AW15 HOMEWARES AT OLIVER BONAS

With a company motto like ‘Work Hard, Play Hard & Be Kind’ it’s no surprise Oliver Bonas is one of my favourite brands on the British High Street right now.  When founder Olly opened his first store in Fulham, in 1993, it was packed with interesting things from interesting places.  But even as the brand has grown (there are now 42 stores across the UK) it’s heart remains the same – with a love of design and a passion for seeking out the unusual.  No surprise it’s a B.LOVED fave!

With their own team of designers working out of their London HQ, inspiration comes from global influences, genres and era’s to create a distinctive OB style.  They often ask themselves ‘is it special’, and you only need to take a quick look online, or inside one of their stores to know the answer is undeniably, yes.

This Autumn the design team has created the most stunning homewares range, combining minimalistic materials with luxe textures for a pared back, modern city living style. I’m coveting the lot!

THE TUB

A contemporary update on a classic tub, this cute velvet upholstered chair would look great in any space – especially my living room!  Available in fourteen colours, from elegant neutrals to eye-popping brights, I totally need one in every colour! £445 BUY NOW

THE OTTOMAN

These beautiful ottomans are handmade in Beeston, Nottinghamshire using traditional techniques and personally signed by the upholsterer.  With a 25 year guarantee and upholstered in quaity Designers Guild Cotton which is ecologically responsible using recycled yarn, this is a stunning piece that is sure to stand the test of time.  From £385 BUY NOW

THE CHAIR

Mid-century style gets my vote time & time again, so I love this French silhouette inspired chair.  I also adore the fun dogtooth fabric – an instant update for your home. £425 BUY NOW

THE SHELVING

I absolutely need this storage unit in my office, like, right now. Stylish, sturdy and in a gorgeous metallic copper, it’s perfect for everything from books and magazines to shoes or your favourite keepsakes.  From £245 BUY NOW

THE STORAGE

I’ve been considering purchasing a set of trunks, like, forever.  Stacked up in a corner holding a stack of spare blankets, or acting as an alternative nightstand in a bedroom, I’m particularly in love with the pink/grey/teal colour combo! From £45 BUY NOW

THE BAR TABLE

I’ve featured the Luxe Drinks Trolley before, but this bar table is the perfect accompaniment.. not that I have a lot of bar-related decor to display or anything!  Marble is a top trend for AW15 and mixed with a gold frame it’s absolutely gorgeous!  COMING SOON

THE RUG

Nothing adds warmth, texture and a touch of luxe to a room more than this gorgeous mink sheepkin! Whether added to a bare wooden floor (imagine sinking your toes into this every day!) or draped over your favourite chair, you can rest easy knowing it looks good and is a by-product of the farming industry so totally environmentally friendly too.  £60 BUY NOW

THE LOVE SEAT

Another want for B.LOVED HQ, the love tub is super cute and cosy!  In the same range as the velvet tub and ottoman, it’s another classic statement piece that’s modern and fresh yet will never go out of style. £565 BUY NOW

THE CHEST OF DRAWERS

Every home needs an awesome chest of drawers and I’m loving the cool, muted shades of this untreated wooden chest.  Blues and greys are totally my thing for AW, perhaps in the hallway or guest room? COMING SOON

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
