John Lewis are embracing the passion for Scandinavian design by introducing a new collection called ‘Copenhagen’. Typical of this style, the furniture is all about pared-back forms, function and quality craftsmanship, whilst the textiles have gone one step further. In line with current trends, the solid and simplistic patterns that you would expect to see have been replaced with more pixelated print methods, their Retreat and Rosendal cushions are a good example of this (image below). The colour scheme has a familiar base of pale grey, black and cream teamed with splashes of lemon, mustard and coral. It really is a lovely collection with a reasonable price tag, and will start to filter into store from July with the full range available by September 2014.
