2018 is the year of minimalist design, sleek interiors and lots and lots of plants.
And we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t spent many hours shopping around for the perfect homeware pieces to decorate our room. But it’s no mean feat: the struggle with trying to find perfectly colour coordinated pieces under one roof is real, which is why we’re over the moon that Westfield London’s latest expansion has given us so many new options for finding the most Instagrammable homeware.
But rather than have you hopelessly searching the web for a nice, conclusive list of all of Westfield London’s latest homeware stores, we’ve done God’s work and made them into a lovely list for you. And we’ve been realistic: We know that most of us can’t afford to splash out on an entire new bedroom all at once, but these small pieces are enough to make you notice a real change without breaking the bank.
Danish furniture brand BoConcept has a beautiful range that brings cutting-edge style to your home. Nearly all of its range can be customised to fit lifestyle and taste: from the freedom to change the colour and configuration of a storage system, to the vast 100+ types of leather and fabrics. The store also offers an interior design service to help with your specific needs and lifestyle, helping you perfect your dream room in one go. We’re running to BoConcept now to buy the Adelaide chair!
The White Company
You’ll already know The White Company for its luxuriously sleek homeware at Westfield London, but you might not have visited their redesigned branch yet. The White Company designs, produces and sells edited collections of the most gorgeous bed linen, home accessories, clothing, fragrances and gifts. It’s our first stop for blankets and throws to keep us warm this winter.
Clean designs and simple accessories are key to West Elm’s iconic brand, so it’s one of our go-to options for homeware that’ll stand out for all of the right reasons. The Oversized Metal Framed Mirror is exactly what we’re looking for to bring light into our rooms (desperate times in London flat shares, after all) without breaking the bank.
With sustainability at its core, Raft sells quality furniture and stylish accessories that will last for years and add a modern design to any room. All of their products are created ethically and each piece is unique in design due to the sustainable process. This Teak Root Table is our first pick and is small enough to fit in even the teeniest of rooms, but large enough to balance a plant or two on top.
John Lewis & Partners
Aside from selling everything from electronics to, well, the kitchen sink, John Lewis & Partners is also home to an excellent array of furniture and other homeware pieces. Our top pick is a ladder shelf like this one – the perfect way of making space when there isn’t much. But that’s only one of our favourite items in the huge store – you’re almost guaranteed to find something in Westfield London’s John Lewis & Partners.
Do you know what would be a bright idea right now? Heading down to Heal’s at Westfield London for a new lamp. Floor lamps are on almost everyone’s wish list right now and Heal’s huge variety of lighting means you’ll definitely find one to perfect your room. Whether you’re looking for a floor-to-ceiling light to accompany your bedtime reading, or a vintage-looking piece to be the focus point – Heal’s is the place to go.
And if there’s one thing you really should splash out on for your room, it’s a good mattress. Because no one wants to get home from a long day at work, or an even longer night out, only to collapse onto a bed of springs. Tempur mattresses have just opened a branch at Westfield, which means that if you’re in the market for a new bed, you should definitely pop by Tempur at the same time. Unfortunately, the dog isn’t included.
Natuzzi (opening soon)
Italian brand Natuzzi focuses its pieces on “harmonious living” which we’re taking to mean evenings spent together with your flatmates on the sofa, in front of the TV. So it fits perfectly that Natuzzi is a great spot for new armchairs and sofas. If you’re not looking for a new three-piece suite and would prefer one new addition to the room to brighten it up, look no further. If you’re anything like us, you’ll also have your eye on the minimalist accessory pieces “final touch” pieces dotted around the store, too.
Home to the dreamiest homeware on the market, we’ve watched Habitat form collaborations with more independent brands over the years than we could possibly buy pieces from. One of the most recent, the Jackson and Levine partnership, sold out online in an incredibly short period of time. However, luckily enough for us, some of the coolest tableware in town will be back in their stores this month – and they’ve just opened a branch in Westfield London. That’s some good karma, right there.
H&M HOME (opening soon)
We’ll gladly make time to visit H&M whenever we can, but the brand’s launch of H&M HOME gave us a whole other reason to detour there. And now, it’s opening its first standalone store at Westfield London. Everything at H&M HOME is so deliciously affordable that we’re determined to make time to visit the first branch ASAP. The word “blessed” definitely comes to mind.
And the rest!
That might seem like an awful lot of homeware shops, but Westfield London has plenty more tucked away. All of the above are the new stalls that have just opened, but we thought, for the sake of decorating your flat to its best potential, that we had to include some of the existing stores. When you’ve exhausted all of the new shops, make sure to spare some time and energy to also have a look around the likes of Dwell, Debenhams, Laura Ashley, House of Fraser and Zara Home.
