Living Spaces

For almost every kind of home accessory and furniture – from armchairs to bar stools, plush sofas to smart storage solutions – Oliver Bonas in Jubilee Place is a brilliant place to start. Modern mirrors and wall-hangings are great for adding interest to plain walls and defining spaces, while colour and texture can liven up neutral rooms: think metallic planters, cool lamps and interesting accessories. As we approach winter, consider a velvet love seat or sofa in warming saffron yellow, dusk grey or mulberry red, teamed with a contemporary rattan sidebar or rattan drinks trolley. Meanwhile, you may associate Paul Smith, in Cabot Place, with clothes that are as chic as they are colourful, but his company also has a cool homeware line, comprising accessories, furniture and lighting, all in his trademark style. Particularly striking is a floor lamp with multi-coloured light shades on articulating arms, with a white marble base. Lush greenery and blooming flowers in living spaces can have as big an impact as clever lighting, and it’s easy to underestimate the moodenhancing impact of green leaves and beautiful flowers. Whether you’re green-fingered or want something low maintenance, the experts at Flowers & Plants Co. in Canada Place can recommend the perfect plants to suit your needs. Admire all your hard work while enjoying a brew from Whittard of Chelsea, One Canada Square, in one of its beautiful, illustrated teacups.

Home Essentials

When it comes to stylish electrical gadgets and home accessories, head to John Lewis & Partners or Robert Dyas in Canada Place. You’ll leave with what you needed, and undoubtedly a few more things that caught your eye. Fairy lights, a bread maker or an electric toothbrush? And no modern home is complete without an array of digital devices. Thankfully, the experts at the Samsung Experience Store and Currys PC World, both in Canada Place, can advise on everything from home appliances, smart tech, TV and audio to computing, gaming, phones and more.

Dining In

The trend for fun, colourful, collectable and contemporary glassware, plates, pots and crockery is going nowhere. So, inject some energy into your autumnal table settings. Start at Flying Tiger Copenhagen in Crossrail Place, where sustainability is at the top of the agenda. Oliver Bonas also has glassware in every shape, size and colour to suit your style, plus cool coasters, colour-popping mugs and eye-catching accessories. Whether you love champagne or cider, whisky, wine or port, you’ll find the glasses you need at John Lewis & Partners in Canada Place.

Bathroom Bliss

Bathrooms are often overlooked when it comes to design but having an ambient haven for your beauty routine is so important, not to mention a serene sanctuary for soaking in a bubble bath after a long day. And what’s a bath without candles? Candle kings Jo Malone London and The White Company have a tempting array, as well as gorgeously scented reed diffusers and, to stock your cabinets with sumptuous body butters and scrubs, head to The Body Shop in Jubilee Place.
