wood frame, making it the perfect piece to store your essentials
night after night.
4. The most-wanted cabinet

Another hero piece
from Fran’s picks is the French Cane Cabinet, both in the natural and
contracting noir colourway. A statement furniture pieces you’ll love forever,
the cabinet features a responsible mango wood frame and hand-woven rattan panelled
doors. Whether you choose the soft natural hue or monochrome dyed shade –this
stylish piece can be used as storage for clothes and accessories, displays in
your living space, or as a focal point in your home office.
5. The textile shop
This summer fall in love with bohemian inspired textiles, sunset hues and hand-dyed fabrics in our textile collection – found throughout our home showroom. Bursting with rich colours like blush pinks and crimson hues, create a sense of calm and escapism in your home this summer with these soft touches. From plush cushions and perfect perches in the form of our pouffes to a range of our most-loved rugs, the showroom showcases all our favourite textiles in one space.
6. Let's picnic
Poppy Picnic Rug
A favourite of Fran's, for all her alfresco adventures this summer, is the Poppy picnic rug. Adorned in our best-selling poppy field print, either in a blush pink or cool mint hue, this love-forever piece is perfect for all your outdoor soirées and is a warm-weather essential. It even folds away into a sleek attached bag and also comes with a pillow – yes, we have thought of everything.
