house proud

the new HOUSE by john lewis range, which launches in store today, is designed to be at the heart of a contemporary home: stylish modern design that has been well made and is surprisingly affordable.

the 600-piece range features everyday products that exude a clean, uncluttered aesthetic and includes furniture, lighting, textiles, cooking and dining accessories. the products have been created with long-lasting design in mind, with an evolving colour palette that is anchored by a strong combination of neutrals, with a playful set of solid colours and patterns being introduced for different seasons.

my favourite pieces from the new collection include the stride living room and bedroom furniture ranges, with their clean scandi-inspired lines and splayed legs,  as well as the fabulous range of knitted cushions and sofa throws.

i’m delighted to have 3 sets of red and 2 sets of grey knitted HOUSE cushions and throws to giveaway (worth £55 each) to five lucky readers. all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post letting me know which colour you’d prefer.

this giveaway is open to all residents of mainland united kingdom (except employees of the promoter, their families and anyone professionally involved with this promotion). the giveaway closes at 11.59pm on 28th september 2012, and the winner will be drawn at random and notified after this date.
