Home has always been our sanctuary but with many of us now working from home, it's more important than ever to refresh our space. Updating a room, living space or even a corner of your home is a great way to help you feel uplifted, inspired and a little more productive.
So this season, bring warm peach tones, toasted almond velvet and soft organic shapes into your interior for a calming home refresh. From statement accessory pieces and recycled glassware to soft textiles in velvet, Kasbah and linen, our Sunkissed collection will be sure to make your house the haven you'll be happy to spend all day, every day in.
We asked our head of homeware to select her must-have picks from the collection to share with you...
1. The Pandora and Kasbar Pouffes
Dress cosy corners with luxe textiles like our Pandora and Kasbar Pouffes
. Featuring intricate printed patterns inspired by traditional Moroccan designs and in natural hues, these oversized pouffes make the perfect accent pieces for your summer evenings. When the time comes, these pouffes are perfect for informal dinner parties scattered around a coffee table, but for now whilst we're inside, they're an inviting cosy reading spot.
2. Our Luxe Recycled Glassware
From your indoor picnic dates to your (house) party drinks with friends, bring a unique twist to your table setting with our collection of blush glassware
. From luxe champagne flutes to statement wine glasses, each piece is hand-crafted from salvaged glass with the aim of reducing waste.
3. Our Kasbar and Washed Velvet Cushions
Pile your sofa and beds high with eye-catching home accessories, like our Kasbar and Washed Velvet cushions
. Similarly to our oversized pouffe, the Kasbar cushion features a intricate pattern inspired by traditional Moroccan designs, adding a rustic touch to any space. Style yours alongside our washed velvet cushions
in toasted almond and terracotta hues for an extra sofa touch to your sofa.
"Our soft washed velvet cushions are perfect for an instant update to your interior this spring. The toasted almond and peach hues are my particular favourites from the collection. All 100% cotton with a beautiful matte finish and feather filler, they will sit effortlessly with dark upholstery as well as neutrals around your home."
4. Our Wall Baskets
Blank walls beware, our latest new arrivals to our wall art collection
are taking centre stage this summer. This season, fill bare walls with unique and bohemian-inspired baskets to add individuality to your home, giving you the perfect aesthetic for the warmer months. From blue hues to violet tones, mix and match with our other colourful and patterned wall basket styles for an eclectic look.
"I am very proud of our wall baskets - they are completely unique to French Connection. We developed them from a woven beach bag, reinventing a round straw bag and making it suitable for bare walls. The Jaipur artists printed the centres with traditional block print patterns - bringing a bit of Ibiza and Californian-cool to your home."
5. The Trumpet Recycled Glass Vase
Bring the outside in with our trumpet recycled glass vase
. Just add greenery or your favourite flower arrangement to add mood-boosting nature into your home for an instant spring refresh. With it's unique silhouette and completed with our signature luxe antique finish, this piece is sure to make a statement centre piece for any table setting.
6. Our Shoreline Tableware
Make the most of mealtimes, especially as we're spending lots of time indoors at the moment, with our range of contemporary tableware - the perfect way to update your dinner setting for the season. Our Shoreline collection of crockery are all hand-finished and artisan in design, adding rustic colours and organic shapes to your tableware this spring summer. Finished with a unique milky speckle glaze and contrasting hand-dipped terracotta rim, they perfectly coordinate with our recycled glass pieces for an effortlessly elegant table.
"Our Shoreline bowls are my go-to for every conceivable dish you could want - soup, curry, salad and desserts. Each piece from the collection is hand-finished, therefore no two are a like, so this is a very organic interpretation of incidental design which is at the heart of what I am trying to achieve with our collections.'
7. The Elipse Cane Ceiling Light
This spring, illuminate your favourite spaces with one of our head of homeware's must-have pieces, the Elipse Cane Ceiling Light. Designed in an organic curved shape with sustainable french cane and iron, this piece adds an elegant shape and ambient lighting to your living space.
"This light is crafted from hand woven rattan making it a statement-making piece for any space, however small. It's such as versatile piece - I love how it sits with the pouffe in the above image, creating a cosy reading corner but you can also style over a more traditional table setting and create a luxurious formal dining area."
